“The seed has just been planted,” Rep. Margret Doherty, D-Tigard, said.

Oregon voters approved the sale and consumption of recreational marijuana 56 percent to 44 percent this November, but the ballot initiative’s 36 pages left a lot of the regulatory details up to the OLCC to figure out by January 2016.
