Camas City Council bans retail marijuana sales
Public hearing draws a large crowd

October 26, 2015

The Camas City Council voted Monday to prohibit the retail sale of marijuana within city limits.

The 5-2 decision came following nearly two hours of public testimony reflecting both sides of the issue. City council members Don Chaney, Greg Anderson, Steve Hogan, Tim Hazen and Bonnie Carter voted for the ban, while Shannon Turk and Melissa Smith voted against.

Chaney indicated that he strongly opposes allowing retail marijuana sales in Camas. “Tonight, the question before us is whether or not we should allow retail sales of marijuana,” he said. “It’s not about the use or possession of marijuana, at least as far as I’m concerned. And, it’s not about the personal qualities or business opportunities of the proponents. That’s not an issue here for me. The issue is, what’s it going to do to our community, and how does the fact that we do or do not [allow retail marijuana businesses] reflect the culture of our community? We get to steer that a little bit because of decisions before us.”
