Summary: Anti-Marijuana Candidate Dwight Holton Loses Election To Ellen Rosenblum | It wasn’t that long ago that the 2012 Oregon attorney general race was still in it’s infancy. Dwight Holton and Ellen Rosenblum had announced their candidacies for the Democratic Primary, and yet again the Oregon GOP failed to field a candidate. Admittedly, I didn’t know much about Ellen Rosenblum at the time, but I knew exactly who Dwight Holton was. Dwight Holton is one of the biggest anti-medical marijuana crusaders on the planet. During Holton’s two years as a federal prosecutor in Oregon, he lead a series of raids on medical marijuana providers in Southern Oregon Oregon, which deprived hundreds of legal patients of their medicine. Dwight Holton also sent harassing letters to law abiding Oregon collective owners. I personally read several of these letters from multiple collective owners who I know for a fact were following Oregon law. Learn more >>

> Why We Care ? | PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Of the thousands of laws that Oregon's attorney general enforces or interprets, the one allowing medical marijuana has lit up the campaign for that office more than any other. In a Democratic primary where the candidates agree on many things, their differences over marijuana stand out. It's anyone's guess whether the pot vote will be enough to tip the scales. But no Republicans are seeking the job, so Democrats alone will choose the state's top lawyer in the May 15 primary.

Former federal prosecutor Dwight Holton has called Oregon's marijuana law a "train wreck," and he was the U.S. Attorney for Oregon when federal agents raided marijuana farms that were legal under state law. His rival, retired Court of Appeals judge Ellen Rosenblum, has staked out a mellower view, saying she'll make marijuana enforcement a low priority. You can Read More >> < here.

Ellen and her husband Richard Meeker have two children Cate and Will.

Former Appeals Court Judge Ellen Rosenblum will seek Oregon attorney general job Former Appeals Court Judge Ellen Rosenblum will seek Oregon attorney general job | In her 36-year legal career, Ellen Rosenblum has prosecuted foreign corporations on steel-dumping charges, overseen murder trials in Multnomah County and challenged fellow judges on the state's Court of Appeals in deciding cases. Ellen Rosenblum, 60, of Portland, a former Oregon Court of Appeals judge, announced her intention to run for Oregon attorney general.Now, the 60-year-old Portland resident who retired from the appellate bench last May is aiming for the next phase of her career -- to be the state's attorney general. "I believe the attorney general needs to fight for Oregon workers and families," she said Wednesday, adding that she would in particular focus on consumer protection, public safety and child-advocacy issues. "I think I'm ready to roll. I can put on the gloves with just about anyone." Read More >>

Oregon: Vote Ellen Rosenblum - Candidate to Become Oregon's First Female Attorney General Oregon: Vote Ellen Rosenblum - Candidate to Become Oregon's First Female Attorney General | (PORTLAND, OR Hemp News) - As Oregon moves closer toward marijuana legalization in November with the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act 2012 (OCTA 2012) and the Oregon Marijuana Policy Initiative 2012 (OMPI 2012) petition drives, the race for Oregon Attorney General on May 15th between Appeals Court Judge Ellen Rosenblum and former acting U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton will be crucial to the implementation of the cannabis legalization initiatives. Earlier this month, in a debate at the Eugene City Club, Rosenblum said she supported the state’s current medical marijuana law as one that "provides vulnerable citizens with the medicine they needed to cope with their diagnoses."

On the other hand, Holton said the law is actually "a train wreck, putting marijuana in the hands of people, kids, who are not using it for pain management purposes. Of 50,000 card holders, 30,000 got them from 10 clinics. We’ve got a broken system." Just last summer, Holton issued a letter to Oregon medical marijuana collectives, co-signed by 34 district attorneys, the head of the Oregon State Sheriffs' Association and the head of the Oregon Chiefs of Police.

