Law enforcement and media report that a series of raids were conducted in Oregon on medical marijuana facilities. Warrants were served in Medford and Eugene. The Executive Director of Southern Oregon NORML, Lori Duckworth, is reported to be one of those arrested.
Pro-reform legislation to improve and expand the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program is making its way through the state legislature:
The Marijuana Majority, a nonprofit group promoting reform of marijuana laws and legalization of adult social marijuana use, has a new project, the Marijuana Majority Mayors Initiative.
As many folks are already aware, Voter Power is in the process of restructuring itself and refocusing its efforts. The organization has returned to its political roots and is renewing its commitment to positive change and reform of the marijuana laws.
To Our Members:
You made our 420 Celebration a success!
We look forward to continuing to work with you as we move toward full legalization of adult social-use marijuana.
