AG Bob Ferguson talks oil terminal, marijuana in meeting


The Vancouver Energy oil terminal, legal marijuana and this year’s legislative session were on the agenda Wednesday when Washington Attorney General met with The Columbian Editorial Board.

In the hour-long interview, Democrat Bob Ferguson talked about his strategy in suing the maker of Oxycontin, a commonly abused opioid, and what he sees as the next steps in what has become a national issue.

Ferguson was in Southwest Washington on Tuesday and Wednesday, speaking to groups and visiting the Vancouver office of the attorney general. Among other services, the Vancouver office offers mediation of consumer claims against retail businesses, a service which Ferguson said has more than doubled in the last few years.
