SALEM, Ore. - Oregon collected $60.2 million in taxes on recreational marijuana in 2016, the Oregon Department of Revenue announced Friday.

Oregon started collecting taxes on recreational marijuana sales in January 2016.

Last May, the Tax Foundation estimated that the U.S. misses out on $28 billion in potential tax revenue from marijuana.

Staff at Serenity Lane in Coburg say they're seeing an increase in people with what they call "Marijuana Use Disorder."

And there are concerns about driving under the influence of marijuana and how to accurately gauge a driver's level of intoxication.
