Apply for a Marijuana Regulatory License

This map ONLY shows locations for which the Cannabis Program has received an application for a Medical Dispensary or Marijuana Retailer, as well as K-12 schools. Portland City Code 14B.130 requires Medical Dispensaries and Marijuana Retailers to be at least 1000 feet from K-12 schools. This map is NOT updated in real time. There may be schools, Medical Dispensaries, or Marijuana Retailers that are licensed or whose applications are under review that are not shown on this map. Applicants CANNOT and SHOULD NOT rely on this map for verification that a location is further than 1,000 feet from a school, Medical Dispensary, or Marijuana Retailer.
