Disgruntled Portland-area Lyft and Uber drivers, backed by a powerful labor union, are planning a rally outside City Hall on Monday to air their frustrations over low pay, secrecy and gaps in insurance coverage at ride-hailing companies operating here. It's the latest volley in a longstanding war between the Oregon AFL-CIO and the ride-hailing giants who invaded Portland in 2014 in a major blow to the taxi industry. The AFL-CIO slowed Uber's entry into Portland for more than a year—before the company steamrolled labor and regulators by operating without permits. The new effort, called The Transportation Fairness campaign, seeks to convince city commissioners to create a new board dedicated to protecting Lyft and Uber drivers. A spokesperson for Oregon AFL-CIO, Russell Sanders, says the group has been in contact with "several hundred drivers." The complaints those drivers have, Sanders says, include long wait times to pick up passengers, driving long distances for short rides, getting negative ratings for not accepting rides, incurring cancellation fees, paying high insurance deductibles and only being insured while passengers are in the car. An Uber spokesman could n ...

A recent Sunday afternoon at the Bridge City Collective cannabis shop in North Portland saw a steady flow of customers. Little wonder: A gram of weed was selling for less than the price of a glass of wine. The $4 and $5 grams enticed Scotty Saunders, a 24-year-old sporting a gray hoodie, to spend $88 picking out new products to try with a friend. "We've definitely seen a huge drop in prices," he says. Across the wood-and-glass counter, Bridge City owner David Alport was less delighted. He says he's never sold marijuana this cheap before. "We have standard grams on the shelf at $4," Alport says. "Before, we didn't see a gram below $8." The scene at Bridge City Collective is playing out across the city and state. Three years into Oregon's era of recreational cannabis, the state is inundated with legal weed. It turns out Oregonians are good at growing cannabis—too good. In February, state officials announced that 1.1 million pounds of cannabis flower were logged in the state's database. If a million pounds sounds like a lot of pot, that's because it is: Last year, Oregonians smoked, vaped or otherwise consumed just under 340,000 pounds of legal bud. Yet stat ...
