An Oregon Cannabis Amendment may appear on the November 4, 2014 statewide ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute.[1]

Background

The 2012 elections proved to be groundbreaking for marijuana legalization support groups. Voters in Washington approved Initiative 502, thereby legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. Coloradans followed suit when they approved Amendment 64 during the same election. However, voters in Oregon rejected Measure 80, a similar, though slightly less stringent, marijuana legalization measure. Measure 80 would have allowed adults over the age of 21 to possess an unlimited supply of marijuana and given an industry-dominated board permission to regulate sales.[2]

Path to the ballot

Supporters must collect 87,213 valid signatures by July 3, 2014 in order to land the initiative on the ballot.

Supporters of the initiative began collecting signatures on April 17, 2014.[3]
