Oregon orders 9 unlicensed medical marijuana dispensaries to shut down


PORTLAND, Oregon — Oregon says nine unlicensed medical marijuana dispensaries have been ordered to close since the state launched its dispensary program last March.

The Oregonian reports ( ) that six of the nine were in Portland.

The letters from the Oregon Health Authority also went to one dispensary in Astoria, one in Veneta and one in North Bend.

The agency says that in some cases, the dispensary operators had already been told they wouldn't be licensed because they were within 1,000 feet of a registered dispensary or a school. In others, they did not apply for a license.
