Clarifying cannabis


January 30, 2020

DAYTON–To expand and clarify on the “Commissioners address cannabis issues” article in the January 23, 2020, Dayton Chronicle, further explanation of some facts need to be defined.

The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) was informed of on-line training for the potential hazards of applying code to cannabis facilities that Columbia County Associate Planner Dena Wood and Columbia County Building Inspector Clint Atteberry viewed. During the discussion, the commissioners were not invited to view the virtual training, but they did express interest in hearing a presentation from Aisling Management, LLC of Milton-Freewater, currently doing business at Blue Mountain Station.

It was stated that Atteberry and Martin went through a virtual training on applying the code to cannabis facilities.

“It was very, very informational,” said Martin in the meeting. “We’ll use it in code development, writing the code, code enforcement and in developing the conditional use permits.”

Atteberry then went to the Blue Mountain Hemp location at Blue Mountain Station to speak with them about “all the requirements” he had become aware of recently.

Martin stated that they (Blue Mountain Hemp), are doing a great job. They walked Atteberry through it and he was willing to come to the office and give a presentation. “If any of you would be interested in that, it’d be a good time to walk you through what they do out there, too,” said Martin directing her invitation toward the BOCC.

Commissioner Mike Talbott expressed an interest in the presentation as part of “one of their work sessions”.

“Yeah, if you guys want that, we could do that,” Martin said. “I thought it was interesting and for me, it just listed all the different kinds of facilities, which we’re not even aware of, that could potentially come in.”

“We need to be more informed, so…,” said Talbott.

“That’s it! You don’t know what you don’t know, until you know it,” said Martin.

“Yeah,” said Talbott.