Phil Knight Donates $25,000 to Ellen Rosenblum for Oregon Attorney General Phil Knight Donates $25,000 to Ellen Rosenblum for Oregon Attorney General | Oregon’s richest man doesn’t always donate to 2012 Oregon Attorney General candidates, but when he does, he prefers donating to Ellen Rosenblum. The Oregon Attorney General race in the Democratic Primary seemed to be languishing un-noticed by the local mainstream media until cannabis activists started exposing the differences between Ellen Rosenblum and Dwight Holton regarding cannabis laws. Now, the Oregonian and other media outlets are extensively covering the race, and Ms. Rosenblum just snagged herself her biggest contributor to date from the Oregonian with the biggest pockets, Nike founder Phil Knight. Unfortunately, Ms. Rosenblum still lags behind Mr. Holton in total funds raised, but the gap is certainly closing. According to Oregon election records, Holton had raised $437,249 as of April 14th . Comparatively, Mr. Knight’s contribution will raise Ms. Rosenblum’s total to $375,399.

Cannabis activists are overwhelmingly favoring Ellen Rosenblum – a candidate who has stated that she “will make marijuana enforcement a low priority, and protect the rights of medical marijuana patients.” Conversely, Dwight Holton has a proven anti-cannabis record. He not only helped lead a federal crackdown of Oregon medical marijuana providers but has also called the voter-approved medical marijuana law, “a train wreck.” Read More >>

Dwight Holton, Marijuana Foe or Activist for Big Pharma? Dwight Holton, Marijuana Foe or Activist for Big Pharma? | (SALEM, Ore.) - The top federal attorney in Oregon, Dwight Holton, has written an extensive article carried in the Oregonian complaining at length about Oregon's medical marijuana laws. It relates to the dispensary letter signed by all but one of Oregon's 36 district attorneys, that so many were talking about last week[1]. Holton raises numerous questions about this program and if it weren't for people like him, teamed with the Portland media, the media tools, nobody would ever know there was a problem. The only 'problems' about medical marijuana stem from the idiocy of having any laws against natural healthcare remedies.

This man is a politician, but operating in this way tells me he is working for big pharma; not for the people of this nation and particularly not for Oregonians who have to tolerate his federal presence here. You can't attack pot without benefiting that morally void pill addiction industry that floods our television channels with embarrassing endless advertisements. Read More >>

Oregon Attorney General candidate Dwight Holton stops in Eugene-Springfield Oregon Attorney General candidate Dwight Holton stops in Eugene-Springfield | Holton spent the last 15 years as a federal prosecutor, most recently as Oregon's acting U.S. Attorney. As state attorney general, Holton says one of his biggest focuses would be crime prevention. Holton says 85-percent of the people in Oregon corrections have drug issues, which need to be addressed.

"If we want to get serious about the budget if we want to get serious about getting this right, we need to fund early intervention programs, we need to fund public education, and we need to fund addiction treatment programs,” says Holton. Read More >>

Justice and the Oregon attorney general's race between Dwight Holton and Ellen Rosenblum Justice and the Oregon attorney general's race between Dwight Holton and Ellen Rosenblum | Most of us, I believe, confront the ballot with prism in hand, the imperfect lens through which we measure the quality of the candidates and the relevance of the election. In the Oregon attorney general's race between Ellen Rosenblum and Dwight Holton, your prism may be marijuana, prosecutorial passion or John Kroger. My prism is Ben Alfano.

In the last two months of the veteran's life, which I chronicled in February, Alfano was wrenched from the assisted-living facility he loved and dumped in a Gresham dementia-care unit. Alfano died there on Feb. 26, 2011, an especially bitter turn for four of his children, who had complained about conservator and guardianship issues for years. Those objections were typically met with smug disdain, or worse, by the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs, and its well-paid bodyguard at the Department of Justice. Read More >>

