SALEM, Oregon — Reports indicate that a thriving black market is taking advantage of the reported overproduction of marijuana for distribution in Oregon. On Thursday, the reporting agency said it has not lent effective oversight of growers and others in the industry, creating a thriving black market for weed. The review highlights complaints from US authorities that Oregon hasn't completely controlled its marijuana businesses, and that overproduction of marijuana is feeding a black market in states that haven't legalized it. Oregon was one of the first states to legalize medical pot in 1998, and in 2014 voters approved allowing citizens to smoke pot. Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen ordered the internal review after complaints from state and local law enforcement officials about lack of oversight of the pot industry. The health authority directs the state's Medical Marijuana Program, while the Liquor Control Commission regulates recreational pot. The review showed there were more than 20,000 grow sites, but only 58 inspections were carried out in 2017. The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program has far too few inspectors, while the tracking of growers and ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Oregon state Rep. Janelle Bynum (D) was canvassing her constituents in Clackamas, outside Portland, on Tuesday when a Clackamas County sheriff's deputy pulled up alongside, she told The Oregonian on Wednesday. The deputy told Bynum, who is black and running for a second term, that a woman had called to report her for apparently casing the neighborhood while on her phone. Bynum, 43, said she has knocked on probably 70,000 doors over her years of campaigning, and this was the first time someone has called the cops on her. She told The Oregonian that the deputy was courteous, professional, and agreed to take a selfie with her. Bynum got the deputy to call the woman who reported her, and she and the woman spoke. The woman, whose race Bynum said she did not know, was apologetic and said she called 911 out of concern for her neighborhood's safety. "It was just bizarre," Bynum told The Oregonian, adding she wished the lady had spoken to her instead of calling the police. "It boils down to people not knowing their neighbors and people having a sense of fear in their neighborhoods, which is kind of my job to help eradicate. But at the end of the day, it's important ...

The Oregon leader of a methamphetamine smuggling ring with ties to Mexican cartels has been sentenced to more than 15 years in federal prison. Daniel Ramirez, 43, of Hillsboro was arrested at his home in fall 2015 during a series of police raids to round up dozens of people tied to an operation that authorities said brought hundreds of pounds of methamphetamine into the area. It was "one of the largest takedowns of its kind here in Oregon," prosecutors said in court documents. Ramirez was the "focal point" of the large-scale trafficking operation based in Washington County and linked to cartels including Los Caballeros Templarios, according to the government's sentencing memo. He "admitted that he would receive five to 10 pounds of methamphetamine every two to three weeks from his suppliers in Mexico," the memo said. "He also claimed to be a daily user of methamphetamine and that he has a high tolerance." Ramirez would distribute the drugs to dealers throughout metro Portland and Salem, prosecutors said. Investigators identified more than 50 members of the organization, including 35 from Oregon, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Twenty-four people were indi ...
