ommp oregon medical marijuana clinicAre You Looking To Learn More About Becoming A Patient In The OMMP?

I get asked all the time how to get a medical marijuana card in Oregon. Becoming a patient in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) can be a confusing process for many. If you fit this description, you should attend an event that my friends at Brightside PDX are putting on. Below is more information:

It’s become apparent that there are quite a few people in and around the Portland area that would like to obtain their Oregon Medical Marijuana card, but are not sure how to go about it.

Team Brightside is happy to announce that we will be hosting our first OMMP Card 101 presentation on Monday February 24th at 6pm in our waiting room. You do not have to have a card or be with someone who has a card to attend this event!

Topics of discussion will include, but are not limited to:

-What are the qualifying conditions for an OMMP card?
-What paperwork do I need to fill out?
-How do I obtain my medical records?
-How much will it cost?
-What am I allowed to possess/grow once I have my card?
-Can my employer find out that I am an OMMP patient?
-Do I have to be a resident of Oregon?
-How do I mail my application?
-How long does does the application process take?
-Can I travel with my medication?

We will also be sure to provide time at the end for any further questions that you may have.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to call us at 503-206-8726 or come on down to 1010 SE Powell and talk with us in person!

Check out this event on Facebook.

      Your website looks like an okay set up, but it’s awfully slow, isn’t it? And, not much traffic yet. Anyway, good luck!

        Wake up and use your new magic mod powers. There are about two dozen scammer posts that need to be taken down.

        • Sarijuana

          The mod thingy is new. Keep flagging them when you see those scammy posts. Perhaps the mod gets the flags?

        • painkills2

          I’m awake, wowFAD, I’ve just had other things to do. And I haven’t decided yet whether I want to be a temporary moderator or not. My insomnia has allowed me to “play” moderator so far on this website, but I really have other interests to pursue. You know, research to do, bad players to expose, Nestle toolhouse cookies to make. My plate is actually pretty full (and this evening, it smells like cookies).

          (By the way, I highly recommend the new dark chocolate chips from Nestle.)

          And now, ya’ll want me to learn a newly updated software program? While that is tempting, it is also going to be time consuming.

          Besides which, being a Moderator (with the label and all) seems like being a sort of… judge. I want to help people, not judge them. Well, I try not to be judgmental, but I guess everyone does it.

          Not only does a “Mod” label give me (I mean, my avatar) a little power, making me different than everyone else posting here, but I think it might cause me to filter my speech (and others to filter their speech when they are around me). And while some people might think it would be a good thing for me to pipe down… ever since I was recently banned over at a different cannabis forum, I have found that any limits (perceived or otherwise) on my freedom of speech is especially confining.

          Speaking of being banned, I found it surprising that these guys would offer me this kind of access to their website without even meeting me. I mean, I’ve met them via YouTube, so I have a little sense of who they are; but really, I could be anyone. I dunno, it just seems naïve to trust someone like that, even if I have been posting here for some time. (And it’s weird to talk about them like they’re not here.)

          Plus, if some kind of moderator position is going to be set up on this website, rules and procedures have to be created. Just saying “no hate speech” is really too general for most people. I mean, I know I have found things offensive where others have not. It’s a fine line, wouldn’t you agree?

          So, I’ve been thinking about all of this, and as I enjoy this freshly-made cookie, I’m beginning to think this isn’t really my kind of gig. I mean, it would be one thing if I was all stable and secure with my medicinal situation — but until I can better manage my pain, I’m thinking this all sounds a little too stressful for me.

          Anyway, I think this unpaid internship should be offered to someone… younger. So, wowFAD, I guess that leaves you. :D

    Since I did most of my learning online about how to become an MMJ cardholder (where information is not always reliable), I am thrilled to see an Oregon dispensary address this challenge. In this way. Great job, guys!

  • Roger Turner

    how do I get a Texas medical marijuana card or Percription ?

    • wowFAD

      Medical cannabis, unfortunately, is not legal in Texas. At least not yet.
      Write your state-level representatives and voice your support.

      • painkills2

        Hey, Jay, can you delete this post for me? Thanks.

  • Roger Turner

    I am a disabled person on medicade

    • Poop

      Youre fuckin retarded if your trying to buy weed online and shipping through fed ex

      • painkills2

        So, you think this guy is trolling for weed? I didn’t get that impression. (shrug)

      • Roger Turner

        yes I am a retarded person but I don’t have shit for brains

  • Roger Turner

    yes how do I get a medical marijuana card for Texas I am disabled person on medicaid

    • Sarijuana

      So sorry, Roger, but you can’t get one in Texas yet. You should voice your opinion about this to your political representatives. Or you could move, but I know that isn’t always a choice. Good luck and God bless you!

      • Roger Turner

        I truly thank you for a strait forward answer that sounds true and sencible

        • painkills2

          Hey, Roger, I moved from Houston, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to join this state’s medical cannabis program. Just so you know, the cost of living is about the same, I think.

          Unfortunately, this state’s program is not the best — but, as I’ve been told by those who think they know more than me, it’s better than the program in Texas. :)

          Let me know if you have any more questions.

          • Roger Turner

            well thanks I cant move right now I just had surgery on 25th so it will be some time before I can do anything much and I cannot afford to pay anyone to help me so I am kinda stuck here texas is ass backward about lots of things you lived here you know

          • painkills2

            I guess if I were you, I would try to find some clinical trials for medical cannabis that may come to your area. They usually advertise for these trials in local areas through TV ads, or maybe in something like the Greensheet. But you could also check out websites for all the different hospitals in your area, to see if you can find news there.

            The Texas Medical Center is huge, so maybe there is some research going on? Maybe for Sativex, which is one of big pharma’s first cannabis products?

            Anyway, sorry I couldn’t be of more help. As you can see, I gave up on Texas awhile ago. Because of the military style of the Texas Medical Board, I just don’t see medical cannabis coming to Texas anytime soon.

            The only other thing I can think of is if you live in or near a border town. You might be able to look for some patient groups in states that have medical marijuana, and maybe if you reach out to these groups, there will be some patients who would be willing to help you.

            Good luck, Roger. :)

          • Roger Turner

            I realy do thank you for all the input it is on the internet and news that support for legalization is 77 percent for medical and 49 for recreational 23 against recreational I know that this is just a poll but it is a start plus the governor was on the news saying he was in support because of the tax revenue reported in Colorado nothing like a few hundred million dollars to make a politician speak up and do an about face lol

          • Roger Turner

            I wanted to comment on your post photo its really wonderfull I like it very much

          • painkills2

            This is the view from my apartment complex :)

          • Roger Turner

            that is a really good view mine around here is rather bland but not a bad apt and set low rent keeps me with a roof and yes I understand your view of military style medical here surgery on 25th at 2pm at home on my own at 930am on 26th really taking good care of their dollars
