Oregonian: Hundreds of out-of-staters find comfort in obtaining Oregon medical marijuana cards

Oregon's largest newspaper, the Oregonian, did a nice article on out of state patients in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program. As one of those out of state patients, I was very pleased to contribute to this article.
Here's an excerpt:
Storck, the medical marijuana activist in Wisconsin, which doesn't have a medical marijuana program, carries his Oregon card with him wherever he goes even though it isn't likely to offer him much legal protection.
"To be able to have at least one state say, 'Yes, we accept that you are a patient,' means so much to me," he said. "It was worth the trip to be recognized as a patient. I have been fighting my whole entire adult life for my medicine. My own home state, where I was born, won't recognize that."
A map of Oregon hangs in his home, a reminder that his marijuana use is legal here.
"I am really thankful to Oregon," Storck said. "I am legal in every inch of that state and that is a beautiful thought for me."
