Oregonians will get to vote on legalization of recreational marijuana in November, if enough of the 145 thousand signatures last week are valid. The ballot measure sets the OLCC as the regulatory body. Officials say the OLCC isn’t quite ready for it.
OLCC Chairman, Robert Patridge says, “We lack the training, we lack the testing that may have to go hand-in-hand with this. We lack, frankly some of the legal obligations that would have to go with this.”
If the measure does pass, it would likely see some changes from the legislature.
