It’s time to legalize and regulate common consumption cannabis businesses in Oregon!
Legalization in Oregon has created thousands of jobs and generated hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue, but we can do even better. By licensing common consumption businesses, Oregonians will have regulated establishments where adults can responsibly use cannabis while creating even more jobs, generating more revenue and providing more opportunity for small Oregon businesses to access new markets.
In addition to allowing licensed and regulated cannabis consumption cafe and lounge establishments for adults, this proposal will also legalize tours similar to those conducted by our state’s microbrewery and winery industry and allow licensed retail businesses to deliver to adults staying in hotels and into cities and counties that prohibit regulated cannabis businesses.
More importantly, too many Oregonians are without a safe place to legally consume due to restrictions placed upon their housing situation, an issue that disproportionately impacts the poor and communities of color. We need to accommodate Oregonians across all demographics and bring more equity into our system. Publicly accommodating responsible, adult cannabis consumers is great step forward for our state.
