Measure 74.

There are a few things that absolutely nobody wants. Cancer, for instance….or to be arrested.

Other things we’d all generally like to avoid include unsafe neighborhoods, an economy teetering on the brink of total implosion, and living our lives in excruciating pain.

At the intersection of all the above is the debate over medical marijuana. As with many societal conundrums, while most of us agree on the desired outcome, there are sometimes-fractious disagreements about how to get there…with opinions covering a wide range.

On this Sunday’s Outlook Portland (6:30am, on NW32 TV), we’ll discuss Measure 74, which is on the ballot for Oregonians this November.

The passage of Measure 74 would “…establish a supply system, as well as a low income assistance program for medical marijuana cardholders; establish a research program; grant limited state regulation authority; allow limited marijuana sales.”

We’ll speak with Anthony Johnson, Director of Oregon Green Free clinical services and co-author of Measure 74. We’ll also take a closer look at the history of medical marijuana, and talk with Troy Torgerson, a current medical marijuana patient.

The show will also feature another “Outlook Portland Editorial Reply”, brought to you by our marquee sponsor, Things From Another World. This week’s guest editorialist: Vince, from the graphic novel Walking Dead.

Outlook Portland, Sunday at 6:30am, only on NW32 TV…the home of Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, and Rick Emerson.

Next week: Katherine Schwarzenegger (daughter of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver) joins us to talk about her new book, and describes what it’s like to grow up in the Kennedy/Hollywood nexus.
