Dr. Phillip Leveque Professor of Pharmacology Salem-News.com
A high school student interviews Dr. Leveque about his experience with marijuana/cannabis and legalization.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -Dear Dr. Leveque,
I am a sophomore at Lee's Summit North High School. I have contacted you today because we need to "interview" someone over our topic (my topic being the legalization of medicinal Marijuana) and my first choice was to talk to you.
The best way to start is at the beginning, so here is some background on Dr. Leveque, direct from the source.
13 Little Pot Plants May Set Religious Sacrament Standard for Oregon

This milestone cannabis case continues Thursday, December the 4th, at 3:45 at the Grant county courthouse in Canyon City, Oregon for defendants of the ONAC KM Sanctuary Garden Raid. The public is invited to attend.
(SALEM, Ore.) -“This case will liberate Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Ruderalis from prosecution once-and-for-all as they are not federally controlled substances. It will also ensure our civil rights, liberties and freedoms regarding Mother Earth's healing sacraments for all native born American peoples - hopefully even beyond those borders as well,” said Joy Graves, Sachem Healer of the Oklevueha Native American Church.
For authorities, it seems the question is whether the newly planted garden was medicinal, sacramental or simply another run-of-the-mill illegal marijuana grow.
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. it is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this county is closely connected with this."

Oregon`s Historic Election (We`re there, John Sinclair!)

Don't Bogart That Victory!
(SALEM, Ore.) -Bottom Lines for Oregon Election 2014? Oregon voters are pretty savvy on a lot of issues; Oregon is a one-party state; money still exercises a lot of speech in Oregon – and “Follow the Money” remains the best political advice; New Jersey, Illinois, Louisiana, Carl Hiaasen’s Florida...aren’t the only states with political soap operas and dubious ethics...
One cannot lead off about Oregon Election 2014 with anything other than the End of Prohibition (again). Whew. It’s been a long haul. It was the fourth try here. Pretty much the sole opposition came from the Oregon Sheriffs and the State Prosecuting Attorneys, who financed the No on Measure 91 campaign. Of course, they feared their Asset Seizure and Butts-in-Jail Beds scams coming to an end.
