Here in Oregon, Measure 92 states the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program would not be affected. Some cities are still drafting laws for medical marijuana dispensaries. 

Man gets 5 ½ years in S. Ore. police confrontation
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — An Idaho fugitive shot and wounded by officers after a pursuit last March in southern Oregon has been sentenced to 5 ½ years in prison.

The Jackson County, Oregon, district attorney's office said Wednesday that 29-year-old Wayne Pearson pleaded no contest to multiple charges, including attempted assault, attempting to elude and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

District Attorney Beth Heckert has said four law enforcement officers opened fire on March 6 after Pearson struck a police vehicle with a stolen truck he was driving, then drove toward two officers who were attempting to set up a spike strip to stop the truck.

Pearson's head was grazed. A woman traveling with Pearson was hit several times but survived.

An Oregon grand jury investigation later cleared all four officers involved, ruling the shooting justified.

At the time, Pearson had been sought on burglary and grand theft warrants out of Bonneville County, Idaho.
