As of June 11, 2010 there were 39,501 OMMP patients, over 28,000 individual growers, 20,339 patients with a caregiver, and 3,409 physicians who have recommended a patient for the OMMP. In Jackson and Josephine counties together, there are 5039 growers and nearly 6000 patients.
The OMMP is adding approximately 1000 new patients to the program every week, which means there are approximately 1500 total cardholders added every week.
The Oregon Medical Marijuana Law has been in effect for 11 years. The average age of patients on the program is 57 and the latest trend shows middle aged people getting their parents signed up for the OMMP, so the majority of patients are all grandma's and grandpa's who want a better quality of life that cannabis makes possible.
Cannabis is a relatively harmless substance that helps a wide variety of ailments and isn't toxic to the liver.
