Ore. man challenges medical marijuana denial

An Oregon man convicted on marijuana charges claims that courts are practicing medicine without a license by denying him access to medical marijuana while he’s on probation.

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.

    This kind of stuff irritates me.

    First thing there are laws. He should not have been charged for any crime as the Oregon Medical Marijuana Guidelines State That Law Enforcement Can Only Take What Is Over The Registered Amount.

    Second. He Is Not On Federal Probation So He Technically Would NOT Be Breaking Any Laws. I Guess The State Is Saying That The State Can Break Federal Laws And It Is Okay.

    Third. OMMP Should Have A Test That A Person Is Required To Take To Make Sure The Grower And Patients Know What The Guidelines Are. Hell You Have To Get A OLLC License Just To Serve Alcohol.

    I Hope You Win… Good Luck.. As You Will Need It.
