California begins adult use cannabis sales on Jan.1, and is expected to become the largest market for cannabis. I'm in San Francisco as I write this, headed to L.A. for the next column. When both states have full legalization, which one's better? So here's how this goes: I decide to get my California medical marijuana card. Google directs me to Nugsmd.com, which has me upload a copy of my Oregon ID and some basic info, including what ails me. I pay $69 and two minutes later a doctor calls me and asks how cannabis helps me with my stress and insomnia. I've barely answered when he says I qualify, and 30 seconds later, my doctor's recommendation arrives in my inbox while we are still talking. He says San Francisco has more liberal rules, allowing those with a MMJ card in if they do not have a California ID—but says when I'm in L.A., I should use delivery services. Points for California for being faster, cheaper and more convenient. I get recommendations for San Francisco dispensaries, although finding one isn't exactly a problem. At one, I count off less than 50 steps before I'm at the front door of another. My Lyft driver is 20-something, and when my vape pen falls out of m ...

Just four hours earlier, Sallie Cutler had been sharing Mother’s Day lunch with her mom, Alyce Cheatham. Then, that same evening, Cheatham, 96, landed in a Portland, Ore., emergency room, lethargic, unable to speak and paralyzed on her right side by a massive stroke. Cutler now admits her first impulse was to demand action. “It’s, like, do something; make her better,” said Cutler. “As a child, you can’t just say let her die.” But Cheatham’s medical records contained a different demand. When the doctor on duty at Oregon Health and Science University clicked once in the chart header, it was immediately clear: Cheatham wanted no efforts to prolong her life. “He said, ‘The good news is, your mom had a POLST form, so you don’t really have any decisions to make,’” recalled Cutler, 63, of Sherwood, Ore. “I was so relieved. I cannot tell you how relieved I was. She had made all the decisions for me ahead of time.” POLST forms, formally known as Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment, have become a staple in care for the fragile or seriously ill. They document in detail what kind of medical treatments patients want — or don’t want — at the end of life. Nearly ev ...

A researcher looks at a piece of Japanese debris in Washington. The morning of June 5, 2012, invasive species researcher John Chapman’s wife, who works for the health department in Newport, Oregon, told him he had to go with her to see a mysterious object that had washed onto the town’s beach. Chapman was initially skeptical that the beached mass would be of any interest to him, scientifically speaking. The Oregon police and parks service were already at the scene, checking the large concrete slab for radiation. A plaque said the object was a fisheries dock from Misawa, Aomori Prefecture, Japan, but Chapman only had to glance at the creatures stuck to the plastic to know the source. “I was completely shocked to see all these Asian species on this dock,” he says. That object was a small chunk of many tons of plastic garbage launched into the sea in 2011, after an earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, according to a new study in Science. Invertebrates like the Japanese shipworm and the Asian shore crab — and even a few species of fish—colonized the debris, forming floating islands of garbage and sea creatures. These floating piles of junk traveled more than 4,350 mi ...

The future of US retirement provision may not be found in Wall Street, but 3,800km away in Oregon, a state better known for timber, Nike trainers and microbreweries. OregonSaves, a pilot programme that began enrolling participants this summer, is the first of many initiatives being developed by US states that are designed to provide workers in the private sector with access to retirement plans. The state-sponsored retirement plan market could grow from scratch to $600bn over 15 years, according to Ascensus College Savings, one company that has taken an interest in it. “The need is real,” says Scott Morrison, chief product officer at Ascensus, which has been hired to manage Oregon’s programme as well as a similar scheme for Illinois.
