Will Oregon be first to end prohibition of cannabis?
Host Stephanie Potter speaks Paul Stanford and Jennifer Alexander who are working to put the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act 2012 on the November, 2012 ballot. If passed this initiative would legalize the purchase of marijuana (through state licensed stores), license Oregon farmers to grow marijuana for state-licensed stores, and permit adults to grow their own. The act would also allow unlicensed Oregon farmers to grow cannabis hemp for fuel, fiber and food.
Initiative organizers have until July 7, 2012 to gather 90,000 registered Oregon voters' signatures to qualify for the November 6, 2012 ballot. Organizers expect to have enough signatures well before the deadline.
OCTA 2012 is also announcing a series of three benefit concerts featuring reggae music legends, Toots & The Maytals on Independence Day weekend. Toots & The Maytals will headline three shows, starting at the Lane County Fairgrounds in Eugene on Saturday, July 2, then the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond on Sunday, July 3, and culminating at the Washington Park Rose Garden Amphitheater in Portland on Monday, July 4.
