Dr Oz: Medical Marijuana Tax
Doctor Oz’s show on Medical Marijuana spoke about the implication for states where they have legalized Medical Marijuana. Dr Oz asked Allen St Pierre, the Executive Director of the National Organization For The Reform of Marijuana Laws, if it is fair to say that states are bailing out their budgets on the ability to tax Medical Marijuana. Allen St. Pierre said that four states tax Medical Cannibis: Oregon, Colorado, Rhode Island and Maine. But Dr Oz asked the bigger question – could this be a reason why the legalization of Medical Marijuana grows? With our economic issues over the past several years, states are certainly attracted tot the idea of extra revenue. Also, here are links to recaps of all of the segments that Dr Oz did on Medical Marijuana today:

Dr Oz: Medical Marijuana California Policy Problems
Dr Oz asked if they have gone too far in California, because it is very easy to get it there. Each state after California who has legalized Medical Marijuana has made it tougher and more restrictive to get a Medical Marijuana Card. New Jersey is the antithesis of California, where it is currently virtually impossible to get Medical Marijuana. But the bottom line is that no state has copied what California has done, so perhaps they should consider changing their policies.
