(MOLALLA, Ore.) – My text comes partially from the Oregonian editorial June 11, 2011 Re Marijuana: “Seeing Through the Smoke” which again impugns or questions the efficacy of Medical Marijuana. It also seems to hail a U.S. Attorney in Portland for his “knowledge” of Marijuana as medicine in Oregon. He is funny/strange in his lack of knowledge. Both he and the Oregonian made many errors of fact and innuendo.

First of all they have few and mostly meaningless clues about Marijuana dispensaries. Oregon has about 35,000 or so Medical Cardholders and Caregiver Cardholders. All can grow and carry Marijuana. Friend-to-friend exchanges are the rule and cash is frequently exchanged (it costs money to grow Pot). Clubs are the users answer to the foolishly ambiguous laws. Even Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Shrunk says so!

Many say all Marijuana use is Medical (except high school kids). For some it is like coffee, a mild medical stimulant or wine, a mild medical tranquilizer.
