Soon Oregon Will Not Allow Out Of State Medical Marijuana Patients Or Growers

For awhile now Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) has had a distinction that no other state’s medical marijuana program has – it allows non-Oregon residents to become a patient or grower in the program. There are multiple states that recognize out of state medical marijuana cards, but Oregon will allow you to become a patient in Oregon (but has never recognized out of state medical marijuana cards). There are not a lot of out of state patients in the OMMP, but there are some nonetheless. Per Oregon Live:

Beginning Jan. 1, the Oregon Health Authority will stop issuing cards to patients without Oregon addresses. The rule is a response to a law passed this year by the Legislature requiring in-state residency.

Medical marijuana growers, who supply the dispensary market as well as individual patients, will also fall under new residency requirements. Starting July 1, new medical marijuana growers have had to demonstrate that they’ve lived in Oregon for two years.

According to the latest Oregon Health Authority data, about 71,000 people are registered as patients; about 1,900 have addresses outside of Oregon. The bulk of patients living outside of Oregon come from California, Idaho and Washington, according to state statistics. The list includes, famously, the singer Willie Nelson.

Drone Deliveries are Making Cannabis Rain from the Heavens

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, August, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Drones are becoming a hot topic in the news lately, and it seems as if everyone is trying to slice themselves a piece of sky pie. Amazon has considered using drones to deliver packages via Prime Air, and North Dakota just passed a law that would allow police forces to use drones armed with non-lethal weapons such as stun guns and beanbag rounds. Not to be outpaced, the cannabis industry is also getting into the drone game.


A San Francisco-based startup called Trees Delivery wants to use drones to deliver its subscription-modeled bud, extract, or "beginner" boxes to its eager customers. Unfortunately, the Federal Aviation Administration has yet to come on board with the idea of Amazon dropping packages out of the sky, let alone Trees Delivery parachuting bundles of cannabis to outstretched hands. Furthermore, the potential to rob a cannabis delivery drone seems all-too easy.

Has there ever been a successful drone delivery of cannabis? Well, earlier this month a drone was caught delivering heroin, cannabis, and tobacco to an Ohio prison yard. A brawl broke out as inmates fought over the bounty, but instead of sneaking some drugs into their jumpsuits, they got pepper-sprayed, strip-searched, and nine prisoners were placed in solitary confinement. Maybe the sender should try pigeons next time (or not, as we all know how well that tends to turn out).

Marijuana Use May Lower Sperm Counts 'Quite a Lot'

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

Smoking marijuana more than once a week may lower men's sperm counts by about a third, according to a new study.

Researchers found that the men in the study who smoked marijuana more than once a week had sperm counts that were 29 percent lower, on average, than those who did not smoke marijuana, or used the drug less frequently.

The researchers thought that amount of reduction in sperm count "was quite a lot," said study author Tina Kold Jensen, of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.

They also found that the sperm concentrations (which is measured slightly differently than sperm count) were 28 percent lower in the men who smoked marijuana more than once a week.

It is not clear why marijuana use may decrease a man's  sperm count and concentration, but it may have something to do with how THC — marijuana's psychoactive ingredient — interacts with certain receptors in the testes, the researchers said.
