Recreational Marijuana Qualifies for Oregon Ballot
Posted Jul 23 2014
This November, Oregon voters will get to decide whether they want to legalize and regulate recreational marijuana.
"Initiative Petition 53 has qualified for the November ballot," Tony Green, communications director for Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown, confirmed to The Huffington Post Tuesday.
The petition was submitted by New Approach Oregon, a Portland-based marijuana policy reform group, earlier this month. More than 87,000 signatures have been verified by Brown's office.
