PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden is one of a few lawmakers to propose a bill to make cannabis federally legal.

Beau Whitney, one of the nation’s leading experts on the economics of cannabis and an advocate for the industry, is based in Portland.

He joined Eye on Northwest Politics to discuss the state’s relationship with cannabis, if the federal legislation can pass and if it does, what that means for Oregon.
