Money for schools, public safety and other important initiatives, has been hard to come by in the down economy and some legislators in Oregon's House of Representatives have a plan. It's outlined in House Bill 3371.

Representative Peter Buckley said in a statement: "I believe it would be in the best interest of our state to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. I doubt it will pass in this session, since there is a strong interest in seeing what happens in Colorado and Washington, but I believe it has a good chance of passing on the ballot in 2014."
