County officials want your input, questions in marijuana town hall

Medford, Ore. – Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal and Director of Jackson County Development Services Kelly Madding are hosting a town hall meeting to talk about the legislation surrounding marijuana.

While Oregonians can buy marijuana now, the recreational program hasn’t taken effect in terms of growing, processing, wholesaling, and retailing, and won’t until January. The presentation will also cover current state laws and information about how the county may move forward with their own local laws.

“Helping people understand what’s happening out there, what they’re looking like, what they’re shaping up to be looking like,” Breidenthal said. “Then, how we can come together as a community and figure out what we want to see in a local ordinance that will finalize the process, and what we have to live under.”

Following the presentation, questions and suggestions from the audience will be addressed, and noted as the county considers it’s own laws. It will also allow those interested to be notified by the county, as the process moves forward.

The town hall meeting is open to everyone, and will be held at the Medford Library Wednesday night at 6:30 PM.
