I don't think it goes into effect until the end of the year, but it seems to be so.

I also think it's only within Portland city limits though, will probably be a year or two before the rest of the state gets with the program.

I do hope so. I'm moving to the downtown area.

Congratulations!

Being from Las Vegas, eat our hearts out! This city will be the last city in the country to have it legalized! We're controlled by the oligarchic casino moguls in this city, they'd never allow it! Most people don't realize what an ultra-conservative city this is, beneath the glitter and neon!

perhaps Carson City will legalize it on a state level

So, are they perusing a Colorado type model up there extending this statewide and maybe sell it commercially? The city of Denver had legalized it a few years before the state of Colorado did.

Will smoking pot be covered by the same laws as smoking cigarettes (in public places)?

I sure hope so.

Well yes, that's just common sense, just as public intoxication and drinking laws are as well.

Common sense, huh? Sometimes that seems to be at a premium.

Just as it is in California, there may not be local laws against it. But there are still federal laws against it.

PDs often receive federal subsidies. If they expect to continue receiving federal subsidies than they need to enforce federal laws.

One of my brothers as a police office in California. When any federal agent goes into that PD, and says for them to go on a dope raid, they go.
