Oregon's marijuana measure 80 failed to pass while two other states with legalization measures are set to pass. Washington and Colorado are set to be the first states in 75 years to legalize marijuana for sale, personal use and hemp production.
Highly publicized measures 82 and 83, that would have allowed private casinos in Oregon and construction of the Wood Village Grange failed to pass.
Unofficial results show Oregonians want to amend the constitution to prohibit real estate transfer taxes.
Measure 77 looks to pass allowing the Governor to allocate monies and declare the state a natural disaster which currently requires legislative action. The measure would change that.
15-115 Medford water/pool facility didn't pass.
$14.5 million dollars in bonds would have paid for demolition, construction or repairs for two of Medford's public swimming pools.
