Light up! 4/20 is America`s Cannabis Holiday
Joy Graves with Bonnie King Salem-News.com
The Cannabis Community has a lot to ponder
(SALEM, Ore.) -On this, the sacred holiday of all Cannabis advocates and enthusiasts, when you take that first toke of the day, there's something you should ask yourself, and that is: Do you appreciate those that came before you? Do you know your fellow true-hearted brothers and sisters out here?
Seriously folks, this is much more than getting high. Not to be a buzz kill, but please consider those on the front lines...
As one of the last of the “old school” American doctors that truly cared, he has earned our due respect, and there’s no time like the present.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -Doctor Phillip Leveque has been out in front, leading the battle for the rights of patients for decades. Not only is Dr. Phil Leveque a tried and true friend of the Veterans, and of the sick, and the poor, but he embodies the all-important personal relationship and trust between doctor and patient.
His is a testament to a life well lived, a very “worthy” life, and the difference one person can make for others.

More growers or fewer patients? What's the strategy?
(SALEM, Ore.) -SB 936 is a measure created to make things simpler. It seems that goal was lost from the beginning.
While sensible regulations and oversight of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program is an honorable goal, SB 936 simply goes too far, costing too many patients their medicine and putting too much of a burden on medical providers.
