    I heard on the radio this morning that oregon's medicinal marijuana program is running a 1 million dollar surplus...

    to which they said, "it took them this long to figure out it would make money?"

    You must be an Oregon resident to be a registered patient in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP).

    The OMMP cannot supply you with seeds or starter plants, or give you advice on how to grow medical marijuana.

    lol

    so this just allows people to grow their own, or have one person grow for them?

    Yes. You can grow your own, but you can't have more than 2 plants I think. It's monitored very closely. If you aren't able to grow your own, you can specify a grower or the state will assign you one. That's what this guy does. He's a designated grower for 8 or 9 people and the state pays him like 6 or 700 per month per person. He's making out pretty good. Not to mention he gets to keep the surplus.

    I don't know all the specifics of the program. I think that a lot of the medical centers have "caregiver" programs which is probably what he's in.

    And no, you don't have to have cancer to get a MM card. It's mainly for the disabled and people with chronic pain, but I've heard of people with them that are just good friends with their doctor.
