Supporters of Measure 91, which would make recreational marijuana legal in Oregon, have locked in $2.3 million in tv advertising. Oregon Live reports the ads feature the former head of the state’s Addictions and Mental Health Division, Richard Harris.
In the ad, Harris says passage of Measure 91, which would allow the state to sell and tax marijuana, would mean more money for drug treatment and prevention. According to Harris, marijuana doesn’t have the usual dependency features of heroin or alcohol abuse.
