Oregon Giving Medical Marijuana Edibles Company A Hard Time

Officials in Oregon Are Giving A Small Medical Marijuana Edibles Company A Hard Time


Not all medical marijuana patients want to necessarily smoke their marijuana. Edible marijuana products are favorable to many patients, and a healthier alternative from smoking. However, getting their hands on these edibles can sometimes be difficult.


In Oregon, Richard Nuckols, the owner of a new non-profit company called MaryJane’s Treats wants to change all of this. He has just applied for a business license in Medford, OR, to start a company that wants to make medical marijuana edibles such as granola bars, fudge, all-natural candies, gummy bears, cookies and brownies.


So far however, MaryJane’s Treats is not being treated with a warm welcome by the city of Medford. Commenting on the company’s application for a business license, which he is denying, Medford Police Chief Tim George said, "I think the real issue is this is a violation of federal law… Strike two is that it's a violation of Oregon medical marijuana laws." City Finance Director Allison Chan is also denying the application.


Nuckols however, seems to have a very solid legal plan for his company. His idea is to have medical marijuana patients bring in their own marijuana to his new kitchen. He would then have their treat of choice cooked and delivered to various medical marijuana centers. Since he is not actually providing the medical marijuana to patients, Nuckols insists he is not in violation of Oregon’s medical marijuana laws. "If the patients bring you the medication and you turn it into concentrate, and give it back to them, that's OK…. We have not (nor do we have any intention to be) engaged in unlawful activity," he said.


Our fingers are crossed for MaryJane’s Treats!

      Let's Be Blunt with Montel   Pepe Breton moved to the US from Mexico City at age 16. Not speaking any English when arriving in the United States, he practiced the language during high school classes and participated in acting courses. Determination and hard work allowed Pepe to graduate from high school early. He continued his education in college focusing on both marketing and business finance. Fully supporting himself and paying for school he worked numerous jobs that included cleaning houses, car detailing, gardening, window washing, retail, telemarketing, and restaurants. After college, he went into sales & stock trading. He got his start in the cannabis industry back in 2009, when he was awarded 1 of the first 5 cultivation licenses in Colorado and has since grown the business into a multi-state enterprise engaged in cultivation, retail, extraction, and branding.   https://youtube.com/watch?v=ZRdijPOokQ8

      Let's Be Blunt with Montel   Imagine sitting in a cell for years, decades, or even life, convicted of an activity that is no longer a crime, while thousands of others build intergenerational wealth doing exactly the same thing. That is the situation for over 40,000 cannabis prisoners face today in the US alone, while countless others languish in jails and prisons worldwide. The last prisoner project is a non-profit coalition of cannabis leaders, executives, and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. In this episode, Montel talks with Sarah Gerston, the Executive Director and General Counsel for LPP, and Evelyn LaChapelle, who was incarcerated for 5 years for a cannabis-related offense and now serves as a board member for LPP.
