State Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend, in a prepared statement Friday said federal authorities need to back off any intent to tamper with legal marijuana in Oregon.
“I hope the new President and Attorney General keep their hands off Oregon’s marijuana law,” Buehler stated in a news release. “They should respect the will of the voters and honor state’s rights. Federal intervention will only make a legal market a black market once again.”
