Why is the legislature wasting time and money worrying about tightening regulations on the medical MJ program, while cutting education budgets, when a tax and regulate bill would make the issues around medical MJ moot and provide much needed revenue? The time to enact a sensible tax and regulate measure in Oregon is now. All that is needed is for the legislature and the governor to act.
