Marijuana legalization still contentious in Oregon counties

In this Sept. 28, 2015, file photo, a cannabis bud is seen at Amazon Organics, a pot dispensary in Eugene, Ore.

House Bill 130, Cannabinoid Research, was sponsored by Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem.

This bill would not legalize medical marijuana, but would authorize research on cannabis extracts so doctors have enough information to feel comfortable prescribing it as medicine. It would allow for federally approved, institutional review boards to study the medical uses and risks of parts of the marijuana plant.
