SIMPLE SOLUTION that would behoove OREGON to lead not follow here. Not big trees, but small bushes. Medical Marijuana represents many millions of dollars of taxable income that will produce many things. ONE - income for "highter" education - as our schools are hurting, and our next generations are not as smart as our country deserves. TWO - A renewable resource that saves what trees that are left can be carefully re-used.
THREE - Is anyone other than me tired of so many social ills around us caused by drunks. Drunk driving, abusive social behavior, and where I live near the University of Oregon - crime and property damage. The only drawback is the pharmaceutical industry will have some competition for a few of their expensive products.
This would take a different mind-set to realize that change is okay and not all drugs that are sold by corporations are good and natural ones are bad.
Somehow this seems like corporate spin. I understand that the DuPont chemical corporation is a principle reason for pot laws to help remove hemp competition for their new (at that time) nylon rope. Sigh...
Thanx for reading this far...
