Advocates Plan Ballot Measure for Cannabis Cafes
From Willamette Week:
Cannabis advocacy group the New Revenue Coalition wants Oregon lawmakers to expand the number of places where consumers can light up. Currently, Oregon law effectively restricts cannabis consumption to private residences—but many landlords don’t allow tenants to smoke in rented properties. Coalition spokesman Sam Chapman says his group will push lawmakers in 2019 to legalize, license and regulate cafes and lounges specifically dedicated to cannabis consumption. The group also plans to begin gathering signatures for a 2020 ballot measure as a backup plan.
