OCTA 2010 Frequently Asked Questions

I don't use cannabis, so why should I care?

We know prohibition doesn't work. Public money is being spent on enforcing laws that do not reflect the times. Violent offenders are being released from prison early to make room for non-violent, cannabis-related offenses. Through enacting the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act (OCTA), the state will generate reliable annual income for education, health care and public safety (just to name few benefits) for all Oregonians.

OCTA is not just about state-sanctioned cannabis use. 90% of the funds generated through the sale of cannabis will go to the general fund, and the other 10% will go to drug education and treatment programs and industrial hemp promotion. Hemp will revolutionize our agricultural industry, job market and economy, with seemingly infinite potential to generate additional revenue as Oregon's new cash crop.

How much reliable, annual income can Oregon expect?

According to conservative estimates, state revenue will increase by at least $30 million, while other estimates place the revenue increase upward of $300 million*. In addition, Oregon will save over $61.5 million** Oregon will save by no longer enforcing out-of-date cannabis laws.

If cannabis use is a matter of personal freedom, why allow government regulation? An estimated 300,000 cannabis users reside in Oregon, in addition to the 23,000 registered medical marijuana cardholders***. In other words, 1/10 of Oregonians use cannabis that currently is controlled by the black market. OCTA will take the control out of the hands of the drug lords and into the hands of the people.

In addition, OCTA brings about government regulation regarding the sale and distribution of cannabis, not the growth and consumption. The law extends personal freedoms by giving people the choice to grow their own cannabis, as well as choosing who and where they purchase it.

What about children? OCTA stipulates that cannabis is only availabe to adults 21 years of age and older in state-sanctioned retail outlets. This will reduce the availability on cannabis of the streets and, therefore, to minors. A percentage of the revenue generated by OCTA goes to drug education programs in high schools, promoting responsible usage among legal adults.

* Estimates based upon revenue generated in California since the enactment of its Compassionate Use Act of 1996.

** Estimates based upon annual state law enforcement expenditures.

***Numbers taken from the 2000 United States Census.

Regulate Currently, the black market controls cannabis growth, sale and distribution, meaning anyone of any age can buy or sell it. Regulations puts Oregonians in control.

According to in-school survey data from 2007, 37.4% of eighth-graders, 69% of tenth-graders, and 83.9% of twelfth-graders report that cannabis is "easy to get." The regulation of the sale and distribution of cannabis will dramatically reduce those numbers.

According to the Oregon Healthy Teen Survey of 2007, cannabis use among Oregon teens has dropped 1/3 since the enactment of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act of 1998, showing that regulations works.

Reform Oregonians value personal freedom AND direct democracy. Hence, Oregon was the first state to consider, and subsequently pass, a Death with Dignity law. now, Oregon will be the first state to consider updating cannabis use laws to reflect the times.

Oregon spends $61.5 million on enforcing out-of-date cannabis laws, diverting policy energy away from violent and often repeat offenders.

Surveys conducted by the RAND Corps Public Safety and Justice in 2002, the American Journal of Psychiatry in 2006 and the National Research Council Committee for Data and Research for Policy on Illegal Drug in 2008 all conclude that cannabis is NOT a gateway drug: Of the 114,275,000 nationally reported cannabis users, only 2,685,000 (2%) went on to use cocaine and only 153000 (0.1%) went on to use heroin.

Revenue: Oregon's General Fund will receive between $30 million and $300 million annually, paying for education, health care, public safety and other publicly funded programs.

Industrial hemp has the power to revolutionize Oregon's ecology and economy through re-opening paper mills to produce hemp paper, creating clean fuel sources with hemp biodiesel and providing additional food sources with ground hemp protein. A 2000 report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture states that Americans purchased 35,000 pounds of Canadian hemp in 1999, and that number has certainly grown with hemp's popularity during the past eleven years.

Oregon has a rich history of taxing vices: alcohol, gambling and tobacco. It's time that Oregon stopped enforcing out-of-date prohibition-style laws regarding cannabis and tap into the ecological and economical possibilities of cannabis and hemp. "
