* Compassion Center Celebrates 10th Anniversary * Compassion Center, Oregon's oldest medical marijuana clinic, support and education nonprofit, celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year. The Center will hold an anniversary celebration from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on June 8, 2011 at their office, 2055 W. 12th Avenue in Eugene. The public is invited for refreshments, a free raffle and a book signing by Dru West, author of The Secrets of the West Coast Masters: Ultimate Techniques for Growing Medical Marijuana.  Compassion Center has grown along with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) which had about 2000 patients in 2002 and has nearly 40,000 today, with about 11% of them in Lane county.


According to Cheryl K. Smith, Executive Director, "Compassion Center serves about one-third of these local patients and others from around the state in medical clinics, teaches practical classes and provides free information over the phone and in person Monday through Thursday. Because many of our patients are disabled and low-income, we have a low income assistance program for doctor fees, and also provide information on other social service agencies. We recently started a Chronic Pain and Illness Support Group. We also have speakers who are available to medical clinics, disease organizations, universities and other groups that want to learn more about the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program and our services."


Preliminary results of a recent survey of Compassion Center patients show that they don't fit the stereotypes that many people have about medical marijuana patients. More than half are over the age of 50, the majority do not use marijuana recreationally, nearly as many medicate or vaporize their medical marijuana as smoke it, and they most commonly use it for severe pain. Mirroring results in California, we found that more than two-thirds of those responding to the survey have used medical marijuana to decrease or quit another substance, including pharmaceutical drugs, street drugs, alcohol and tobacco-making marijuana a viable harm reduction method. Final survey results will be available by the end of the month.

Compassion Center is a nonprofit corporation established to work for the proper implementation of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act by proving patients the opportunity to work with compassionate physicians for the treatment of their qualifying medical condition; by offering educational opportunities to patients, growers, caregivers, and to the general public; and by providing services at a reduced rate or free for patients in extreme need.
