Colin Fodenvenzil reported on Measure 33 this morning. He talked with supporters and advocates then he interviewed the opposition by talking to head of the Oregon District Attorney's Association (Brad Berry?).
The head of the ODAA claimed that if Measure 33 passed, the provisions in the Measure allow sick people to have up to 6Lbs of Marijuana. Then he claimed the federal DEA 6Lbs is enough marijuana for a sick person to smoke 2 joints, 24 hours per day, every day for a year.
Math check = 2 x 24 x 365 = 17,520 joints
Gram check = 28.25 (grams/ounce) x 16 (ounces/LB) x 6 = 2712 grams
2712 grams / 17520 joints = .15 grams / joint or more than 6 joints per gram.
I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO COULD POSSIBLY MAKE A JOINT SO SMALL.
You might get two small joints out of a gram so 2712 grams would supply 5424 small joints = 15 joints per day. For a very ill person this would be less than one joint per waking hour.
THE GOVERNMENT IS AGAIN LIEING ABOUT POT and OPB is an accomplice to report such inaccuracies.
