Leaders Meet Before Oregon Pot Vote
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The leadership of Oregon’s largest agencies has quietly convened high-level meetings to discuss how to deal with an upcoming marijuana legalization measure.
The legalization measure would touch every corner of state government, from the Oregon State Police to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
OLCC spokeswoman Christie Scott says the agencies are trying to prepare for quick changes should the measure pass in November.
The other agencies in attendance were the departments of agriculture, revenue, transportation and justice, and the Oregon Health Authority.
The “Yes on 91” campaign and its petitioning group New Approach Oregon raised at least $2.3 million by late August.
The opposition did not report a single contribution or dollar spent by the August deadline.
