House Bill 2064 passed the House of Representatives at the end of February with a vote of 98 to 0. Today, the measure passed the Senate with a unanimous 49 to 0 vote. This sends it to Governor Jay Inslee for consideration; Inslee has the option of signing it into law, allowing it to become law without his signature or vetoing it. Its highly unlikely Inslee would veto the measure, but if he did the legislature could override it with a two thirds vote.

Top Trump administration officials have said they will crack down on marijuana sales in states where recreational pot is legal, but Oregon officials and pot industry insiders say there`s no reason to panic.
Congressional protections for medical marijuana, President Trump`s deference to states` rights and the economic heft of the legal marijuana industry all bode well, they say.
