December 01, News » Local News. Although Measure 74, a proposed law to create a state-regulated medical marijuana dispensary system, was voted down last month, the medical pot movement has been increasingly active in Bend. Just this week, a medical marijuana club and a full-time medical marijuana clinic opened here in town. Central Oregon Alternative Therapy COAT is planning to open this week in a strip mall location at Division Street and will operate as a private medical marijuana club for cardholders only.
COAT co-organizer Chris Smith described the operation as a "patient-to-patient" interface where cardholders will be on hand to distribute small amounts of medical marijuana in return for a donation. The club requires a paid membership and only members will be allowed to receive marijuana.
This is the first organization of this kind in Deschutes County, but similar clubs exist in southern Oregon and the Portland area. As of October 1, the Oregon Department of Human Services reported that there were 1, registered cardholders in Deschutes County, giving it one of the highest cardholder per capita ratios of any county in the state. COAT is not, Smith says, a dispensary, where cardholders can purchase marijuana outright. Other costs like labor and transportation cannot be reimbursed.
The total amount of usable marijuana that a medical cardholder can possess is 24 ounces, which is the maximum that would be on hand at COAT at any time, says Smith.

Mothers Against Misuse and Abuse MAMA has been holding clinics in rented locations in Bend for some time, but now runs Bend's first five-day-a-week permanent medical marijuana clinic. MAMA Executive Director Sandee Burbank said the clinic is open for appointments during which individuals can speak with a doctor and have their medical records reviewed to determine if their condition qualifies for medical marijuana.
The clinic will also educate existing cardholders and others about OMMP laws and provide instruction on how to use marijuana other than by smoking it.
