Abstract or Summary
  • Over the past three years recreational cannabis legalization has emerged as a major policy issue in the United States. The novelty of this movement has created a gap in the state of literature focusing on the examination of cannabis legalization policy processes. Using a two-pronged Multiple Streams approach, this study first seeks to understand the experience, interaction, and power dynamics of participants in the policy process of Oregon’s cannabis legalization Measure 91 through the use of document analysis. Then, a purposive sample conducted with the aid of a web-based questionnaire targeted individuals in the states of Washington, Colorado, and Oregon who were involved in recent cannabis legalization measures in order to discover connections between occupation and influence in the policy conversation. However, findings in this section are extremely tentative, as the data collection process was wrought with issues. This paper speaks to the state of uncertainty that the institution of cannabis reform presents for states contemplating legalization, along with the vital roles of policy entrepreneurs or pressure groups, along with possible avenues and solutions for future research.
