I don't see why cannabis should be considered any different under the law than beer or wine. Science shows that cannabis can be less physically harmful than alcohol, and it is certainty presents less of a danger to society. In the future, when the political climate has moved past the stigma of cannabis, we will see it produced in the same way we now see beer, wine, coffee and tobacco cultivated as artisan products. Oregon would be the capital of what would equate to the "micro-brew" scene in beer. Oregon could be an amazing cannabis growing region, as certain areas are now prized for their grapes or coffee or fine cigar output. And that is not to mention the incredible economic potential of the hemp industry for a multitude of markets. Such a situation would be a major economic benefit for the state. I support full legalization of cannabis.
