“The Oregon Health Authority released draft rules late Wednesday for medical-pot dispensaries to follow when they open as early as next week under a new law. Although medical marijuana will be available at the dispensaries, the agency wants to ban sweets containing the drug because they could be attractive to young people.”

This quote from the Associated Press sums up the Oregon State Legislature’s step backwards taken during the short session this year. Not only did their legalization effort get stuck in committee, but they passed an amended version of SB 1531 that allows lesser government entities, like cities and counties, to place a one-year moratorium on allowing dispensaries in their communities.
