Economists estimate eventual $210M payout from Oregon pot sales

As Oregon economists calculated their May revenue forecast, they had new figures to add in: marijuana taxes.

That may sound like a lot, but local officials reached by the Statesman Journal don’t expect the money to add significantly to their budgets.
