The Mail Tribune reports that 22-year-old Joshua Brewer of Medford has an Oregon medical marijuana card but was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years on probation for growing more marijuana than his card allowed.
Brewer said he is appealing the conviction. But he said the Jackson County Community Justice Department does not recognize medical marijuana as a legal treatment, even though it was prescribed by doctors to treat chronic pain from an injury.
Jackson County officials say marijuana is still listed as an illegal drug under federal law, and anyone on probation cannot violate any law.
