More than 3,000 stem samples contributed by hundreds of Oregon cannabis farmers allowed Phylos Bioscience to map the genome of cannabis plants, each plant a star in a constellation of weed strains. The "genetic galaxy project" made Portland-based Phylos one of Oregon's most prominent cannabis-related companies. But when Phylos announced last week it would launch its own breeding program—pursuing mildew-resistant strains, stronger hemp that sequesters more carbon, and high-THC, high-terpene flowers—local cultivators screamed foul. They had given Phylos so much DNA, many felt the company had misled growers to gain a competitive advantage in the industry. In the past, Phylos said it had no plans to breed plants. Cannabis growers responded to the move with allegations of theft. Phylos co-founder Mowgli Holmes says that's not true—and not possible. "We can't steal their actual plants," Holmes says. "We wouldn't do that. It would be illegal to do that. And, scientifically, if you have a piece of dead [plant] material, you can't bring it back to life. That would be like bringing a person back from a fingernail." But the company's reassurances that it won't be using the DNA ...

SALEM, Oregon — A U.S. judge in Oregon said Tuesday he intends to at least partially block a rule change by President Donald Trump's administration that could cut off federal funding for providers who refer patients for an abortion, though the scope of his decision remains to be seen. U.S. District Judge Michael McShane made the comments after more than three hours of arguments in a lawsuit brought by 20 states and the District of Columbia, The Oregonian reported. The states said the rule change, which takes effect May 3, is an attack on Planned Parenthood and a violation of the Affordable Care Act. Under the Trump administration's new policy, health care providers that receive federal funding would be barred from referring patients for an abortion. Programs that receive the money would also have to be in a separate physical space from facilities where abortion is performed. 'At the heart of these rules is an arrogant assumption that the government is better suited to direct women's health care than their providers,' Oregon Public Broadcasting quoted the judge as saying. ...

Last year, legislative budget-writers asked the Corrections Department to study how much it would cost the state to renovate an old prison in Salem to house elderly inmates. Corrections officials returned to lawmakers last week to present their initial findings. State Sen. Jackie Winters, R-Salem, the co-chair of a budget subcommittee on public safety, was one of the lawmakers who asked for the study. Winters, a leading voice on criminal justice issues in the Legislature, said in an interview that she was curious how Oregon was using a vacant penitentiary in the state capital. She foresees a need for the state to accommodate aging prisoners, who will require more intensive medical care. “For me, it was like, you’ve got to start planning,” Winters said. “You can’t wait until D-Day.” The share of senior prisoners has grown in recent years. According to the Oregon Corrections Department, in 2018, people 50 and older made up 21 percent of the inmate population. That compares to 12 percent in 2004. “This issue has been on our radar for decades,” said Jennifer Black, a department spokeswoman. The trend is happening across the country. The number of state pri ...

Legislation aimed at reducing crop damage from elk has pitted Oregon agriculture groups against hunting organizations that say the proposals will allow for irresponsible killing. The state House and Senate are considering bills under which the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife would issue tags with more flexible rules for killing elk that consume hay, trample fields and damage fences. Proponents of House Bill 3227 and Senate Bill 301 argue that existing tools for managing elk damage have proven to be insufficient as populations of the ungulates have increased. “It’s like someone coming into your living room every month and saying, ‘Give me 25% of your income,’” said Rep. Greg Barreto, R-Cove, chief sponsor of HB 3227. The specifics of each proposal are different but both would call for damage tags to be issued to “persons” rather than “landowners,” which hunting organizations claim will greatly expand the field of people who qualify to kill elk. “This bill will allow for the senseless killing of elk during times when elk are most vulnerable,” said Fred Walasavage, board member of the Oregon Hunters Association. HB 3227 would create an “excessive elk damage pi ...
