Is it OK to have medical marijuana at a police station?

McClain believes that the law is behind him with these one. He is going to attend a hearing next month for receiving a citation for illegally possessing marijuana. Court officials inside the Springfield Justice Center claimed that they have found marijuana and smoking paraphernalia when his backpack was searched. He further stated that Oregon’s medical marijuana law gives him the right to carry his own medication outside the confines of his home. "I feel I was complying with state regulations because I read the regulations about medical marijuana and that I was in compliance,” McClain said.

"If, according to the law, that it works," he said, "then I'm going to be exonerated." The Springfield Police disagrees with his claim. They firmly believe that the law clearly states that citizens, whether one is a medical patient or not, shouldn’t be carrying marijuana in public areas. Sgt. Tom Brochers even stated that if the description of the law is to be followed, then Mclain is guilty as charged. "Our position is that he unlawfully possessed marijuana in a public place," Borchers added. On April 22, it will be decided whether the court will favor McClain or the Springfield Police.

Springfield, Oregon, pays medical marijuana patient $7,500 settlement

Paul McClain, a medical marijuana user, has just received a settlement amounting to $7,500. In exchange, McClain withdrew from pressing charges against the city of Springfield. McCain warned earlier that he would be filing a complaint after he was given a citation by the local authorities for bringing cannabis inside the Springfield Justice Center. Last February of 2010, McCain has gone inside the courthouse to settle some traffic violation fines. His backpack was then thoroughly searched by officers of the court. The search yielded a “small amount” of marijuana. McCain presented his patient card and was later confirmed by the state registry that he is indeed a medical marijuana patient. Two police officers then ordered him to ingest his medication outside the court’s premises. Though instead of ingesting, McCain went outside, put away his marijuana and walked back inside the courthouse. He was then issued a ticket for marijuana possession. Police officer Brian Antone stated that according to Oregon’s medical marijuana law, registered patients should not be bringing their medication in public areas. This has prompted him to issue the ticket. It turned out that the Antone’s interpretation of the law was wrong.

Oregon’s state Senator, Floyd Prozanski, D Eugene, stated in writing that what the law forbids is the use and cultivation of marijuana openly. Springfield Municipal Court later cancelled the citation. Springfield Medical Marijuana case Dismissed Despite the settlement amount he received, Paul McClain would have liked that the case has been pushed through. Even the police officials of Springfield agree on this one. The dismissal of the case only retains the vagueness of the state’s medical marijuana law. "As it stands today, nothing has been resolved as far as we're concerned," remarked Rich Harrison, Captain of the Springfield Police Department. Since no modifications have been made, the Springfield police will continue on with the protocol they’ve been doing before the McClain incident.

At around 3:00 a.m. of Saturday, a shooting happened at an apartment located in the 900 block of Anderson Lane, Springfield. A 40 year-old victim was shot twice on the leg by 28 year-old male.

David Lewis, the unidentified shooter and the victim were out for a spree during that night. After they separated ways, the victim noticed that his house keys aren’t with him and realized that he left them the shooter’s car. He then decided to head get back to latter’s apartment to get his keys.
