To shrink a massive surplus of cannabis, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed into law a bill that would permit the state to enter into agreements to export marijuana to other states.

However, such cannabis exports currently can’t be accomplished because federal law bars the interstate shipment of marijuana. The federal government must first lift its MJ prohibition for Oregon’s export law to take effect.

In another attempt to curb Oregon’s marijuana-surplus problem, Brown earlier signed into law a measure that would enable state regulators to reject new cultivation business licenses.
