EUGENE, Ore. — It’s been four days since medical marijuana dispensaries have been able to apply for a license and Lane County has already had dozens of applicants.
Lane County Public Health says 41 applications have been turned in. That’s the second most in the state behind Multnomah County, which has seen more than 100.
David Evans owner of the Emerald City Medicinal Delivery Service says they applied for a license as soon as they could.
“We’re very excited about being a part of this community. We hope that cannabusiness, in general, doesn’t see one another as competitors but as a body that’s trying to bring better health to our community and to be able to do things in a legal and professional way,” said Evans.
Evans says he expects to be up-and-running by the end of next week.
