La Grande City Council votes down moratorium on marijuana dispensaries 

The La Grande City Council bucked a trend Monday night, voting against a proposed moratorium on medical marijuana dispensing facilities.

So far, more than 100 Oregon cities have taken advantage of a provision in Oregon Senate Bill 1531 that empowers local governments enact one-year moratoriums on the dispensaries, which the state allows under recently passed House Bill 3460. By a 3-2 vote, the La Grande council decided against joining the pack. 

The moratorium would have given the city a year to decide on local regulations regarding zoning, locations of dispensaries and the hours of operation. Mayor Daniel Pokorney and Councilor Mary Ann Miesner favored it, but three other councilors, Gary Lillard, Jerry Sebestyen and John Lackey, decided the extra time wasn’t necessary.

Jeremy Riggle, an assistant professor of chemistry at Eastern Oregon University and the  laboratory director for Eastern Oregon Analytical, explains how a chromatogram reveals the levels of cannabinoids present in a sample of medical marijuana that was run through the company's high-performance liquid chromatograph.
