OREGON: Albany City Council members may not be not averse to pursing a permanent ban on recreational marijuana.
The council on Wednesday voted to ban temporary sales of recreational pot at medical dispensaries, with two of six councilors, Ray Kopczynski and Dick Olsen, dissenting.
The vote could be a harbinger of greater plans to ban the drug permanently.
“My gut feeling is that there may be an attempt to try to do that,” Kopczynski said of the possible move.
Beyond Kopczynski’s assessment, documents from the council seem to suggest such a move is possible.
