Oregon legalization measure to be on November ballot pending signature approval


New Approach Oregon, a group looking to legalize limited amounts of herb for adults 21 and up, will submit 145,000 signatures to the Oregon Secretary of State today, 57,000 more than required.
If the signatures are approved, it will mean that the Control, Regulate and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act will be on the November ballot. Adults 21 and up would be able to purchase cannabis at retail stores as well as grow their own at home so long as there aren’t more than four pot plants growing at a time and no more than eight ounces of herb on site. Homegrowers would also be able to keep up to sixteen ounces of infused products like edibles, oils and butter.
Regulation would be left up to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
