(Portland, OR)  --  A middle-school student from the Portland area is asking Oregon lawmakers to create stricter guidelines regarding marijuana-related advertising.  Fourteen-year-old Eddie Herzig tells KATU-TV that pot-related ads on billboards and banners may be appealing to minors.  Herzig says he has no scientific evidence of that happening, but he's noticed that such ads get attention from those who are too young to consume marijuana.  Herzig says he'd like to see marijuana advertising laws more closely aligned to those in the tobacco industry.
