It’s pot day in Oregon: Marijuana is now (generally) a legalized substance (under state law) in Oregon.

Will the world (at least in Oregon) change much? Probably not. For one thing, there aren’t at the moment many places where people can legally get marijuana; people who want it and want to stay within state law mostly are dependent on people who give some to them. (Sales won’t be legal for a while.) On the other hand, some celebratory giveaways are scheduled, mainly in the Portland area, for today.
