SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The president of the Oregon Senate has moved to break an impasse over rules on legal marijuana.

Members of both the House and Senate had been working together on a committee to write the rules. The regulations would have included a number of restrictions designed to curb the flow of medical marijuana into the black market.

But on Monday, the committee deadlocked on local control over medical marijuana dispensaries.

On Wednesday, Senate President Peter Courtney of Salem said he was naming the five senators who’d been on the joint committee as members of a Senate-only special committee to propose rules for the law that voters passed last year to legalize recreational marijuana.
