Local law enforcement officials concerned about future marijuana dispensaries 

La Grande Police Chief Brian Harvey fears that the number of people in Union County driving while under the influence may soon increase.

And the reason will have nothing to do with alcohol. 

Harvey is convinced that as medical marijuana dispensaries open in La Grande, the number of people driving under the influence of marijuana will rise significantly.

“I’m very concerned about a possible increase in marijuana-impaired drivers,” Harvey said.

La Grande presently has no medical marijuana dispensaries but one, Green Apothecary, may open here in the near future. The City of La Grande Planning Division granted Green Apothecary a permit on May 29 to operate. 

Harvey said an increase in the number of people driving while impaired by marijuana has happened in other areas where marijuana became more accessible, leading to tragedy.
