ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — The owner of an Ashland medical marijuana dispensary is appealing a state decision that closed his business.
The state denied Mike Welch a dispensary license because Oregon law requires dispensaries to be located at least 1,000 feet from a school, and Puff’s Smoke Shop in 990 feet from one.
Welch told the Mail Tribune newspaper (http://is.gd/8xeOn1 ) he has an appeal hearing on July 29 in Salem.
Welch says Puff’s might be less than 1,000 feet from the school as the crow flies, but kids would have to scale rooftops to get there in less than 1,000 feet.
