The medicinal use of marijuana in Bend is getting more attention as two businesses open new locations. 1110 KBND's Dave Adams talks to Sandy Burbank, the Executive Director of Mother's Against Misuse and Abuse, otherwise known as “Mama's Marijuana.” Burbank and several other women started the MAMA organization, she says, to teach people how to use marijuana legally. “Sold people on the magic bullet , we have all this advertising about prescription drugs on TV. Prescription drugs kill over a 100,000 people a year.” Burbank says MAMA's Marijuana is a clinic in which a patient sees a doctor to be evaluated to see if the drug can benefit them. Then they teach Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Law. She would like to see the law changed so the use is regulated by the medical community and not by law enforcement. She speaks against what she calls "renegades"; that is the people sharing or selling pot in the name of medicinal relief with the eye on profit.    Burbank says she doesn't promote marijuana use, but favors decriminalizing it. MAMA's is located on Revere in Bend.
