Medical Marijuana Advocates Meet Wednesday to Keep Dispensaries Open in Salem

Patients and dispensary owners say the Commissioner's meeting was kept very quiet, until now.

(SALEM) - medical marijuana dispensaries Last August, Governor Kitzhaber signed a Medical Marijuana dispensaries bill into law. House Bill 3460 was supported of Oregon’s Attorney General, Ellen Rosenblum.

Today, in a rather bizarre turn of events, we received word that the Marion County Commissioners are meeting at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning and will apparently be discussing the elimination of dispensaries in Salem, Oregon, which are presently operating "in the gray area" as they have for the last couple of years.

Marijuana: The Aphrodisiac

Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker" - Ogden Nash, 1971
Viva marijuana as an aphrodisiac!

(PORTLAND, OR) - Marijuana: The Aphrodisiac This has been the motto of young men ever since, but now the situation has changed with the estimated 40 million or so users of marijuana. Just forget about Spanish Fly.

The garbage that marijuana users "just want to get high" is just that --- garbage. From my experience with about 5,000 medical marijuana patients, getting "high" is an adverse effect of marijuana use. I know this to be a fact because on two occasions, I accidentally and unwittingly ate two marijuana infused cookies.

“President Obama's belated acknowledgement that cannabis has less a less harmful impact on its users than alcohol deserves applause. After all, with that one statement, he has shown more courage on the issue than any President since Jimmy Carter...

Marijuana: Universal Medical Use of an Ancient/Modern Panacea

It is well known that medical marijuana permits have lowered the use and costs of medical treatment for the indigent on welfare, etc. The increased legal use of medical marijuana in Colorado and Washington will definitely decrease medical costs.

(PORTLAND, OR) - Panacea - Greek Goddess of Healing The search for a medical panacea has been going on for more than a couple of thousand years. It comes from the Greek language Panakeia who actually was the Greek Goddess of Universal Healing.

In other words, not a real person. She was said to have a poultice or potion, which would heal all diseases. This sounds like marijuana/cannabis to me.

Curtis Keaton Story - Winning !!!

Today's court case proves that the people of California are not willing to convict legal patients that are protected by the law.

(SACRAMENTO) - Supporters of Curtis Keaton In Tehama County, Sheriffs deputies have been busy these past couple of years with a string of arrests all aimed at medical marijuana patients.

The person that responded to his ad was anything but a legal patient, rather a sheriff investigator Jeff Garrett.

Medical Marijuana: Best for Legal Medical Use

In use for 5,000 years, marijuana has endless health benefits, the ability to help people beat dangerous addictions, and it has never caused a death...

(PORTLAND, OR) - Marijuana in the sun For an article like this, it is important to point out that marijuana / cannabis has been used medically for at least 5,000 years and has never caused death by itself. If it is used together with other drugs acting on the brain, it can do so but never while it is used alone.

Another interesting medical fact is that before 1900, there were about 30 pharmaceuticals prescribed for about 100 different diseases. Today marijuana is used for these same diseases.

Marijuana: Legal Sales Explosion in Colorado and Ignorance Explosion in the New York Times

It was comforting to see that hundreds, if not thousands of media outlets jumped into the fray about Brooks' obvious arrogant ignorance over the subject he foolishly purports to know about.

(PORTLAND, OR) - David Brooks then and now. The week of January 1, to January 8, 2014, brought forward two of the most remarkable advances (?) about marijuana use and its detractors. Colorado's marijuana business is exploding far beyond their marijuana commissioners' feeble minds, to a million dollars worth a day.
