ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - The Albany City Council has temporarily banned the sale of recreational marijuana at medical dispensaries in a move some councilmembers say could foreshadow a permanent ban.

The Albany Democrat-Herald reports (https://goo.gl/rL1JG7 ) that after Measure 91 passed and legalized recreational marijuana across the state, assistant city attorney Sean Kidd prepared a synopsis of how feasible it would be to ban recreational marijuana at the City Council’s request.

Councilman Ray Kopczynski says Wednesday’s vote could set into motion steps to stop the sale of recreational pot permanently.

According to Kidd’s documents, only about 52 percent of Lin County voters opposed Measure 91. With that number, a local ban would need to be on the general election ballot in November 2016.
