Oregon voters have the chance to decide the state’s future on marijuana, gambling and commercial fishing, but the odds are stacked against any of those measures passing.

Polling has shown the state unwilling to regulate pot like alcohol.

Oregonians are also unlikely to approve a nontribal casino outside Portland. Backers of the measure stopped campaigning for it after polls showed it was unlikely to pass.

Also on the ballot is a measure that would ban use of gillnets by nontribal commercial fishermen on the Columbia River. The main backers of the measure have reversed their position, lessening the likelihood it will pass.
