The proposed state grass isn't what you think
Sen. Cliff Bentz, R-Ontario, has proposed a resolution to name basin wildrye the state grass.
Quite a shock. We thought the state grass was marijuana.
Large portions of Oregon are covered with basin wildrye, including the Columbia Plateau and the northeastern Blue Mountains.
But Oregon has a supply of unused grass on marijuana farms and store shelves that would last the state population for about six years, according to a recent study by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.?
