Travel Guru Rick Steves Tours Oregon In Support Of Decriminalizing Marijuana


Public broadcasting host and guide book author, Rick Steves, is speaking in ten Oregon cities this week in support of Measure 91. The ballot measure would legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 and over. He's in Eugene Thursday night at 7:00 pm at the McDonald Theatre in downtown Eugene. Steves spoke with KLCC's Corinne Boyer.

The "No On 91" campaign, funded mostly by law enforcement groups, believes legalizing marijuana will give children easier access to the drug. In 2012, a similar measure to legalize pot in Oregon, failed with about 55% of voters opposing it.
