OSU’s marijuana expert sounds off on new world of legalization

Seth Crawford, an Oregon State University sociology professor who has become an expert on marijuana, discusses the changes likely in Oregon now that the substance has been legalized for recreational use.

Seth Crawford sits down in the chair of his office in Ballard Hall on the Oregon State University campus. The shoes come off almost immediately — a Crawford trademark. Construction noise from the adjacent work on the Johnson Hall engineering building rattles through the window on a warm summer afternoon.

Crawford has three monitors on his desk, but he doesn’t seem to need them. All of the data seems to be in his head. He spits out facts and he spits them out fast.

Hackney Nursery looks to grow medicinal marijuana

George Hackney stands in the growing field of his business, Hackney Nursery. He is is trying to become northwest Florida's sole, state-approved provider of Charlotte's Web, a low THC strand of marijuana used to treat children who suffer from seizures.

Hackney Nursery, known for growing the famous hedges surrounding the Georgia Bulldogs’ Sanford Stadium in Athens, is now looking to add diversity to its growing selections.

This weed isn’t meant to get people high. In fact, you can’t even smoke the medicinal marijuana the Quincy-based grower will develop. On July 8, Hackney submitted an application to cultivate, process and distribute non-euphoric cannabis in the northwest region in Florida.

“So we are patiently, sometimes nervously, waiting for an answer from the state,” Daniel said. “Fingers crossed, toes crossed and legs crossed.”

Daniel and his team at Alternative Medicine Associates filed plans for a $25 million development project to convert the former Tyson plant in Buffalo into a medical marijuana production facility.
