Come this November, voters in Oregon will have the chance to join Washington and Colorado as the third state to legalize marijuana.
According to the Statesman Journal, the New Oregon Approach initiative—which would allow residents to grow up to four marijuana plants and carry eight ounces of weed—has acquired enough signatures to earn a spot on ballots in November. If approved, legal marijuana sales would begin in January 2016 with taxes at $1.50 per gram and $35 per ounce, because the state has to get that green as well.
The Statesman Journal adds that the state voted 55-45 against legalization in 2012. Perhaps after analyzing the economic impact it's had on Colorado and Washington, it will reconsider.
