Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name &quot;Bubble Gum&quot; has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.</span></a></p> Soon Oregon Will Not Allow Out Of State Medical Marijuana Patients Or Growers http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2015/08/soon-oregon-will-not-allow-out-of-state-medical-marijuana-patients-or-growers <div class="wp-caption alignright" id="attachment_43324" style="margin: 0px 5px 5px; padding: 4px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; float: right; text-align: center; max-width: 100%; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.6000003814697px; width: 310px; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;"> <a href="http://cdn.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/oregon-marijuana4.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="oregon marijuana" class="wp-image-43324 size-medium" data-wp-pid="43324" src="http://cdn6.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/oregon-marijuana4-300x300.jpg" style="margin: 5px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); outline: 0px; max-width: 100%;" width="300" /></a> <p class="wp-caption-text" style="margin: 0px; padding: 6px 3px 2px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-style: italic; line-height: 16px;"> (image via Oregon Herald)</p> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.6000003814697px;"> For awhile now Oregon&rsquo;s Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) has had a distinction that no other state&rsquo;s medical marijuana program has &ndash; it allows non-Oregon residents to become a patient or grower in the program.
