With the approval of Measure 91, the state of marijuana in Portland is changing quickly. As legalization requirements and plans are still being ironed out, one positive aspect of the approval of recreational cannabis in Oregon has already helped many marijuana users receive justice. Less than one week after approving Measure 91, prosecutors in Multnomah County announced that they would no longer be prosecuting crimes that involve marijuana. Additionally, all pending violation-level cannabis possession cases have been dismissed. With so many voters in the county supportive of recreational marijuana, the DA’s office believes that they shouldn’t prosecute something that will shortly ...

Pot is legal now, so who’ll sell it?

PORTLAND, Ore. – A day after Oregon voters approved Ballot Measure 91, which legalizes recreational marijuana, Harvey Cummings is already looking to the future. "We are so excited that it passed.

Oregon voters legalize recreational marijuana

PORTLAND — Oregon voters legalized recreational pot use Tuesday, making the state the third to approve the drug for commercial sales.
