Oregonians smoke weed at a higher rate than Washington residents, and have large concentrations of pot shops in the biggest cities—especially Portland. A state economist says strong cannabis sales indicate that Oregon could collect $156 million in marijuana taxes over the next two years—but cautions that supply shortages and the fluctuating cost of weed make those projections "highly uncertain." The Oregon Office of Economic Analysis on Wednesday released its forecast for Oregon's recreational cannabis revenue. In the first year of recreational cannabis sales, Oregon closely tracks Colorado and outpaces the state of Washington when sales are adjusted for population size. The forecast, written by state economist Josh Lehner, lists four reasons for why Oregon has been able to sell marijuana at this rate: Oregonians smoke pot at a higher rate than Washington residents, burden pot with less taxes, sell that cheap weed to Washington consumers, and have large concentrations of pot shops in the biggest cities—especially Portland. Lehner also believes sales are "poised for strong growth," but not quite as strong as Colorado's second and third years. "Oregon's first year clos ...

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon says that Mayor Ted Wheeler's efforts to keep far-right protesters from holding more rallies in Portland is an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment. Wheeler this morning announced that he has asked the federal government to revoke permits for a June 4 "free speech" rally in downtown Portland, saying the city was raw and angry in the wake of two slayings on a MAX train Friday. The suspect in the killings is a white supremacist who has attended "alt-right" rallies in Portland. Wheeler's announcement today drew immediate criticism from civil-liberties advocates. Shortly before 2 pm this afternoon, the ACLU of Oregon released its statement, in a series of tweets. "The government cannot revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of the demonstrators," The ACLU said. "Period. "It may be tempting to shut down speech we disagree with," the statement continued, "but once we allow the government to decide what we can say, see, or hear, or who we can gather with, history shows us that the most marginalized will be disproportionately censored and punished for unpopular speech. "We are all free to reject and protest ...
