| Medical marijuana in Oregon live chat 11 a.m. Monday: Talk about local control over dispensaries|
Senate Bill 1531, if approved by lawmakers, raises questions about the legal status of dispensary bans already passed in a handful of Oregon communities. It sets the stage for a court battle between medical marijuana retailers and the growing number of local governments that don't want them.
The Oregon Senate is expected to vote this week on a bill that would allow local governments to regulate but not ban medical marijuana outlets.The bill, and the implications for local governments, will be the subject of a live chat at 11 a.m. Monday in the comments of this story.The vote comes as an increasing number of communities statewide have moved to outlaw medical marijuana establishments, already a thriving industry in Oregon. Senate Bill 1531, if approved by lawmakers, raises questions about the legal status of dispensary bans already passed in a handful of Oregon communities. It sets the stage for a court battle between medical marijuana retailers and the growing number of local governments that don’t want them. A new state law, passed last year, creates a registry of medical marijuana facilities in Oregon. The establishments will be subject to security and testing requirements, as well as other rules that were crafted by a committee of policy makers, lawyers, state officials and medical marijuana advocates.The Association of Oregon Counties and the League of Oregon Cities pushed for a bill in the current legislative session that would allow local governments to ban medical marijuana retailers, but the ban was stripped from the bill that passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.Two people who served on a committee that drafted rules for medical marijuana establishments -– Rob Bovett and Geoff Sugerman – will join Monday's live chat about local control of medical marijuana dispensaries. Bovett is a former Lincoln County District Attorney and is now legal counsel for the Association of Oregon Counties. Bovett has been sharply critical of the medical marijuana dispensary law and supports the rights of local communities to ban the establishments.Sugerman is a longtime political and a medical marijuana advocate who helped draft the state’s dispensary law. Sugerman, now a medical marijuana business consultant, thinks regulations for medical marijuana establishments are strong and that communities should not be allowed to ban retailers.Feel free to take part in the conversation now by posting questions, comments and concerns about local control over medical marijuana facilities. Bovett and Sugerman will join the chat starting at 11 a.m. tomorrow.-- Noelle Crombie

| Video visitation coming soon to Multnomah County jails|
Other counties -- including Washington and Clackamas -- already offer video conferencing between relatives and inmates.
Relatives of Multnomah County jail inmates soon can visit their loved ones without leaving their homes via video conference chats, a growing trend in jails and prisons nationally.
The Oregon Department of Corrections already offers video visitation in 12 of its 14 prisons. The calls are scheduled in 30-minute increments.
Washington County began offering video conferencing for jail inmates earlier this year. Clackamas, Lincoln and Josephine counties have taken it a step further, replacing on-site jail visits with video calls.
In Multnomah County, relatives will pay 65 cents a minute to talk to their locked-up loved one by video.
'It's going to cost them. It's not going to cost the taxpayers,' said Multnomah County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Mike Shults.
The technology allows more frequent visitation -- seven days a week and on holidays compared to the two-day-a-week limit for on-site visits -- and reduces inmate movement in the jails, Shults said. Deputies won't have to pat down and transfer inmates from dorms to the visiting areas as frequently.
The technology also will allow families to make direct deposits to an inmate's fund using credit or debit cards or a check. This will halt the handling of cash and checks by county deputies, a recommendation from a 2011 county audit.
'The key is to allow families the ability to do things from home without having to come in,' Shults said.
Multnomah County has signed a contract with Securus Technologies to install wiring for video kiosks at the Inverness Jail and Multnomah County Detention Center over the next several months. The video chat service should be available in about six months, Shults said.
The estimated $90,000 to $150,000 cost of the wiring will come from the jails' inmate welfare funds, made up of phone commissions and commissary profits. Revenue from the video chats will be split between the inmate welfare funds and the contractor.
View full sizeVideo touch screen kiosks are going to be installed in both the Iverness Jail and the jail at the Justice Center in downtown Portland. Beth Nakamura/The Oregonian Inverness Jail will have 58 kiosks and the downtown Portland jail will have 28. Most will be in the jail dorms, but six will be placed in the lobby of each jail. The lobby video kiosks will be free to use.
All the video chats will be recorded for security purposes, and Multnomah County will continue to allow physical visits.
The jails hold an average of 1,250 inmates at any given time, but more than 37,000 people move through the county system each year.
In Lincoln County, video visitation began in February at 35 cents a minute. Personal visits there are a thing of the past, said Sheriff Dennis Dotson.
The 161-bed jail in Newport has averaged a dozen to two dozen video calls a day. The chats enable family or friends who live far from Newport to visit with inmates without traveling and at less expense, Dotson said. Relatives with felony convictions weren't permitted to visit inmates at the jail, but now can participate on video chats. The calls also can occur any day of the week, with no time limits, compared to the on-site visits, which were restricted to weekends.
Some family members have complained, preferring to see their loved ones at the jail, Dotson said. But there's not much of a difference -- shatterproof glass divides the visitor from the inmate at the jail and they talk by phone, he said.
'There's no contact, touching or interaction in the jail visits,' Dotson said.
He's glad children no longer run around the jail's lobby, which 'just didn't seem right,' he said.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office began offering video visitation in May at $9.90 for 30 minutes, said Sgt. Vance Stimler. In the last month, the office has logged 86 video calls, Stimler said.
In addition to cutting travel time for relatives, the technology also allows inmates to send medical requests or grievances to jail staff electronically, using a touch screen, eliminating paperwork, he said.
But the county is continuing on-site visits. 'They're still very popular,' Stimler said. 'There's nothing better than being face-to-face for loved ones.'
Public criminal defense attorneys would like to take advantage of the video visits to meet with their clients, but the costs would have to be covered by the state Office of Public Defense Services, said Lane Borg, executive director of Metropolitan Public Defenders.
'You'll have a lot less traffic in and out of the jail,' Borg said.
