Crowds count down to legalization of marijuana in Oregon, then light up

PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Crowds counted down the minutes to midnight then lit up joints as smoking marijuana became legal in Oregon on Wednesday, part of a growing legalization movement spreading down the United States' west coast.

Hundreds gathered on the Burnside Bridge in downtown Portland and smoked under the glow of a neon city sign, marking the moment that the law allowing recreational use, backed by voters in November, came into effect.

The legislation opens the way for shops to sell marijuana by next year - though some lawmakers say they will still try to block retail outlets.

Similar legislation is already in force in Alaska and Washington State, reflecting a shifting legal landscape for a drug that remains illegal under federal law.

Representative Blumenauer Statement On Legalization Of Adult Use Of Marijuana In Oregon

Earl Blumenauer marijuanaToday, Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) released the following statement on the legalization of adult use of marijuana in Oregon on July 1.

“Tomorrow in Oregon we end the failed prohibition of marijuana and will very soon be regulating and taxing the adult use of marijuana along the supply chain from growth to consumption. For years, Oregon has been far ahead of the federal government on marijuana policy, and now again following the will of voters is one of the first to move ahead with the legalization.”

“Part of this leadership comes with asking the tough regulatory questions around issues such as safety, enforcement, packaging, research and education. Leaders from the state and local government as well as leaders within the emerging Oregon marijuana industry are well underway grappling with these questions. One thing is certain, however – this would all be much easier without the confusing patchwork of federal and state laws that trap businesses and state regulators in the middle. We are seeing shifts at the federal level to reconcile these differences, but have much more to do to. I will continue in my efforts to reform our outdated marijuana policy and level the playing field for businesses that follow state laws and create jobs. The federal government should be a partner in building systems that work at the state level, not an obstacle. We should start with allowing these legal marijuana businesses to have bank accounts and tax them fairly.”

Police Claim Biggest Pot Raid in Years Wasn't Really About Pot

Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

When helicopters, SWAT teams, and local police descended on California’s Emerald Triangle last week and yanked out nearly 100,000 pot plants, the notable absence of the DEA had some folks scratching their heads. 

According to the Times-Standard, the so-called “raid of the decade” was prompted by “evidence of massive water theft and other environmental violations.” 

The police, who said it was as much a water raid as a pot raid, claimed growers were illegally using some 500,000 gallons of water a day from the nearby Eel river, now stagnant and moss-ridden.

Mother Jones magazine pointed out that, as attitudes towards pot evolve, a shift in enforcement focus toward environmental issues is to be expected in northern California where many growers draw water from sensitive mountain streams and headwaters. 

However, Hezekiah Allen, director of the Emerald Growers Association, scoffs at the notion the raid was environmentally motivated. “This isn't about the environment; this is about business as usual,” noting that reservoirs at grow sites could be eco-friendly winter water storage sites to be used during the summer growing season. He also questioned the value of criminal raids just when the California Water Board is drafting a system of water-use permits and civil fines for pot farmers.
