Oregon has so much weed it… [may] temporarily… [freeze] cannabis production

Over the last two years, Oregon’s legal cannabis industry has run into an unforeseen green rush snafu. No, the state’s teens aren’t all addicted to the devil’s lettuce, and local workers aren’t running heavy machinery into walls like prohibitionists might have predicted.

Senate voted [in April 2019] to advance the temporary licensing freeze by a margin of 18-10, advancing the legislation to the Oregon House of Representatives. After passing the legislation, Oregon Senator Michael Dembrow told the AP that the state currently has enough cannabis to last its residents up to six and a half years.
