A new medical marijuana restaurant in Southern Oregon has gotten a city business license by changing to a bring-your-own-weed format.

Co-owner Michael Shea said Wednesday the Earth Dragon Edibles Restaurant & Lounge in Ashland, Ore., is now open to everyone, instead of just medical marijuana cardholders.

The free hashish bar has been shut down.

And the chef will no longer add hashish-infused oil to the Mongolian barbecue.

Instead, cardholders will add their own after going behind a curtain to a corner decorated with a wall hanging of reggae singer Bob Marley.

The owners had thought that if they gave away the pot ingredient, the establishment would be legal under Oregon’s medical marijuana law, but they were thwarted by a city ordinance that denies business licenses to anyone violating federal law.
