Pro-Marijuana Attorney General Elected in Oregon

 by lucy

Medical marijuana supporter Ellen Rosenblum has been elected Oregon Attorney General.  Her victory of anti-marijuana candidate Dwight Holton has marijuana activists breathing a sigh of relief, as her election will mean only positive change, or at the very worst no change, for the current medical marijuana landscape in Oregon.

Marijuana activists invested a great deal of time, money, and energy toward Rosenblum’s campaign.  The newly elected Attorney General has started that she will make marijuana enforcement a low priority during her time in office.

Rosenblum, a Democrat, is a retired state judge.  The only Attorney General candidates in the race were Democrats.

The Attorney General is the highest level of attorney in the state, acting as a counselor or legal advisor to their state agencies.  They also have the power to enforce state and federal laws to the extent that they deem appropriate.
