    "The New Approach Oregon marijuana legalization initiative has qualified for the November ballot, the secretary of state's office reported today."(link)...
    "That means Oregon will join Alaska in voting on marijuana legalization this year. The District of Columbia is also likely to join that list; the cultivation and possession legalization initiative there is awaiting certification after handing in more than twice the number of signatures required to make the ballot."

    Oregon marijuana legalization activists have paid close attention to Washington's experiment with legal pot and have said they're determined to do things differently. Home marijuana cultivation would be allowed in Oregon, for instance. And drivers in Oregon won't face the driver impairment standards for THC imposed under Washington's recreational pot law.

    The Seattle Times' Hal Bernton dissects the different approaches in a piece published Sunday.

    Salutations Silver420Surfer,

    Lets have some pulse:

    Oregon Live: Marijuana is not comparable to alcohol: Letters to the Editor (2014-Oct-29)

    « ...law enforcement can't reliably prove which collisions are caused by pot. ... Measure 91 has no THC-potency testing requirements on marijuana or edibles. ... ...there is no plan for treating the resultant "smaller gray matter volume" which affects pot-using adults up through age 25. 100 percent of pot taxes should go to: an information blitz about pot and brain damage... »


    KPTV: Breaking down Measure 91 and the legalization of marijuana (2014-Oct-30)

    « If you increase the supply and lower the price dramatically, you're going to have a lot more use and unfortunately, you're going to have a segment of that population that abuses it... »

    Sounds familiar? Not much need to comment further i guess. Except some anti-cannabic prohibitionists are trying to set the stage, again, while they may have forgot to read the statistics (e.g. SAMHSA, NSDUH, YRBS, MTF)...

    :peace:
