The latest info on what is and isn’t legal about Marijuana – at least so far…today…this afternoon….last we looked…
Oregon’s seemingly never ending “adjustment period” following the passage of Marijuana Measure 91 continues to extend itself, it seems, out to the horizon of time itself. As a result, under the provisions of Measure 91, possession of marijuana is legal as of July 1st but there’s no way or place to buy it except (mostly) from the black market, which government officials have trumpeted for months is the last thing they want to see happen.
There has emerged, however, a plan to allow medical marijuana dispensaries to sell up to a quarter ounce of marijuana to the general public until the Oregon Liquor Control Commission can figure out how to handle it – they say by the first of the year – at the earliest. But that decision is getting heavily criticized by those who contend it’s a bad idea to combine medical and recreational marijuana inside one facility – something akin to selling oxycodone and beer at the same counter.
While ‘smart’ lawmakers “who know better” continue their never-ending merry-go-round of “ideas” on what to do and how to do it about recreational, as well as medical marijuana, a snapshot of how marijuana rules appear to be in play – AT THIS TIME – is offered up by The Oregonian. Click here.
