COVE, Ore. (AP) - No marijuana will be sold legally in the northeastern Oregon city of Cove.

The La Grande Observer reports (https://is.gd/PluQln ) that the Cove City Council passed an ordinance Tuesday opting out of Measure 91, which legalized the sale of marijuana for recreational purposes.

The ordinance took effect immediately because of an emergency clause and means the city will meet the state’s late December deadline for opting out.

Counties and cities that voted at least 55 percent against Measure 91 were able to institute a ban without putting it on the general election ballot. Approximately 59 percent of Union County voters opposed Measure 91. Cove voters rejected Measure 91 174 to 104 in 2014.
