OREGON: The town of Gold Hill, Oregon is in turmoil. Two-thirds of its City Council is the subject of a recall election on Monday.
What has some of the 1,2000 residents of Gold Hill so riled up? The targeted city leaders had voted to approve a medical marijuana dispensary.
From the outside, Breeze Botanicals doesn’t look like a place that sells pot. There’s a couple of crates of garden veggies out front. Walk inside, and you’re greeted by soothing acoustic music. But there’s one thing that hints of something amiss: A big sign that says “Vote No on the recall.”
Owner Brie Malarkey said she really didn’t want to get into politics when she opened her dispensary a few months ago.
