In Salem, state lawmakers are looking to stash some extra funds by legalizing and taxing marijuana.
House bill 33-71 would allow the production, processing and sale of marijuana in Oregon.
Growers 21 years and older could keep up to 6 plants and 24 ounces of marijuana at a time... the same rules under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act.
Producers would be taxed $35 per ounce, which would be dispersed from a "cannabis tax account," to Oregon State Police, the General Fund, and schools.
The bill is scheduled for an April 2nd hearing.
