The Cave Junction City Council is seeking a judgment in federal court on medical marijuana dispensaries. Since a state law went into effect in March, dispensaries have been legal. However, marijuana is still illegal under federal law. Many counties and cities have opted to impose moratoriums on dispensaries.
Three of the five city councilors in Cave Junction voted to ask for a judgment. One voted against and one abstained. Both stated that they have connections to medical growers, and both support legal dispensaries. Cave Junction is a small town in Josephine County with a high percentage of medical marijuana card holders and registered growers. The city council hopes to get a preliminary decision regarding dispensaries within two weeks.
