Oregon has a similar provision allowing donations of homebrew to non-profits and actually allows homebrewers to deduct their donations.

Gary, could you steer me on where to find this language?  ORS or OARs? Thanks!

We've got all of the relevant statutes regarding homebrew in the Homebrewing Rights section of HomebrewersAssociation.org.  Oregon is at http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrewing-rights/statutes/Oregon/

Here's the relevant text:

Oregon statute Title 37
471.037 Homemade beer, wine and fermented fruit juice exemption from liquor laws. (1) As used in this section and ORS 471.268:

(B) “Financial consideration” does not mean any of the following:
...
(i) A tax deduction or credit for donating beer, wine or fermented fruit juice to a nonprofit organization.

There is an order from Holder to the DOJ and DEA of Washington and Colorado to spend tgeir resources other ways rather than overstep their State laws.

You got to know when to hold 'em & know when to fold 'em.
Well played Washington and Colorado.  Well played.

+1. Totally agree. Hopefully this is how things play out in the end.

I wouldn't recommend trying to claim that deduction on your federal tax return!  :)
