Panel Approves New Restrictions for MMJ

An Oregon Senate special committee unanimously passed legislation on Monday imposing a variety of new restrictions on medical marijuana, a week after a joint committee overseeing the state's marijuana rules stalled on a similar measure.The Senate Special Committee on Implementing Measure 91 passed a proposal tightening regulations on the medical marijuana industry, such as limiting the number of plants growers can have, building an inventory tracking system for growers, processors and dispensaries, inspection requirements and an Oregon residency requirement.
Lawmakers say the lengthy set of new restrictions is necessary so the recreational program can pass muster with federal authorities.The move comes a week after an Oregon House-Senate committee in charge of implementing the state's new marijuana rules reached an impasse on a bill aimed at stemming the flow of pot to the black market.Committee members agreed on most issues except for one: the question of whether local governments could ban medical marijuana dispensaries or other pot facilities within their jurisdictions.Senate lawmakers on the joint committee wanted local governments to have the power to ban the dispensaries while still giving citizens the ability to gather signatures and put the issue to a ballot if they opposed the ban.But three House members on the committee opposed local governments being able to "opt out" of medical marijuana facilities, saying people who use marijuana for medical purposes need to have access to their treatments.The joint committee deadlocked on the issue, causing Senate President Peter Courtney to name the five senators who sat on the committee to a Senate-only special committee last week.Marijuana advocates said creation of the new panel was an extraordinary move in order to bypass House members' objections."That's problematic for the Measure 91 campaign, because under Measure 91 cities and counties can only ban state regulated marijuana facilities, marijuana businesses, with a vote of the people. And so now we have a conflict between medical marijuana and what's going to be legal under Measure 91," said Anthony Johnson, chief petitioner of Measure 91, the voter-approved initiative legalizing marijuana.The bill passed the committee on a 5-0 vote. It now heads to the Senate floor.Source: Associated Press (Wire) Author: Sheila V.

Measure 17-32
Two days ago our sheriff's Department put a levy to vote on by us, the people of Josephine County for the eighth time in the past twelve years the sheriff's department has ask us for a $1.80 per thousand dollars property tax increase to help fund their department.During the war on pot, the fed gave our sheriff 25 million per year to go after us. Now they get 0 from the fed and want us, the very people they have treated terribly for decades, to pick up the tab. Well, it ain't happening! For the eighth straight time we voted no.They once had 25 to 30 deputies running amok among us. Now they can only field two deputies in a county the size of Rhode Island. They cannot even make a house call and we like it this way, the dirty bass tards! We have beat them and they know it! This year my legal pot grow will have Kripple, Jeager, LA Confidential, Afgan/ Pakistani cross.I have 5 patients along with my personal stash. In all I have 40 plants. Each year I produce about from 5-10 pounds per plant. Depending on the strain. Each year I give away lots, pounds, to people who do not have access. Friends. Otherwise I sell to out of state buyers who come around about harvest time or sooner. I have people from back east who want to buy my whole crop at once. Say the can double their money back home. Money talks BS walks. Those pea brained pols in Salem think they can somehow cool this market? They need to lay off the caffeine, it is giving them undue hubris.

These self important blowhards have short memories. Remember back when we had Apache gun ships buzzing our homes? We had National Guardsmen in camouflage crawling through our back yards. They had asset forfeiture with 20, 15 even 20 year sentences for growing pot. People were being shot to death in their homes and family pets were routinely executed.People still grew! People grew as much as they could everywhere they could even under all these Draconian threats.Now? What remnants of prohibition left are laws and regulation with no teeth. These guys! They are really the out of touch with reality crowd. I am at grow central. Ground zero in the grow industry. You would not believe what you will see here. Hundreds of young people, out of town work crews Hundreds of gardens 98 plants per garden. This place is buzzing. We are seeing the signs of wealth everywhere. I am loling all over the place!
