Oregon Measure 91 – a Smart, Responsible Way to Regulate Marijuana

OREGON—(ENEWSPF)—August 18, 2014. Treating marijuana use as a crime has failed across the nation.  This country has spent 40 years and more than $1 trillion dollars on the War on Drugs.  These numbers make it clear it’s not succeeding.

It’s time for a smarter and safer approach that will control the use of marijuana, protect children and communities and generate significant revenue for important public needs such as public safety, treatment and education.

This November the people of Oregon will vote on Measure 91 to bring a new approach to marijuana policy in the state. The measure will:

Safely regulate marijuana sales and possession at all levels.

Legalize use of marijuana for adults 21 and over while protecting youth.

Generate millions in tax revenue in the first two years.
