cannabisThe city of Eugene, Ore., held a Cannabis Cup at a medical clinic May 22, where card holders got to test various strains of cannabis to determine which one best helped their conditions. "We had 25 different patients try 18 different strands of cannabis and give us there perspective on how it helps with their debilitating diseases and symptoms," said organizer Jim Greig.

The Euegen Cannabis Cup was organized by the non-profit organization called Voter Power, formed in response to the 1997 attempt by the Oregon legislature to recriminalize personal quantities of cannabis.  Voter Power's executive director John Sajo and legal counsel Leland Berger helped draft the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act.
