Oregon Voters To Decide Pot Legality

Marijuana-HempEUGENE, Ore. — This November, Oregon voters will once again get to decide whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

State elections officials Tuesday, certified that petitioners submitted enough valid signatures to qualify the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act, to appear on the upcoming election ballot.

According to the group, New Approach Oregon, the measure would allow Oregonians over the age of 21 to buy, possess and use marijuana.

Oregon voters rejected a ballot measure two years ago, but little money was spent promoting it.

New Approach Oregon says this year’s effort has received contributions from some of the same donors who backed the successful marijuana initiatives in Washington and Colorado.

    The success of the initiatives in WA and CO is debatable. Retail prices in WA are absurd. Let’s recall that, irrespective of tax revenue generated by retail sales of cannabis, the state saves millions by granting clemency to those wrongly convicted and incarcerated for cannabis related charges.
