Arizona Medical-Pot Cards to be Honored in Nevada

My 24 year old stepson, Cameron, has been designing hydroponics systems for several years. Actually this is an "aeroponics system." His target market, he states, are people with medical marijuana cards – legal here in Oregon and also in California (where he lives).

Well, I guess he is on to something special because his latest aeroponics invention, the "Clone and Grow 12" has made the cover of High Times Magazine.

I have to be honest and say that I have mixed feelings about this. Margo and I do not smoke pot (although we both did when we were younger), and as prescribing doctor in Oregon I have mixed feelings about medical marijuana cards (because even though it is very helpful to some individuals there is a tremendous amount of abuse in the system – what I mean is that there are a lot of people with no bona fide medical condition that might be helped by pot who have medical marijuana cards just so they can smoke it legally).

Whatever!

But beyond all that we have to admit that he has really designed a system that has some merit if he made the cover of High Times!!! So we are proud.

HA HA – this is the first time we have ever gone into a store and bought a copy of High Times, isn’t life strange?
