Portland's Marijuana Ordinance: FAQs & the Mythical Marijuana Arrest

Reports of my legalization
have been greatly exaggerated
On November 5, 2013 Portland voters overwhelmingly passed a city ordinance purporting to legalize possession use of up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana within the city. A lot of people have questions about how the Portland marijuana ordinance changes things and so, the city has posted some frequently asked questions to its website. Of course, the article is entitled "untitled document" and it's posted at a URL made up of meaningless words and numbers so there's pretty much no chance that anyone searching for the information will actually find it. To remedy that I've provided some of the highlights with a bit of my own information and commentary mixed in.
