Oregon lawmakers have discovered an unexpected source of revenue — medical marijuana.
When Oregon began its medical marijuana program six years ago, officials didn’t expect it to grow so fast. Now, there are more than 10,400 registered patients who have produced a surplus of $1.1 million.
Hungry to balance Oregon’s lopsided budget, House legislators voted 49-10 last week to siphon $900,000 of that money to pay for other Human Services’ needs. The bill now moves to the Senate.
In a written response, the American Family Association denounced the entire state of Oregon and urged all ‘good Christians’ to move to Idaho, where the state plant is not an arm of Satan, but the more heavenly potato.
And yes, I made up the AFA response- but what is frightening is it sounds so damned realistic, particularly if you have listened to things like these anti-gay Christian phone company solicitations.
