The home secretary is adamant that the law change will not mean further marijuana liberalisation, but there are substantial financial forces working for exactly that outcome.

Only two things are clear in the Home Office move to allow access to cannabis for health reasons, you won’t be allowed to smoke a joint and the home secretary is adamant the new policy is not a step towards allowing access to cannabis for pleasure. But this still leaves a lot of issues unclear.

Medical marijuana cardholders decline in Oregon

Medical marijuana patients and growers in Josephine County and across the state are abandoning the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.

Long considered a source of Oregon’s black market, medical marijuana is fast falling victim to a combination of red tape and a different kind of market force: the convenience of recreational retail sales.

“Medical could officially have a gravestone,” said Kit Doyle, who formerly sold medical marijuana but switched to hemp products through his business, the Murphy Hemp Company.

The number of patients registered with the OMMP is half of what it was a year ago. Statewide it dropped 41 percent, from 59,137 to 34,892. In the county it was almost 50 percent - from 7,027 to 3,540.

As can be expected, both ornamental growers and suppliers are weighing the implications that cannabis legalization will have on their businesses, even if they aren’t directly pursuing production. During last month’s Canadian Greenhouse Conference, a number of industry suppliers commented on how the industry has and will change.
