Portland Makes Steps Towards Fixing Cannabis Regulations
-The city of Portland begins to rebuild rules and around cannabis
Portland’s new mayor is making slow progress. On his claims that he will fix the the city’s mess of cannabis rules. Wheeler has stated that the bureau most need of reform is the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI). And has already replaced ONI’s previous head.
The previous head was Amanda Fritz who was openly hostile to cannabis. Now the industry is hoping for better relations with the new commissioner. Newly appointed Chloe Eudaly is working with cannabis businesses to streamline the process. We expect to have a closer working relationship with the city going forward.
Mr. Ausitn has some work left to do with the cannabis rules and issues.
This city is growing rapidly and there are new issues every day. We expect many of the issues of cannabis and the city will be solved this year.
