My Grandma on my Mom's side, can't stand the idea... The Grandma on my dad's side has already started to pack her bags! So, You let me know what you think about this matter. Are local authorities going to set up border road blocks, and conduct searches as us Idahoans come across the border?

Update at 11:52 p.m. ET: Oregon OKs Legalization
With nearly 65 percent of the vote tallied, Oregon is projected to have approved Measure 91 legalizing recreational use of pot, with nearly 54 percent in favor and 46 percent against.
The Oregon bill gives regulatory control of pot to the state's liquor control agency. It would also allow Oregon citizens to grow up to four plants at a time.
The state's legislative revenue office recently estimated that "in fiscal year 2017, the revenue from legal marijuana is expected to be $16.0 million with a lower range of $13.1 million and an upper range of $19.4 million."
"Marijuana legalization has been a long-standing issue in Oregon," Oregon Public Broadcasting reports. "In 1986, a failed measure first sought to legalize recreational pot. It was rejected by a large majority of voters."
