Oregon rolls out legal-pot plan far different from Washington's


PORTLAND — Matt Price sells 100 different kinds of edibles, tinctures, buds and other marijuana offerings to the patients who frequent Cannabliss, the medical dispensary he opened up in a historic brick building that once served as a fire station.

Unlike in Washington, Price's medical-marijuana business is licensed by the state, and all the pot he sells is subject to mandatory testing and labeling.

The 28-year-old entrepreneur says he's now ready for his next step — an expansion into recreational marijuana if Oregon voters pass a measure this fall that would legalize pot sales to anyone 21 years of age or older.

"We've had inspections," Price said, referring to medical-marijuana dispensaries. "We're already abiding by the laws. So being first up for recreational makes logical sense."
