Council reduces city costs for marijuana-related businesses

According to the city, there will be more changes to Portland's cannabis regulations in the coming months and years.

The City Council lowered licensing and other fees for marijuana-related businesses in Portland on Wednesday, including providing financial incentives for small companies who are partly owned by or employ a percent of people previously convicted of marijuana-related crimes.

The changes were submitted by Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who oversees the Office of Community and Civic Life, which manages the city's management of marijuana-related businesses.
