Oregon legislators and cannabis growers want to make history by reforming the law and becoming the first state in the U.S. to export cannabis product to other states. The current legislation in question was put together by the Craft Cannabis Alliance who is working with certain legislators and hopes to begin exporting cannabis by 2021. While federal law currently prohibits the travel of cannabis across state lines, the legislation suggests a deal could be struck by the governor of Oregon and a receiving state. Some opponents of the legislation say the market should be more concerned about dealing with the current black market issues instead of expanding exports.
Wholesalers could ship across state lines so long as Oregon's governor had made a pact with the receiving state to allow those deliveries, according to draft language reviewed by the Statesman Journal.
