By Ashley Carrasco/KTVL.COM
CENTRAL POINT, Ore - The city of Central Point is considering an ordinance that would require people to grow any kind of marijuana indoors. 

After measure 91 was passed the city sent out a survey. The city development director said results show people do not mind marijuana as long as they cannot see or smell the pot.

The development director also said Central Point police back the ordinance because it gives them a a better idea on how to manage marijuana laws when it becomes legal in July. The proposal goes to a second city council reading next week. 

More law enforcement looking into opiate antidote

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.- A Medford Police officer used the antidote Naloxone to save a 23 year old's life who was overdosing on heroin and was experiencing respiratory failure.

This is the fourth time a Medford Police officer has used the antidote since the department took hold of it last February.

Now, other agencies in the area want to hop on board and equip their officers with the antidote so more lives can be saved.

"A traffic stop or we're called to someone who's unconscious and we get there before medical we'll have the training and the tools to assist," said Sgt. James Biddle from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

The agency is in the beginning stages of getting the proper training needed and plans to implement having all patrol deputies be in possession of the antidote in the very near future, says Sgt. Biddle.

Downtown Businesses Fighting Sky Park

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Some businesses are against downtown Medford housing.

Sky Park would put in 26 residential units in downtown Medford, across the street from the library where currently a parking lot sits.

At the last public hearing, the Site Plan and Commission rejected their proposal. Sky Park filed an appeal, despite the opposition.

Downtown businesses are against this project for a number of reasons. Some businesses said putting in housing would add to the parking problem downtown, which could detract from some of their business. Others said if they had known about this project, they would not have moved their locations downtown.

"Perhaps industry would like to move back into the industrial part of Medford opposed to the residential housing," Farrell's Glass Service owner Stephen Cook said. "There's plenty of other places this could be developed that would be more conducive to the growth of our town."

If they project does get approved, local businesses said they will file an appeal, and keep fighting.

The public hearing is Thursday at 7 p.m. at City Hall in Medford.

Back in Court to Defend Jackson County G.M.O.-Ban
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.com
MEDFORD, Ore. -- Groups defended the ban on genetically-modified crops in Jackson County in court Wednesday.

In 2014, 66% of Jackson County voters were in favor of banning GMOs.

In court is exactly where Our Family Farms Coalition leaders and other farmers, like Chris Hardy, expected to be.

The plaintiff's lawyer for Schultz Family Farms argued the Right to Farm and Forest Act introduced in 1981.

He said there is a need to protect the full resource-base of the state and allow farmers to grow what they want, even GMOs.

Hardy said Oregon grows only a few genetically-engineered crops for its total agriculture and in Jackson County it's a very small number.

One of the main issues in court is with the ban, Jackson County Ordinance 635, dealing with farm nuisances and trespasses and if it can legally ban anyone growing GMOs.

The defense said the community support from businesses, other farmers and the general public, is overwhelming.

Some Colorado residents came to support the defense and see how the battle over the ban plays out.

Hardy hopes the judge understands the ordinance is clean and valid.

"We're expecting the federal courts to listen to 66% of citizens who showed up at the polls to vote. It doesn't get any clearer than that in my books. That's how democracy works and that's what we’re here to do," Hardy said.

Hardy said despite the current speed bump, dealing with a court case, nobody should get discouraged.

The county has come far and nobody should look back.

A decision wasn't expected on this case today.
