Medical Marijuana Users Double in OR

Medical Marijuana Users Double
January 24, 2005
kval.com

Nearly 10,000 Oregonians are eligible to use marijuana for medicinal purposes, double the number from just two years ago.

Oregon is one of ten states with a medical marijuana law. The fee-based program has grown so fast that it built up a cash surplus of nearly $1 million last year. To reduce the surplus, officials cut the annual fee for a medical marijuana card from $150 to $55. For Oregon Health Plan patients, the fee dropped to $20.

More than 1,500 doctors have signed for the cards, verifying that their patients have a "debilitating condition" or a symptom such as nausea or severe pain.

But just 10 doctors account for two-thirds of all card requests, leading some to suspect the program is being abused.

Defenders of medical marijuana say the increase reflects a growing acceptance of marijuana as an alternative to mainstream medicine.

Since 1996, ten states have legalized medical marijuana use: AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ME, NV, OR, VT and WA. Eight of the ten did so through the initiative process, Hawaii's law was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor in 2000, and Vermont's was enacted by the legislature and passed into law without the governor's signature in May 2004.

I know MT also passed a medical marijuana law last year, and I believe MD did as well. So, actually thats jumps the number of states up to 12.

That's right.
Oregon also has legal doctor-assisted suicide, I believe the Netherlands is the only other place in the civilized world where it is also legal.
Oregon is very forward thinking in some areas.
A surplus of money from a medical cannabis program? What use would that be?(laying on the sarcasm as thick as possible)
