Paul Stanford on petition drive for Oregon Cannibis Tax Act 2012
Will Oregon be the first state to end the prohibition of cannabis? Host Stephanie Potter speaks with Paul Stanford, Chief Petitioner for Initiative Number 9 which is the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act 2012. This initiative would regulate the legal sale of marijuana to adults through state-licensed stores, allow adults to grow their own, license Oregon farmers to grow marijuana for state-licensed stores, and allow unlicensed Oregon farmers to grow cannabis hemp for fuel, fiber and food. Initiative organizers have until July 7, 2012 to gather 90,000 registered Oregon voters' signatures to qualify for the November 6, 2012 ballot.
