With just a few weeks left before Democratic voters select the next Attorney General (because Republicans couldn't find a single lawyer that wanted their nomination), the campaign has been fairly sleepy so far.
The two candidates - Dwight Holton and Ellen Rosenblum - debated on Friday before the Eugene City Club. The Register-Guard's Winston Ross has the rundown of the debate. It was mostly an amicable debate with some differences in priorities, but not really in positions.
Except one. Buried at the tail end of the R-G story was this news nugget:
Rosenblum said she supported the state’s medical marijuana law as one that “provides vulnerable citizens with the medicine they needed to cope with their diagnoses.”
But Holton said the law is actually “a train wreck, putting marijuana in the hands of people, kids, who are not using it for pain management purposes. Of 50,000 card holders, 30,000 got them from 10 clinics. We’ve got a broken system.”
What do you think? Does Oregon's medical marijuana provide vulnerable citizens with medicine they need - or is it a "train wreck" and a "broken system"?
