Senate Bill 854-A would allow the Oregon governor to negotiate with other states to export Oregon pot, but it would not actually go into effect unless the federal government changes its stance on the plant.
State Rep. Lynn Findley (R-Vale) opposed the bill saying it’s putting the cart before the horse.
“I believe we’re a little bit ahead of the game,” Findley said. “Last time I looked, the federal government was not moving in this direction, and they still classify it as a Class 1 drug.”
The bill now goes to Gov. Kate Brown for approval.
