Oregon voters could face multiple choices on pot

SALEM, Ore. — Paul Stanford, one of the nation’s leading marijuana legalization advocates, doesn’t only want Oregonians to have the right to smoke pot. He wants it written into the state constitution.
Stanford’s proposed constitutional amendment is one of several pot questions that may go to Oregon voters in November. Others are offering competing proposals for how the state would regulate and tax marijuana sales.
Legalization advocates are gearing up their campaigns after the Legislature declined to put a measure of its own on the ballot. They’ll have to gather tens of thousands of signatures by early July.
The groups behind the measures have received sizeable contributions from their backers and say they’re confident they’ll succeed.
