Pilot Rock Votes Against Pot Operations

Posted: Updated:

PILOT ROCK, Ore. (AP) - The small city of Pilot Rock has become the latest city in Umatilla County to ban marijuana businesses.
The Pilot Rock City Council voted unanimously Tuesday against allowing pot-related stores to operate within city limits. Pilot Rock now joins Athena, Weston, Stanfield, Umatilla and Ukiah in banning marijuana businesses.
The council's decision comes after a public hearing and a community meeting on the issue as well as two work sessions where residents, city staff and councilors debated over Oregon's legalization of marijuana.
The new ordinance takes effect immediately.
