    “As an Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer, people ask me a lot of ques­tions about Oregon's marijuana laws. Probably the most popular ques­tion concerns how much trouble you can get in for Unlawful Possession of Marijuana or Unlawful Manufacture of Marijuana.”

    “It is not something most of think about on a daily basis, but it is fascinating (and terrifying) that every Oregon citizen is subject to at least two completely different sets of crim­i­nal laws: (1) the crim­i­nal laws passed by the Oregon State Legislature and (2) the crim­i­nal laws passed by the United States Federal Govern­ment. . . .”
