Medical marijuana clinics monthly in Bend

Sunday, June 6, 2004
The Bend, Oregon

Many of the 8,975 patients now legally registered with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program report that marijuana works for them when other remedies have failed. Numerous patients state that marijuana does not have the negative side effects experienced by the use of some prescription drugs. Debilitating medical conditions that qualify for OMMP are:

(a) Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for immunodeficiency virus or acquired
immune deficiency syndrome, or treatment for these conditions;
(b) A medical condition or treatment for a medical condition that produces,
for a specific patient, one or more of the following:
(i) Cachexia;
(ii) Severe pain;
(iii) Severe nausea;
(iv) Seizures, including but not limited to seizures caused by epilepsy; or
(v) Persistent muscle spasms, including, but not limited to, spasms caused by multiple sclerosis.

Voter Power, the state’s largest medical marijuana advocacy group, will be holding medical marijuana clinics once a month in Bend, as well as Portland, Eugene and Grants Pass.
