Oregon petition signatures due Friday

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Sponsors of ballot measures have until Friday to submit the needed petition signatures to qualify for the Nov. 2 general election.
Oregon voters are likely to decide this fall whether to set up dispensaries for medical marijuana and set minimum terms for repeat felony sex offenders and drunken drivers.
That pair of measures may be joined by as many as 13 additional ballot initiatives.
Two years ago, 10 initiatives were submitted for the ballot. Two failed to qualify because of insufficient signatures.
