Law enforcement officers say Oregon’s medical marijuana law is a train wreck. U.S. Attorney in Portland Dwight Holton says treatment providers have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of people seeking help. More than 50,000 people have medical marijuana cards, but fewer than 2000 use pot to control glaucoma,  cancer or other end stage illnesses. Most of them use marijuana to treat anxiety or pain and Holton says Oregonians might not consider that the reason they voted to approve medical marijuana.
