Election 2018: Pot Sales Fail in Sisters and Culver

Voters in the cities of Sisters and Culver rejected measures that would’ve allowed marijuana dispensaries in the city limits.

Voters in Sisters banned both medical and recreational marijuana sales, but a measure that would’ve taxed pot sales if dispensaries had been allowed passed with a majority vote.

Dispensaries are also likely to be voted down in Culver, but the race is still very tight.

Culver is one of two local cities that currently bans legal marijuana businesses from operating. However, Culver residents will get the chance to either keep or lift the ban this November.
