Call to action: Senate Bill 307
Currently, adults and patients who purchase cannabis in Oregon have nowhere to consume it legally unless they own their own home. This has led some otherwise well-intentioned users to consume openly on sidewalks or in public parks, which is, well illegal. SB 307 would establish a common-sense policy for social consumption. By allowing social consumption of cannabis by responsible adults within designated and licensed areas, SB 307 would reduce problems associated with public use.
Look up your local legislators HERE and contact them. CALL first and then send an email to let your representatives know that you support SB 307 and are encouraging them to advance this important bill. Right now, this bill is under consideration by the Marijuana Regulation committee, but they may not take a vote. Together we can become one of the first locations in the country to offer safe and legal cannabis consumption spaces. For more details PrismHouse PDX lays it out nicely- HERE. Photo by PrismHouse PDX.
