'Weed the people' celebrates marijuana legalization in Oregon

4 posts in this topic

PORTLAND, Ore., July 4 (UPI) -- Thousands gathered in downtown Portland Friday to celebrate Oregon's new legalization of marijuana for recreational use, at an event called "weed the people."

Voters approved Oregon Ballot Measure 91 in November, which legalizes recreational use and commercial sale of the plant. The law took effect Wednesday.

 

Prospective entrepreneurs and advocates attended Friday's rally -- exchanging samples, swapping business cards and sharing advice regarding marijuana use.

Businesses will be permitted to begin selling marijuana for non-medical use on Oct. 1. Oregon is just the fourth state in the nation to decriminalize pot -- following the enactment of similar laws in Washington, Colorado and Alaska. Washington, D.C., has also legalized recreational use of the drug.
