Pro-marijuana group seeks to legalize marijuana in Oregon



SALEM, Ore. — A pro-marijuana group has filed an initiative that seeks to legalize pot in Oregon.

New Approach Oregon filed the measure on Friday with the secretary of state.

The group says it will first push for state lawmakers to refer the new measure to the November 2014 ballot.

New Approach Oregon’s measure would allow adults 21 and older to possess up to eight ounces of dried marijuana and four plants.

Sales would be regulated by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
