Second Marijuana Ballot Measure Defeated

SALEM, Ore. — There will not be a second marijuana legalization measure on Oregon’s ballot.

A judge upheld the Secretary of State’s decision that the measure did not have enough valid signatures. Measure 80, which proposes the legalization of pot with state regulations on cultivation and taxes, is on the ballot.

The failed measure would have ammended the state’s constitution to allow legal use by adults and state regulation for use by children and public safety, but it was mum on taxes. The deadline for getting measures on the ballot is Wednesday.
