Marijuana Legalization Bill Gets Hearing in Oregon

Voters recently rejected a similar measure


SALEM—Marijuana would become legal, and the state would regulate and tax it under a bill under consideration in the Oregon Legislature.

House Bill 3371 would allow the production, processing and sale of marijuana and marijuana-infused products. Individuals 21 or older would be allowed to keep up to six mature marijuana plants and 24 ounces of marijuana at a time.

The Oregon Health Authority would be charged with licensing marijuana producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers.
