It’s time that Oregon legislators get serious about the state’s out-of-control medical marijuana situation and reverse the trend that is getting worse in a hurry.
As the Oregonian pointed out in an editorial this week, the rate of marijuana use by adult Oregonians is 50% above the national rate. And now, there is proposed legislation that would weaken workplace rules regarding those who hold medical marijuana cards.
Let’s not wait until we see more traffic fatalities and workplace injuries caused by those who obtain medical marijuana cards under false pretenses.
This is a problem that is fixable, so let’s fix it now.Medical marijuana abuse is a runaway train if left untouched.
