Oregon lawmakers can’t find time for bill to legalize cannabis lounges

Proposals that couldn’t get a vote are essentially doomed for this session, although there are some legislative loopholes lawmakers can still use if they wanted to revive the bill later.

Democratic House Speaker Tina Kotek said most of the dead bills still needed more work before they could receive a vote. She added that there were simply “too many bills” introduced this year, which prevented lawmakers from effectively addressing them all. A plan that would have paved the way for the creation of cannabis lounges was among the measures that were scrapped.
