Oregon may be among the pioneering states in legalizing marijuana, but there's still a major issue: pot is illegal under federal law. 

It is up to Congress to change the law, if members see fit. 

Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Portland) sees fit. 

Blumenauer is spending time in our neck of the woods, explaining his proposals for changing marijuana in federal law, and for getting more for Oregon out of federal farm policy. 

He calls in to talk about that and other work affecting Oregon on his agenda.
