5. LEGALIZES PRIVATE POSSESSION AND GROWING OF MARIJUANA FOR PERSONAL USE
QUESTION - Shall law forbid permits, licenses and criminal penalties for possessing or growing marijuana for personal use?

EXPLANATION - This measure would enact a new Oregon law. The law would bar subjecting persons 18 years or older to criminal penalties or to fines or forfeitures, or to permit or license requirements, for private possession or growing of marijuana solely for personal use. The law would create a defense to criminal charges under ORS 161.055. The measure provides that if a court declares part of the new law invalid, the rest of the law is unaffected.
