Hemp now has something marijuana doesn’t: federal approval. A provision of the $867 billion farm bill Congress approved this week removes hemp from the list of federally controlled substances and treats the low-THC version of the cannabis plant like any other agricultural crop. If President Donald Trump signs the legislation as expected, it’s projected to rev up already-explosive growth in an industry that has a footprint in 23 states. The curious only have to look to Oregon to see the potential. Hemp production was effectively legalized here in 2015 as part of a pilot project authorized by that year’s farm bill. Since then, the number of licensed growers has climbed from 13 to 584, and hemp acreage has swelled from essentially zero to more than 11,000 acres, said Sunny Summers, the resident cannabis expert at the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The state’s hemp farmers are excited about their prospects, said Courtney Moran, a Portland lawyer who has long lobbied for legalization. “We’ve been living under prohibition for 81 years,” she said. Because it was early to the hemp market, Oregon has consistently been one of the top hemp-producing states in the country. In 20 ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – The Portland area and the Northwest has a strong windstorm warming, one of the strongest of the season so far.

City crews worked through the day to clear some storm drains but debris will likely still create a big problem with water pooling in streets. Drivers should slow down and remember not to drive through standing water without first checking its depth. Finally, check public service alerts for any changes due to the weather. ...

Legislation being drafted in Oregon could become the nation's most dramatic effort to address the housing shortages and economic and racial segregation caused by zoning restrictions. Rep. Tina Kotek (D-Portland), speaker of the Oregon House, is drafting legislation that would end single-family zoning in cities of 10,000 or more: "The state’s housing crisis requires a combination of bolder strategies." WW has learned that Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland) is drafting a proposal that would require cities larger than 10,000 people to allow up to four homes to be built on land currently zoned exclusively for single-family housing. "The state's housing crisis requires a combination of bolder strategies," says Kotek in a statement. "Oregon needs to build more units, and we must do so in a way that increases housing opportunity for more people. Allowing more diverse housing types in single family neighborhoods will increase housing choice and affordability, and that's a fight that I'm willing to take on." Kotek's proposal follows a similar move this month by Minneapolis, Minn., where city leaders have enacted a plan that will end single-family throughout that city—a ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - As heavy rains move into the Northwest beginning Sunday, Pacific Power reminds its customers and the public to take precautions to stay safe and comfortable. “We work hard to prevent outages, but heavy rain and wind make it difficult to predict when and where an outage will happen,” said David Lucas, vice president of operations. “Our crews will be out there during the thick of it to help get the lights back on, but their safety and the safety of the public is our number one priority.” Pacific Power suggests these safety precautions: Stay away from all downed power lines and utility lines. Even if the lines are not sparking, they could be energized and extremely dangerous. Call 911 and report the outage to Pacific Power at 1-877-508-5088. This storm system may cause flooding. Be especially careful of any standing water or even soggy ground. A live down wire may seem to be a safe distance away, but is still extremely dangerous due to wet conditions. Don’t drive over downed power lines. “We encourage Pacific Power customers to text, call or notify us through our mobile app or website if they are experiencing an outage” said Barb Coughlin, vice president ...

Oregon officials have certified the ballot title for a proposal to let licensed medical professionals administer psilocybin, the main active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms, for therapeutic purposes. If approved by voters, the state would be the first in the U.S. to allow legal use of the substance, marking a major milestone in the drug policy reform movement. The title certification is the final step before the campaign is able to start collecting signatures to qualify the measure for the November 2020 ballot. In a newsletter announcing the certification on Monday, the Oregon Psilocybin Society (OPS) said it had to “fight for neutral and accurate wording” from the state attorney general’s office, but that the group is now “generally satisfied with the final wording” for the summary of the measure, which would also reduce criminal penalties for psilocybin-related offenses. There will be a short waiting period before the campaign can obtain the forms to collect signatures. But once they have them, it’ll be all hands on deck. The group needs to collect about 140,000 valid signatures from registered voters to qualify for the ballot. At this point it’s not clear where Oreg ...

Pinot noir is one of the finickiest grapes, but with proper nurturing it produces an amazing wine. Officials in Oregon and at a U.S. government agency are similarly finicky, and are stomping on a California winery’s claims that it makes an Oregon pinot. Copper Cane, a Napa Valley, California, winery sells more pinot noir made from Oregon grapes than anyone else, and often at a lower price. That has some Oregon winemakers, who call the California version a less elevated product, seeing red. Now, both the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and Oregon’s liquor agency have ruled that Copper Cane’s labels have been improperly referencing Oregon wine regions. The case recalls France’s mostly successful efforts to have only sparkling wine produced in its Champagne region called by that name. At stake is a multi-billion-dollar industry, and Oregon’s reputation for producing a delicate pinot noir in its cool, rainy climate, according to state Rep. David Gomberg and winemaker Jim Bernau, who have been sharply critical of Copper Cane. “Part of this is prestige and marketing,” Gomberg said. Grapes for Copper Cane’s pinot noirs are grown in three Oregon wine regions an ...
