Meeting Title: Governor’s Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse Programs
Oregon treats 60 thousand A&D clients per year, 23 DUII clients, of which only 10 are enrolled in the medical marijuana program.
Smashing success! Oregon (read:taxpayers) pay to treat drug addicts while at the same time licencing them to grow and smoke marijuana! Genius!
The meeting also talks about Oregon have a lot of IV drug users but they insist that the presence of needle exchange programs don't encourage needle use. Cause you know how the market works like that, readily available products are usually ignored... wait a minute...
