Dispensaries in Redmond, Oregon
Are Medical Marijuana Dispensaries allowed in the City of Redmond?
The City of Redmond:
No. The City of Redmond Business License Code has required that all businesses in the City of Redmond be compliant with local, state and federal laws and regulations since 1989. Since marijuana is still considered an illegal controlled substance by the federal government the City of Redmond cannot issue a business license to any business associated with marijuana.
Although a Medical Marijuana Dispensary is a non-profit operation., all non-profits in the City of Redmond need to have a business license to operate. (Redmond City Code, Section 7.015 and Section 7.020).
Additionally, the City of Redmond Development stipulates that no parcel of land or structure may be used for, or in conjunction with, an activity that violates any state or federal law. (Redmond City Code, Section 8.0026).
