Federal marijuana decision clears way for Oregon hemp production
Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
A historic federal decision not to challenge marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington is also a green light for industrial hemp production in Oregon, advocates say.
Sen. Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, who co-sponsored a 2009 law legalizing hemp production that has since been on hold, said the new federal stance on marijuana should allow the state to start crafting rules on hemp.
"Sounds like we will be having a conversation with the Department of Agriculture and figuring out what the next steps are," said Prozanski.
And federal authorities appear unlikely to question Prozanski's interpretation of the Aug. 29 memo, written by the Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole, laying out the administration's new approach to state marijuana laws.
Amanda Marshall, the U.S. Attorney for Oregon and the state's highest ranking federal law enforcement official, told The Oregonian that her office would not interfere with hemp production in Oregon as long as the state creates "robust" regulatory controls and well-funded enforcement.
"Hemp is cannabis," Marshall said. "It's marijuana, and under federal law, it's exactly the same thing."

Paul Morrissey has put off medical treatments for about a year as he tries frantically to source the oil, which he says he was sold on after watching a video by Rick Simpson of Maccan, N.S., called “Run from the Cure.”
The cancer is spreading to his back and lymph nodes, but Morrissey said that’s because he could only source a small amount of the oil in Toronto and hasn’t obtained enough to cure the disease.
“I put off treatment for a year and knew it would get worse if I didn’t get the oil,” said Morrissey, who was willing to take the chance.
“This cancer battle, to me, is a battle of faith.”
He said he was also admitted to hospital in July with renal failure and his next step is to try to go to British Columbia to source some oil.
In the video, Simpson claims the marijuana oil is nature’s miracle and that he gave it away to about 5,000 people for free until running into legal barriers.
Simpson asserts medical, legal and political authorities and the pharmaceutical industry are ignoring the cancer epidemic and the potential of the oil.
Morrissey, on his way to Toronto inâ��December, stopped off in Maccan and said he spent five hours with Simpson and some others featured in the video, which suggests marijuana oil as a fix not only for cancer but various types of pain and a range of diseases such as glaucoma and diabetes. The video also provides instructions for making the oil.
“Four people in that house had cancer,” Morrissey said. “They cured themselves.”
