Although legalizing marijuana is not on Oregon’s statewide ballot for the first time in four election cycles, many metro area voters will decide the fate of 29 marijuana-related measures in the Nov. 8 general election.

Some voters will decide whether to keep current city bans on retail sales and related facilities.
