 Nearly 1 in 5 legal pot shops involved in stings sold to underage
Noelle Crombie
Nearly 20 percent of state-licensed marijuana retailers sold marijuana to underage shoppers in a recent series of undercover visits by regulators. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission sent people younger than 21 into 86 licensed stores across the state in December. Of those, 16 allowed underage people to purchase the drug. In each case, the underage volunteer carried their own government-issued identification. Steve Marks, executive director of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, called the results of the decoy operation ``unacceptable.`` Top state officials, includin....

 Billy Williams, don`t harsh our mellow: Editorial


The Oregonian Editorial Board
For several hours on Thursday, it seemed as if Oregon`s thriving marijuana industry was about to go up in smoke. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, long befuddled by pot, announced he was rescinding the hands-off policy toward marijuana prosecution adopted during the Obama Administration. Rather than maintain the truce that allowed pro-legalization states to commercialize marijuana, Sessions is now directing the U.S. Attorneys in each district to decide for themselves how aggressively to go after pot. The reaction from Oregon`s elected leaders, from Congress to the city ....

 Oregon leaders vow: We will protect state`s marijuana industry


Shane Dixon Kavanaugh
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday rescinded an Obama-era policy that had paved the way for a flourishing legalized marijuana industry, triggering a resounding backlash from Oregon`s top elected officials while sending shockwaves through the state`s cannabis marketplace. The U.S. Justice Department rollback, outlined in a three-paragraph memo by Sessions, a longstanding marijuana foe, will let federal prosecutors decide how aggressively to enforce federal marijuana law in states where pot is legal. In Oregon that authority rests with Billy J. Williams, who as the ....

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is rescinding an Obama-era directive that discouraged enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that had legalized the substance, according to people familiar with the decision. The move potentially paves the way for the federal government to crack down on the burgeoning pot industry though the precise impact remains to be seen. Marijuana already was illegal under U.S. law, even as federal prosecutors had been advised against bringing cases involving it in states that approved its use and sale. The people who described Sessionss decis....

 Sessions to rescind policy that allowed legal marijuana to flourish: sources


The Oregonian staff and wire reports
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is rescinding the Obama-era policy that had paved the way for legalized marijuana to flourish in states such as Oregon, two people with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press. Sessions will instead let federal prosecutors where pot is legal decide how aggressively to enforce federal marijuana law, the people said. The people familiar with the plan spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it before an announcement expected Thursday. The move by President Donald Trump`s attorney general likely w....

 2017: A NORML Year in America


Justin Strekal
n the wake of landmark cannabis victories in 2016, there was much momentum to build upon when state legislatures opened up at the beginning of 2017. With NORML chapters in nearly all 50 states, activists took the fight to the halls of state capitals and city councils from Florida to Washington State and everywhere in between. In all, lawmakers in 26 states have passed legislation to advance cannabis reform. Victories include: Nevada expediting the implementation of adult distribution of legal marijuana, becoming the first of the newly legal states to respect the will of th....
