Two Oregon Counties May Vote to Quash Cannabis Bans

Two Oregon counties might rescind bans on marijuana production and sales — which are allowed by state law — during Oregon’s primary election on Tuesday.

The ballot measures are taking place in Klamath and Grant counties. Grant County Judge Scott Myers noted that the proponents of the measure named it 12-58, the same radio call sign used by some law enforcement bodies for narcotics activity.

Myers said last week that he would be more than surprised if it passes in the largely conservative county in eastern Oregon.

Shortly after Oregon voters decided to legalize marijuana, the state allowed cities and counties to ban marijuana production and sales where at least 55 percent of voters opposed legalization. Over 100 cities and counties have since “opted out,” according to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. [Read more at The Cannabist at The Denver Post]
