The postponement came at the request of City Councilor Belinda Ray
The Portland City Council on Monday postponed a vote to establish zoning rules for marijuana-related businesses.
The postponement came at the request of City Councilor Belinda Ray, who planned to offer two amendments but missed the meeting because of an illness. The council rescheduled the vote for Feb. 20.
