Bill In Oregon House To Legalize And Tax Cannabis


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."
