The Struggles of Legalizing an Illicit Substance http://bwfreporters.com/blog/the-struggles-of-legalizing-an-illicit-substance/ http://bwfreporters.com/blog/the-struggles-of-legalizing-an-illicit-substance/#respond Mon, 14 Aug 2017 17:06:22 +0000 http://bwfreporters.com/?p=703 Known for being one of the first US states to decriminalize and legalize marijuana for recreational use, the state of Oregon has made leaps and bounds in establishing a healthy and legal industry base for the infamous five-leafed plant. However, because only select states have followed Oregon’s example, states like California, Colorado, and Michigan are still struggling to find a balance when it comes to maintaining a legal infrastructure for the pot industry.  And now, authorities currently suspect that a certain percentage of pot being legally grown in Oregon is being illegally smuggled out for higher profits elsewhere. Unfortunately for Oregon, the area is part of the “Emerald Triangle,” an area of the United States that grows up to 60% of all marijuana in the nation, leading to a higher market supply than demand. For more on the story and Oregon’s plans to implement a product tracking system, look to CBS News.

Oregon Senate Approves Proposal for Anonymizing Pot Users http://bwfreporters.com/blog/oregon-senate-approves-proposal-for-anonymizing-pot-users/ http://bwfreporters.com/blog/oregon-senate-approves-proposal-for-anonymizing-pot-users/#respond Wed, 22 Mar 2017 20:14:19 +0000 http://bwfreporters.com/?p=570 As with many cases where regional and federal governments have two different stances on the same issue, there comes the question of is it still legal or not? Since the summer of 2015, weed has become a legal substance in the state of Oregon. However, the possession of weed is still considered a crime by our federal government. Now with recent crackdowns on other types of loosely-enforced legislation, Oregon politicians and users are concerned that a similar scrutiny will be placed on those who legally partake in this substance within the Oregon state borders. In order to protect the rights of its citizens, the bi-partisan Oregon marijuana committee has proposed a new bill (Bill 863) to protect the names, birthdates, driver’s license numbers and/or any other identifying information of Oregon users should a federal crackdown occur. Having passed in the state senate, the bill is on its way to the state House for further consideration. For more on the story, look to KATU 2.
