While Oregon lawmakers consider several initiatives that would create legal protection for cannabis lounges, getting baked in public is still a no-go, and the state’s Indoor Clean Air Act prohibits smoking of any kind inside places of employment like bars, coffee shops, and hotels. This forces visitors staying in hotels or residents living in places that ban smoking to choose between breaking the law or taking on personal risk to consume legally purchased cannabis. The good news is that a number of social consumption workarounds are available. This means enjoying your green in a privately-zoned location is the name of the game. Oregon’s half-built cannabis infrastructure has inspired a growing set of entrepreneurs and activists to take matters into their own hands and develop a network of consumption sites for visitors and socially-inclined locals seeking a safe place to light up. Here’s our list of resources for anyone looking for a smoke spot away from home. Cannabis lounges operate as semi-private social clubs with varying approaches to membership enrollment. Some allow for walk-ins and others require an invite. Because they are privately zoned and owner-operated, l ...

SALEM, Oregon - Governor Kate Brown Friday said that Oregon's switch to a system that automatically registers voters a “phenomenal success.” She said the move led to a more diversified electorate in the state as well as an increase in voter registration among minorities. “Registration is a barrier to people participating in this process,” Brown said while delivering remarks at Politico’s “State Solutions Conference.” “Voting is a fundamental right of being a citizen, and people across the country should have the ability to access this fundamental right without barriers like registration,” she said. Brown also said the initiative helped Oregon, which once sat at the bottom of state rankings for the number of registered voters who were people of color, earn the second-highest ranking for the number of people of color registered to vote in the country. Brown said “the new voters under the automatic voter registration system … are less urban, they are less wealthy, and they are much more diverse than our typical voters that either register online or through the paper process.” The Oregon Democrat also partly credited her state’s voting system, which was implemented in ...

From http://thedrive.com: Yesterday, we reported on an emergency arrested landing made by an Oregon Air National Guard F-15C from the 142nd Fighter Wing. The jet had been in the air for some time before it made its way back to its home base at Portland International Airport and landed via catching the emergency cable with its tail hook on runway 28L. Now, The War Zone has learned that the aircraft in question was part of an alert training mission and was fully armed with live air-to-air missiles when it took off. During the emergency, the decision was made to fire off all of its armament into the Pacific Ocean before returning to land, an operation that is apparently quite rare in the F-15 community. The aircraft, which had the callsign "ROCK 42," a moniker associated directly with the alert mission, had a gear issue upon takeoff with one of its main gear failing to retract. Our sources close to the F-15 community have told us the particular issue with this aircraft's landing gear was of questionable severity. We won't go into any more detail on that aspect of the story at this time, but the diagnosis of the issue, or lack thereof, ended up prompting the F-15C to fly out ...
