SALEM — Oregonians are buying more legal pot than expected. That means they are also poised to pay more taxes on it — about $12.5 million more in the current budget than state economists projected several months ago. The average price of a gram of cannabis on the retail market has dropped from about $10 in late 2016 to just above $4 in mid-2018, according to state figures. But tax collections continue to grow. Altogether, Oregon consumers are projected to pay $176 million in state marijuana taxes during the current budget cycle, which ends in mid-2019. “Since Oregon levies its recreational marijuana tax based on the price of the product, the fact that actual tax collections have exceeded expectations is all the more impressive given the ongoing drop in prices,” state economists said in a revenue forecast report last week. “For every ounce sold, or every edible purchased, Oregon is receiving less tax revenue per item due to the price decline.” Wholesale prices have also decreased in that period, but less dramatically. Consumers are turning away from other sources, like the black market and medical marijuana, and toward recreational retail, state economists say. ...

University of Oregon scientists have found the first confirmed dinosaur bone in Oregon, Fox 12 Oregon reports. The toe bone belonged to a plant-eating, bipedal dinosaur known as an ornithopod and is estimated to date back 103 million years to a geological period that also gave rise to Tyrannosaurus Rex, the university said. “This bone was sitting out there with all the rocks. It was pretty surprising,” University of Oregon scientist Greg Retallack told the Eugene Register-Guard. “No excavation was needed. It was just sitting among the ammonites and coil fossils.” Retallack found it in eastern Oregon near the tiny town of Mitchell. The university said it is a rare find because the state was underwater for most of the dinosaur age, according to Fox 12. Retallack said the dinosaur, which was more than 20 feet long and weighed nearly a ton, likely died onshore and washed out to sea. The discovery was reported last week in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, a peer-review publication, according to reports. ...

On Thursday, after finishing a speech at the Oregon Health Forum in which he was heckled, Wheeler mumbled, “I can’t wait for the next 24 months to be over,” indicating he may not seek re-election. "If you know me, you know I mutter quite a bit,” Wheeler said in a statement issued later in the day. “Not one of my most redeeming qualities. I will make a decision next year with my family if I am running for re-election." In previous media interviews, Wheeler has complained about the job, calling it “no fun.” The comment came a day after the City Council rejected his proposal to expand his powers to regulate protests. At the same meeting, the first-term mayor criticized a half-dozen people who regularly attended the meetings and subjected Wheeler to taunts and jeers. Last month, Wheeler faced harsh criticism from a union that represents personnel from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding his handling of a 38-day protest in the city last summer by a group calling itself Occupy ICE. The National ICE Council sent letters to state Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking them to look into whether Wheeler committed m ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - On Saturday, November 17, 2018, during protest events near Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman Square Park, six people were arrested. The General Services Administration, the federal agency responsible for Terry Schrunk Plaza, approved a permit for a group to use the plaza today. As part of the General Services Administration permit, the permit holder had the authority to determine who could and could not enter the park while the permit was in effect. In preparation for today's permit, the Federal Protection Service erected fencing around the perimeter of Terry Schrunk Plaza. There was also a demonstration in Chapman Square today. Prior to today's events, PPB closed a portion of Chapman Square under Portland City Code 20.12.190(B). The area closure was an attempt to use an existing tool to facilitate a peaceful event while minimizing the opportunity for groups to clash violently. The intention of the closure of this portion provided a cushion between the two groups so differing opinions could be voiced, but the potential for violence reduced. During today's events, there were multiple assaults reported, as well as projectiles thrown at demonstrators and o ...
