Time to move to Oregon

At least there is some rationality and intelligence left. I know it isn't much, but they are trying.

"Shawn Flury, 44, and David Thomas Howard, 51, this month joined the ranks of growers convicted on felony drug charges for violating the state's medical marijuana law at their Clackamas County greenhouse.

"'The whole thing is a morass,' Clackamas County Circuit Judge Ronald Thom said of the medical marijuana law during the trial.

As the men are sentenced today, the state is preparing to change the law so it is easier for police to interpret and harder for criminals to exploit.

More than 11,000 Oregonians hold state registration cards that authorize them to use medical marijuana. They have the option of growing their marijuana or designating someone else, called a "caregiver," to do it for them.

State lawmakers tried unsuccessfully to modify the law during the 2003 Legislature. They agreed to some changes in the waning hours of the 2005 session, approving Senate Bill 1085 with bipartisan support. The changes take effect Jan. 1."
