Oregon Measure 91 And Its Marijuana Regime Under Threat

Oregon nailed it with Measure 91. That initiative is business-friendly and has a tax structure that works for both marijuana businesses and consumers. Unfortunately, Measure 91 is being pulled apart by the Oregon legislature and may eventually suffer that same fate from the courts as well. The driving force behind some of the potentially biggest changes to

Oregon Psilocybin: Does Measure 109 Go Far Enough? Does it Go Too Far?

We are on record here at the law firm in support of Measure 109. We have friends and colleagues who have worked on the campaign and clients who have written checks, large and small.

Oregon Cannabis Laws: The War Between Recreational And Medical

When I-502 proponents were campaigning in Washington in 2012, many of them promised that I-502 would not change current medical cannabis laws. Though I-502 itself did not directly change Washington’s MMJ laws (it did not even mention those laws in its text), the overall effect of I-502 inevitably forced the state legislature to essentially eliminate Washington’s then existing

Oregon, Alaska, and D.C. Legalize Adult Use Marijuana. Congratulations!

After failing to legalize marijuana in November 2012, Oregon redeemed itself by passing Measure 91. Measure 91 legalizes recreational marijuana in Oregon and creates a state-lawful chain of distribution with licensed producers, manufacturers, and retailers. As we’ve previously blogged, we see Oregon as one of the next great opportunities in the marijuana industry. Alaska also legalized

BREAKING: Preliminary Cannabis and Psychedelics Election Results

Yesterday was a pretty big day for cannabis and psychedelics at both federal and state levels. Putting aside the presidency and congressional races, which haven’t yet finished, there were a number of statewide efforts to legalize cannabis, one measure to legalize therapeutic psilocybin, and two drug decriminalization efforts. All of them passed, and many of
