PORTLAND, Oregon — On Thursday the Oregon legislature considered a bill to allow exporting marijuana to neighboring states where pot is also legal. Advocates of the bill say it might give Oregon a way to relieve its oversupply and create its own brand. However, the U.S. attorney for Oregon warned against it. But the bill may not open marijuana business between Oregon and California, Nevada and Washington, the three states near Oregon where it's legal. Others see it as a way to begin laying groundwork for when the federal government either decriminalizes marijuana or decides not to prosecute if pot-legal states export to each other. One advocate suggested going even further, since several countries, including Canada and Uruguay, have legalized marijuana. "I would like to see an amendment that would allow international agreements in this bill, if federal law allows, so Oregon can cash in immediately without having to wait for the next legislative session," Sarah Duff, spokeswoman for several pro-marijuana groups, said in testimony to the Senate judiciary committee. U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams told The Associated Press on Thursday that the bill does not change t ...

Oregon is producing twice as much cannabis as people are using, according to a new study from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. And Oregon has been overproducing marijuana for a while — leaving more than six years’ worth of supply sitting on shelves and at farms. On top of that, the Oregon secretary of state’s office just released an audit saying Oregon’s system for regulating marijuana needs to be strengthened. The oversupply of cannabis has driven down prices. Since recreational cannabis was legalized three years ago, prices have dropped from $10 a gram to less than $5 a gram. That may be good for consumers, but the worry is weak regulations plus a massive oversupply will fuel the black market. Imagine the farmer who spent all year growing her crop, only to learn it’s not worth much. That is, it’s not worth much in Oregon. There’s a big temptation to put the oversupply in the back of a truck, drive south to California or east to Idaho, and sell it to someone on a street corner. But the federal government has made it very clear that a thriving black market and illegal exports are likely to lead to a federal crackdown. The Trump administration has rescinded ea ...

Two police officers were "legally justified" in the deadly shooting of a parent at an Oregon middle school this month, officials said Thursday, as video of the fatal encounter was released.

Oregon’s land use regulators have temporarily expanded restrictions on solar arrays on high-value farmland over the objections of advocates who claim they’ll impede development. Solar facilities larger than 12 acres on high-value farmland have required conditional use permits in Oregon, but ambiguities in the regulatory language raised concerns among farm and conservation groups. For example, one project was approved without a permit last year because the county government determined it didn’t “preclude” agriculture use, since bees could still forage beneath the solar panels. In response to these concerns, the Land Conservation and Development Commission issued temporary rules clarifying that solar projects cannot “use, occupy or cover” more than 12 acres, regardless of whether they “preclude” farm uses. During a Jan. 24 meeting in Salem, Ore., the commission voted to approve additional provisions prohibiting most solar development on top-quality soils: those defined as Class I, Class II, prime and unique. However, the revised rules will allow solar facilities of up to 20 acres on such soils if the project includes a “farm use element” for the project’s duration, as ...

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On January 18, 2019, Washington County Judge Oscar Garcia found Kenneth Lijah Duyck guilty of Sexual Assault of an Animal and Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle. Duyck was sentenced to 20 months in prison by Judge Garcia. Deputy District Attorney Sabina Khachaturova prosecuted the case against Duyck. Detective Jim Berning began investigating the case after the Washington County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the owner of a horse stable located in Hillsboro. The owner suspected someone tampered with a horse in her barn and asked authorities to investigate. Detective Berning spoke with the owner and nearby neighbors and quickly developed Duyck as a person of interest in the case.
