Oregon Medical Marijuana Program at Risk with Over-Regulation

“The Oregon Health Authority is proposing to destroy the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program by over-regulation that will make criminals out of thousands of patients and the growers who provide for them." - John Sajo

(SALEM, Ore.) - Oregon Capitol Were Oregon voters boondoggled when they “legalized” marijuana? Some say "Yes". But not by those that brought it forward; no... it was a political move, well played. Three times within the text, it was said that Measure 91 would "retain current medical marijuana laws". Three times. It passed by a 12-point margin by Oregon voters.

Then, the Legislature apparently was overcome by the impression that the (adult and most likely literate) voters did not understand marijuana and they decided to implement changes, for the benefit of said naive adults.

Oregon Voters Fighting to Uphold The Color of the Law

Voters had no idea the new cannabis law would hurt patients directly.

(SALEM, Ore.) - Oregon marijuana When Oregonians responded en masse to allow recreational use of marijuana for adults 21+, they did not expect sick and dying patients to be negatively impacted.

Sadly, it has been an ongoing fight since the day Governor Brown signed it into law. The people of Oregon believed this was a good thing. Finally! The nonsensical prohibition of cannabis, an herb used for 5,000 years, was over in our fair state. Of course the challenge with the Federal government still rages on, but locally, we have made incredible headway. Or so we thought.
