Marijuana lawsuit

An Oregon marijuana operation has prevailed in a lawsuit filed against it by neighboring vineyards.

Oregon’s Deschutes County can’t stop marijuana cultivation near “youth activity centers” because they’ve been defined too ambiguously, according to the state’s Land Use Board of Appeals.

The county now must approve two applications for marijuana production facilities that were previously rejected for being within 1,000 feet of youth activity centers contrary to its code, LUBA said.
