    Court backs ban on outdoor marijuana cultivation in Grants Pass

    The Oregon Court of Appeals has affirmed a Grants Pass ordinance that requires marijuana plants grown at home for personal use to be grown indoors. The City Council approved the ban on outdoor cultivation shortly after recreational marijuana became legal. The council members were concerned about offensive odors.

    @macbill Funny how a number of the news posts you share(thanks for them all!) could be read by your latest avatar(I love that old guy!).
    He and many of these news stories share a real "Get off my lawn!" vibe.
    1000 apologies ahead of time if that's you in the pic.:)

    It’s the typical Oregon split. The vast majority of the population lives in the valley, and a rural conservative minority believes that the valley “controls too much”.

    Josephine County is the latest trying “spoil” what the electorate by and large wants. This is the same county that we have someone suing a sporting goods store for implementing a minimum age of 21 to buy a rifle.

    This is also the same county where a woman was sexually assaulted after calling 911 and being told that, “you guys don’t have any law enforcement out there”.

    It seems to me they could use some of the tax revenue from cannabis sales.

    Rural Oregonians are perpetually butthurt about the Portland metro area "telling folks how to live", a privilege they jealously guard for themselves.

    List of pot grow sites causing friction

    A state agency has refused to provide a county sheriff and prosecutor in Oregon with a list of medical marijuana grow sites, marking the latest friction over marijuana between local and state officials.

    On March 13, Oregon Health Authority official Carole Yann told Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel and Sheriff Shane Nelson that the law doesn’t permit the agency to provide the list.

    Marijuana growers diversify with hemp amid CBD boom

    A glut of legal marijuana has driven Oregon pot prices to rock-bottom levels, prompting some nervous growers to start pivoting to another type of cannabis to make ends meet — one that doesn’t come with a high.

    Applications for state licenses to grow hemp — marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin — have increased more than twentyfold since 2015, and Oregon now ranks No. 2 behind Colorado among the 19 states with active hemp cultivation. The rapidly evolving market comes amid skyrocketing demand for a hemp-derived extract called cannabidiol, or CBD, seen by many as a health aid.

    What we've learned from three years of legal marijuana

    For the United States, marijuana use among adults barely budged from 2014-15 to 2015-16. But in Oregon, which already has much more widespread use than the national average, the survey detected a statistically significant increase after legalization.
