Two Ways to Get Free Marijuana This Week

Oregon -- As of July 1, new Oregon laws go into effect making it legal for adults ages 21 and up to possess and use recreational marijuana. It’s legal to grow marijuana in the state—up to four plants per residence, out of public view—and share it with other of-age adults too.Applications for large-scale growers and retailers aren’t being accepted until early 2016, and no Oregon stores are expected to have marijuana for sale until the fall of 2016. For the time being, then, while recreational marijuana use is legal, people aren’t allowed to buy or sell it.
The odd situation—weed is legal, but there’s nowhere to buy it—has caused marijuana proponents and entrepreneurs to take the very welcomed step of simply giving samples away. The Oregonian reports that the Portland chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) will celebrate the momentous event by gathering on the west side of the Burnside Bridge at 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30. At midnight (therefore July 1), all 21+ adults with ID will be given free marijuana and cannabis seeds, courtesy of medical marijuana providers and activists.“While it becomes legal to possess and cultivate cannabis, there is no legal place in Oregon to buy marijuana itself or cannabis seeds and starts,” a statement from the group explains. “Portland NORML will educate the public and our partners will give away thousands of seeds and hundreds of pounds of marijuana this year so Washington State and the black market do not benefit from our new marijuana legality.”Later in the week, on Friday, July 3, an event called Weed the People is being held at the MCF Craft Brewing Systems facility in North Portland. Admission to the event isn’t free—advance tickets cost $40—but once visitors are inside, marijuana is indeed free to use on the premises or bring home for later enjoyment. Each attendee is welcomed to take as much as 7 grams, cultivated by a range of Oregon growers that have been producing the state’s supply of medicinal marijuana.“This is more than free weed,” organizers say on the event site. “This is more than vendors, food and vapes. This is history in the making!”Source: Time Magazine (US)Author: Brad Tuttle Published: June 29, 2015Copyright: 2015 Time Inc.Contact: letters time.comWebsite: -- Cannabis Archives

Multimillionaire Sheldon Adelson's ran a campaign against Amendment 2 by claiming that pot smokers were all gay.You can imagine how outraged we all are. Literally no one would have tried such stupid below - the - belt tactics even in the deepest days of the WoD. The move by Dade was in fact a simple admission that Miami could not support such wicked thinking.I do hope you will support us next year when Amendment 2 goes up for a vote. Racism such as this must be struck down. Jesus, they disenfranchised 2 million of us!

Probably good for tourism. Potentially it could generate billions because pot tourists will be less afraid. On your way to Jamaica? We have plenty of ways for you to spend your cash.

Miami is a very dirty, nasty and sick city that only promotes the values of the rich. I think it's good. Maybe some teenagers won't get raped and turn into hardened criminals forever trying to avenge their injustice. Maybe a few ten year old boys won't commit suicide because nobody loves them and they're going to jail. Hopefully fewer people will get shot. I think it's good.

Hope, thank you.
I know exactly how I come across sometimes. But my hate and contempt for the nasty class may hide how much I care for equality for all. I am very congenial with regular folks but I respond to people standing on my toes with an ugly attitude. We need to give each other space to be ourselves without undue concern for what the other guy is doing.

I'm glad the evildoers neither broke you, killed you, or broke up your marriage.You and your beloved Linda are very strong people. I'm thankful for that. You've needed to be.

Why should I respect judges?
Judges are elevated lawyers. Do you think lawyers suddenly aquire integrity the minute they have a gavel in their hand? Not bloody likely! In my Dear Wife Family they are professional people, doctors, lawyers judges , and the like. I have played, dined, and attended many high class outings with them. Off the job, good or bad they are regular people. No mystic at all. Some of them are mean spirited, some are downright goofy, all are just like everyone you know except for their degrees. Her entire family thinks of me (and her) as pioneers. They respect our struggle. So, I know class when I see it and I know trash when I see it!

The greatest irony in my life
Was when I was being sentenced by Judge Anne Aiken. She said "two years in prison and eight years probation. She said I need to pay my debt to society.The irony, society now needs to pay their debt to me. She is such a drama queen she advised my wife from the bench to move on with her life while I was in lock up.If you can feel people's energy, who they are, this woman is skank bait. Hilary was appointing women to the federal courts. Quality did not matter to her but quantity was everything. I hate Hilary for many other reasons also.My Dear Wife hated Skank bait for telling her to leave me while I was in prison. My Dear Wife is a good and classy lady and she thinks I am the bees knees, the cat'S pajamas! Skank bait is a low class trailer park queen with law degree.

So apparently it's a $100 fine. It's good news, we could do better. At least that's better than what the state law says.Sometimes I wish South Florida could separate itself from Florida. We're not the same!rchandar

They have done everything they can do to me
I am not causious about living out my garaunteed rights as a human being with inalienable rights. I hope I am their worst nightmare!I served during Vietnam, spent two years in federal lock-up , a total 11 years probation, federal and state. I was raided by 40 military equipped DEA, with 40 machine guns pointed at me and my Dear Wife.What can they do to me? I do not fear dieing, I do not fear their prisons, what then do they have on me? It is about the age old struggle for liberty, you stand up for it against all tynanny or you can duck and cover and hope they go away. They are softy bullies and the only way to vanquish a bully is to stand up to them.I am a hardened trooper, I do not fear anything!Love you Hope, thanks for caring!

Take care, Runruff. 
You're talking about apocalypse zombie type creatures, Reefer Madness stricken, rule of their law, even if it's a wrong and unjust law, lunatic fanatics. Many of them know how to read! They may be drooling and snarling at your words this very minute!They are capable of shocking and unbelievable atrocities that they carry out willingly, over the cannabis plant. And other plants, too... for the record.But you know that. Too well.I'm the timid, cautious guy, I can't help it... here to keep my bolder brethren, like you, reminded of the danger those potential killers pack daily... and nightly. Tread more cautiously through the danger that is still there. Please, be careful. I fear them harming you. I so want them to stop... but they hate us, and they go frickin nuts, and attack people and property, over some plants. They are still dangerous and they still have the power of hate and a licence to kill in their wallets.Be careful of them, my beloved friend.

Are you kidding?
At this time there are thousands of people growing here in So. Oregon!I know of and have seen scores of gardens with 98 plants. The fed can step in at 100 plants. A few growers, like me, grow huge plants 5- 10 pounds of manicured bud per plant. Then we make bho, shatter, and edibles out of the trim. It is a green gold rush here this year and guess what? No body, or I should say, few people pay any mind to any laws at all. What are they going to do, lock us all up? HA!

A cunning prohibitionist plan, no doubt.
"For the time being, then, while recreational marijuana use is legal, people aren’t allowed to buy or sell it."

Oh shucks! 
Cannabis has been the biggest cash crop in this state for about forty years. Now that it is qusi-legal we can't buy or sell it anymore? ( He snickered down his sleeve!)
