CRESWELL, Ore. — Residents in Creswell, Oregon, have voted to maintain a ban on recreational marijuana sales.

The Register-Guard reports a marijuana startup based in the southern Lane County community pushed for the initiative that brought a second vote on recreational marijuana sales.

Voters last November narrowly approved a ban. This time, it was a landslide. Unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show more than 80 percent of voters opting to keep the ban in place.
