State Representative Peter Buckley is supporting the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act on the November ballot.
Also known as Measure 80, the act would make marijuana legal to people over the age of 21. It would also net more tax dollars in Oregon.
Reports say 90% of the proceeds will go into the state general fund, 7% for drug treatment programs, and 1% for drug education in public schools.
