A majority of Oregon voters and/or legislators (at some point) believed that cannabis use should be legal and they believed private firearm transfers should require background checks. Why don't we have a different/better process for private party transfers that doesn't involve Form 4473.

My conspiratorial senses are tingling.

Why! Because, as you say, at some point a majority of Oregon voters and/or legislators decided that private firearm transfers require background checks through FFLs, and federal law requires FFLs to utilize Form 4473.

In any event, possession of firearms by users of cannabis is a federal felony (18 U.S. Code § 922 (d)) and transfer to such persons by persons that know or have reasonable cause to believe the transferee is a user of cannabis is also a federal felony (18 U.S. Code § 922 (g)). So eliminating question 11e would be a trap for an unaware transferor.