"Medical Marijuana and Anti- Cannabis, Microcephalic, Contentious Cretins: ARE THEY PSYCHOPATHS AGAINST SICK PEOPLE? *Dr. Phil Leveque Salem- News.com* | Who really believes the reefer madness line anymore? Ask Dwight Holton. (MOLALLA, Ore.) - I cannot get over the television advertisements regarding the Oregon Attorney General election. Dwight Holton, a recent carpetbagger to the State, appeared to have lots of money for his T.V. advertisements and it was acutely interesting to me to discover where all this money was coming from. When I found out, almost by accident, I was truly floored. It turned out that Mr. Holton had his own website, holtonfororegon.com/endorseme nts, in which 190 organizations and individuals outed themselves as *psychopaths*, trying to kill the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program and condemning some 50,000 Marijuana patients to lives of miserable pain and even death for their egregious ignorance of the great and safe benefits of Cannabis/Marijuana as a highly effective medicine which is even far safer than aspirin or even caffeine or coffee.

" By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, May 17, 12:43 PM | PORTLAND, Ore. — Medical marijuana advocates have a message for Democratic leaders and federal prosecutors with an eye on political office: Don’t mess with pot. Pushing back against a federal effort to stem the proliferation of medical marijuana operations, one of the nation’s largest drug policy groups claimed credit Wednesday for the defeat of a former federal prosecutor who was the early favorite to win the Democratic primary for Oregon attorney general. As interim U.S. attorney, Dwight Holton called Oregon’s medical marijuana law a “train wreck” and oversaw efforts to crack down on medical marijuana clubs and grow operations that he said were fronts for illegal marijuana sales. Federal prosecutors have led similar crackdowns in other states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal use.

"Kicking Ass and Taking Names: Another Anti-Medical Marijuana Candidate Bites the Dust | Last night, the medical cannabis advocate community defeated a second anti-medical marijuana candidate in a state Attorney General race. In Oregon, Dwight Holton, a former US attorney, lost in a landslide after medical cannabis became a campaign issue. In 2010, we defeated Steve Cooley in a very close race for California Attorney General. And these are not the only recent victories. Any day now, Connecticut will become the 17th state to adopt medical cannabis laws. Last week, 73% of President Obama's own party in Congress voted against his policy of cracking down on medical marijuana, and the week before, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi stood up to condemn Drug Enforcement Administration raids in medical cannabis states.

" Pot Politics: Will Oregon's Attorney General Election Send a Crucial Message to Dispensary- Busting Feds? If the candidate who ordered raids on medical pot growers in Southern Oregon loses the election, the loss may reverberate with US Attorneys around the country.

Medical marijuana has become a major issue in the Democratic primary for attorney general in Oregon. The candidates have staked out starkly different positions on the issue, with former judge Ellen Rosenblum supportive of patients' right to safe and legal access to medical marijuana, and former Interim US Attorney Dwight Holton sharply critical of the program. With no Republican having filed for the office, the winner of the Democratic primary will be the state's next attorney general, and the fate of Oregon's medical marijuana program may hang in the balance. Oregon's voting is done entirely by mail. Ballots went out on April 27 and must be posted by May 15.

"Dwight Holton's day job raises questions By John Springer of Portland, Oregon.John is a longtime political activist and retired technology manager active with the Occupy Portland movement.

On May Day, “Solutions” -- a spoke of Occupy Portland -- protested a questionable relationship between Attorney General candidate Dwight Holton and the downtown Portland law firm Lane Powell.

Lane Powell is a major law firm with more than 200 attorneys in offices located throughout Washington, Oregon, Alaska and London, England. According to their website, they engage in a wide range of business litigation, including a “White Collar Criminal Defense” division, which proudly defends dozens of large corporations against charges of price-fixing, tax evasion, water pollution, health care fraud, internet fraud, and other business practices that cheat and harm the 99%. On January 9, two days before he announced his race for AG, Lane Powell issued a press release announcing that Holton had joined Lane Powell as an “addition to our rapidly growing White Collar Criminal Defense Practice”. I wonder why defending corporate criminals while running for office is a great quality in an Attorney General. Visit - http://www.blueoregon.com/2012/05/dwight-holtons-day-job-raises-questions/ "
