Oregon`s Historic Election (We`re there, John Sinclair!)
Michael Donnelly Special to Salem-News.com
Don't Bogart That Victory!
(SALEM, Ore.) -Bottom Lines for Oregon Election 2014? Oregon voters are pretty savvy on a lot of issues; Oregon is a one-party state; money still exercises a lot of speech in Oregon – and “Follow the Money” remains the best political advice; New Jersey, Illinois, Louisiana, Carl Hiaasen’s Florida...aren’t the only states with political soap operas and dubious ethics...
One cannot lead off about Oregon Election 2014 with anything other than the End of Prohibition (again). Whew. It’s been a long haul. It was the fourth try here. Pretty much the sole opposition came from the Oregon Sheriffs and the State Prosecuting Attorneys, who financed the No on Measure 91 campaign. Of course, they feared their Asset Seizure and Butts-in-Jail Beds scams coming to an end.
Measure 91 to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana Passes in Oregon!
Oregon has returned to it's GRASS ROOTS, a leader in equality and common sense.
(SALEM, Ore.) -Oregon’s Measure 91, to legalize, regulate and control marijuana, though predicted to be a tight race, won by a handy margin in a race called by the Oregonian early in the night.
The new regulatory system will be overseen by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, in consultation with the State Department of Agriculture and the Oregon Health Authority and will allow adults over 21 to possess up to eight ounces of marijuana and grow up to four plants.
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. it is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this county is closely connected with this."

shot by the USDA, who denied its existence, until Jack Herer proved it.

Ban on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries is Lifted in Salem
Bonnie King Salem-News.com
Salem is respecting the Oregon voters by giving patients a place to access their medicine, legally.
(SALEM, Ore.) -The City of Salem Council Subcommittee on Medical Marijuana Dispensary Regulations was formed last spring and has worked for months on a plan that would work best for all involved.
Done. The Council agreed to the detailed plan and applications for licenses to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Salem were accepted beginning October 28, 2014. Now that the council has voted to lift the moratorium, several new dispensaries will be opening up in Salem. But what will it cost them?
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -“This weekend, Riverfront Park is the sole place in town you can’t light up a joint” – a joke that made the rounds.
The Tenth Annual Portland Hempstalk was held last weekend at Portland’s Tom McCall Riverfront Park, the site of many large festivals. The pro-Hemp/Pro-legalization of recreational adult use event was held just 38 days before Oregonians vote to join the citizens of Washington and Colorado and End Prohibition, (again).
