"...He also sees it as a potential major source of tax income for the state, as well as an employment opportunity for Oregonians..."

LOL
He answers the question to his preceived problem.
IF there is one thing Southern Oregon bureaucrats can do better than anyone else, it's redistributing what I earn to others. Just look at our Utility Bill, once called our Water Bill.
So George and Winters, if ya can't lick 'em...TAX 'EM! After all, how else can you expect to continue receiving your fat PERS retirements?

i believe that the growers are getting rich off of patients,while patients suffer. i had my 6 plants stolen from me by my grower last year. he is the security of southern oregon norml, his name is lee bert jones, he also did the same thing to a friend of mine.jonzee,who is lee bert jones is also a board of director of sonorml. that place is always talking patients to let them find them a grower and guess what happens 80% of the patients get 0 of their 6 plants. sonorml sell patients medicine at street value prices, but they call it a donation. i have receipts that are clearly marked bud at &40. for 1?8th which is 3 and1/2 grams.and they will not give receipts anymore. growers are getting rich off of the patients medicine. most growers only give their patients 1and1/2 pounds for the whole year. that is not even 1 plants yeild.and beings you can only have 4 patients per tax lot how are the growers getting away with having hundreds of plants on their grow site,it is out of control and the growers disobeying the ommp by laws should be accountable for their wrong doing and taking advantage of the ommp organization

Soul ...?,
Who has hurt you?
You seem so damaged .. Was it a person who was a OMMP Patient?
Why else the Vitriolic Hateful Cry?
Soul, The people that I know who are on the program all have legitimate symptoms. I am choosing Cannabis to reduce the # of OPIATES that my Dr. keeps prescribing. So far I have not become addicted to the Oxycodone that you and Big Pharma seem to think that I should be taking. I am facing End Stage Liver Disease from Hep-C from a transfusion in 84 and because I choose an innocuous medicine I will be allowed to DIE by that same Medical Profession(?) that has killed me. Ironic isn't it?
If you could see the ease of pain on the face of my friend-------- and not understand - then my prayers go with you ....
We are here for such a short time - Lets have compassion - we can forgive.
Ps. To make your day , the Zinger Highs you are imagining go away when you have to use butter or tinctures or it takes such regular usage for the Medical effects that the slight euphoria is barely noticeable.

There are people... in places like Selma out on Deer Creek Road. They get property, they register to be a legal growsight. Do you realize how much of the product actually gets to the patient for their care? The rest this grower is exploiting the patiets in need, and are GREEDY making a profit, and satisfying their own drug addiction, and the persons who help harvest. Its WRONG. Get a job! If your gonna do it n be a care provider then do it righteously. Its disgusting. You are making money off of a system that needs more regulation, and protection to its consumers. Its NOT right!
