JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore.-- The Josephine County Board of Commissioners is changing its current policy relating to the possession and usage of marijuana on county property.

The board says its updating an existing policy which they say needed to be clarified.

The existing policy prohibited any use on county properties, like parks and fairgrounds, but the updated policy makes it so marijuana *possession* is also prohibited on county property.

The policy doesn't apply to events on private property in the county.

Lily Morgan says, "We had an event that it was clear that there were no drugs or alcohol were allowed at the event, there were kids present and the band members were throwing marijuana from the stage into the crowd, there were kids at the event. That's a violation of the policy we had but we wanted to make sure any questions relating to the policy would be clear, and while on the public property this isn't allowed."

The updated policy changes the way permits for events are issued as well. The board says it will decline to issue permits for any event on county property if the event involves any marijuana related activities.

Applicants for a permit must declare their event will not include any usage or possession of marijuana.

All applications will require a bond no less than $500. If the restriction is violated, the county will retain the bond and may assess additional fees.
