On Tuesday, April 14th 2014 five panelists were brought together to discuss their experience with cannabis and its impact on Oregon’s economy. Sam Krause, a Mt. Hood political science major, founding member of MHCC’s chapter of the SSDP, and staff writer for The Advocate, organized the event with Founder Stephen Graves, political science instructor and Troublesome Movement adviser.
Besides Krause, the panel included Matthew Goldberg, a cannabis business lawyer from Lake Oswego; Mike Mullins, director of services for Portlandsterdam University and Stoney Girl Gardens; Jennifer Valley, founder of Stoney Girl Gardens; and Josh Jardine, a columnist who writes for the Portland Mercury newspaper’s Cannabuzz section.
The evening’s focus was clarification of Oregon’s Measure 91, its effect on the cannabis industry, and on federal versus state laws.
