When Will Marijuana Be Officially Legal In Massachusetts
Oregon Cities Setting Rules After Opting in to Legal Pot
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Some 30 counties and cities in Oregon approved some type of marijuana businesses in last week’s election, and officials in those communities now must establish rules for every step in the production and supply chain.
When voters legalized recreational marijuana statewide two years ago, the communities – from the cowboy town of Pendleton to Sweet Home in the Willamette Valley – opted out. But many switched it up this month, voting to allow at least some form of the pot industry, including medical marijuana.
“No one has done this in Oregon since liquor Prohibition,” said Scott Winkels, a lobbyist with the League of Oregon Cities. “This is the first time we’ve had to step in and develop and regulate a marketplace for a controlled substance since 1933.”

The Ultimate Prop 64 California Marijuana Legalization FAQ
Wait, so what happened?
California legalized marijuana. Proposition 64 passed by a margin of 56 percent to 44 percent.
You’re shitting me.
Nope. The sixth-largest economy in the world just legalized cannabis.
And it was called Proposition 64?
It was on the ballot in California along with the presidential election. The state passed medical marijuana in 1996. Six years ago, there was a valiant attempt to make it all legal. That initiative lost narrowly. Activists went back to the drawing board and put together what was intended to be a model of the form, the mother of all marijuana legalization initiatives. It was a tough fight, but attitudes toward marijuana are shifting so fast that, with the benefit of hindsight, it was clear the opposition never had a chance.
