CRESWELL, Ore. - A second rally is planned to protest the possibility of a recreational marijuana dispensary opening in Creswell.

Organizers said the protest be Monday, October 16th, at the intersection of Oregon Avenue and the I-5 southbound exit starting at 5:00 P.M.

On Monday, October 2nd two political action committees opposing measure 20-280 held a rally where dozens of people showed their opposition to the measure.

Currently, recreational dispensaries are not allowed within city limits.

Voters will decide whether to approve it and allow it to open, on the November ballot.
