GOLD HILL, Ore. — Tensions were high at Monday night’sĀ Gold Hill City Council meeting as the council discussed new ordinances to potentially allow medical marijuana dispensaries in the city.

Two ordinances passed first readings on 4-2 votes and if they are passed at the second readings, a dispensary could open up as early as next month.

The city currently has a moratorium in place, but plans to take that down when they have discussed the new rules and regulations, but those decisions came after heated public comment.

Those ordinances will be voted on again at the June 2nd council meeting, and if passed, will take effect at that time.
