Marijuana Legalization Petition Reaches 50,000 Signatures

So those persistent pro-weed petition-wavers lurking on SE Hawthorne are getting somewhere. This week, the Campaign for Sensible Law Enforcement hit a mile marker in their push to legalize marijuana in the state: Collecting over 50,000 signatures on their petition for an amendment. The constitutional amendment would legalize personal use of marijuana for those 21 and over, provided their actions don't endanger children or public safety.

“We are on track to make the ballot in November. We are pleased that Oregon voters will have a chance to put an end to the expensive waste of law enforcement resources that marijuana prohibition requires and the criminal activity it causes,” said Chief Petitioner Robert Wolfe.

The measure needs about 116,000 valid signatures by July 6 to qualify for the November election, which Wolfe seems to see as an easy feat.
