Into the Weeds (WWeek)
By AARON MESH | January 7, 2015
Ann Lininger has a lot of reading to inhale.
After only a year in the Oregon House, Lininger, a Lake Oswego Democrat, heads into a new legislative session Jan. 12 with a doozy of an assignment: She’s co-chairing the Legislature’s committee on marijuana.
The committee is charged with figuring out how to implement the sale of weed that voters made legal when they approved Measure 91 last fall.
This week, Lininger and her Salem colleagues start sifting through more than 50 bills dealing with legalized pot—everything from how weed is sold to driving while high to banning pot brownies.
