Grants Pass, Or.

Nature Scripts is an alternative & holistic health service that is actually in Murphy outside of Grants Pass. Let's get right to this. Yes, Nature Script's is a dispensary. Yes, they do offer marijuana and cannabis products. Nature Scripts believes in the third day goodness. On the Third day God made all of the grasses, herb yielding seeds, and trees yielding fruit. He called it good. Cannabis is an incredible creation. The medicinal properties of Cannabis are many. Providing the perfect strain for Pain, PTSD, Cancer, Insomnia, ADHD. Ending the cycle of prescription drug dependency, is their purpose and primary goal.
Confession time....I am a cannabis user. Years of pounding on my body took it's toll. The price was paid for decades of hard physical labor like wildland fire fighting and even from my ski racing career. I just did not want to put any more toxins into my body than I had to. i watched my grandmother suffer through a terrible addiction to pain pills.She wound up on Methadone. The first addict i ever saw that was "on the nod" from being overdosed was her. I knew there had to be a better way free from the side effects and other things that would result from long term pain medication use. Happily for me, cannabis has turned out to be that thing. It does provide the pain relief I need. And one other thing here. I was an EMT for 10 years with municipal fire departments. I saw a lot of devastation caused by alcohol. TONS of it. But, I never saw marijuana produce the same negative effects out on society as a whole that I saw with alcohol.
I encourage you to keep an open mind to this. Do your study. Ask your doctor. Cannabis may be right to help you too. And if this is an option you want to pursue check out Nature Scripts I know you will find their Herbal Apothecary inviting, and warm. I sure did. Great people there.
NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
C.A.T.S. - Committed Alliance To Strays
104 N. Ross Lane
541 - 779 - 2916
C.A.T.S. or the Committed Alliance To Strays is a not for profit here in Medford, Oregon that does amazing work with stray or unwanted cats and kittens. They provide a safe refuge for them to try and get them into new homes. This is a NO kill facility. No cats are ever euthanized here. The work they do is vitally important. Feral or wild domestic cats are a major problem to be dealt with. They can carry a wide variety of diseases. They can be a huge nuisance, They also can be death on a wide range of wildlife. Here in the Rogue Valley domesticated cats were a huge culprit along with habitat loss in the shocking and sudden decline in the pheasant population. Locally thousands of birds are killed each year by domestic cats. C.A.T.S. helps to combat this problem in several ways. First, they take cats off the streets and out of the wild. They also prevent others from finding their way into wildness by taking in cats that people can no longer have as pets for whatever reason. To help reduce the number of cats overall, they have a spay and neuter program. In addition C.A.T.S. provides health care to all the cats in their care. They get the full range of shots and nutrition needed to make sure they are happy and healthy ready to go home with you and be awesome pets.
C.A.T.S. DESPERATELY needs your help right now to continue the work that they do. You do not need to do much, Even a $5 - $10 donation from you means a lot to them. C.A.T. S. is a registered not for profit so all donations are tax deductible. Your donation to them actually does help wildlife too because it helps keep more cats from roaming the landscape of the Rogue Valley, and in good homes were they can be well cared for. Again, not much help is required per person, but if all of us here at Rogueweather would make a $10 donation each month, they would have all the funding they need to continue the work that they do. Join Tari and me in making your donation today.
Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation
The mission of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation was founded in 1984 by four hunters from Troy, Montana who wanted to ensure a future for North America’s grandest game animal. From those beginnings of just four hunters in 1984, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has more than 500 chapters across the country, (including chapters throughout Southern Oregon). Chapters host annual events, including Big Game Banquets, to raise funds for conservation projects across elk country. Here in Oregon alone, the RMEF has invested over $47 million dollars into helping preserve habitat or funding projects to benefit elk and all wildlife in Oregon. They have also been instrumental in opening up previously closed land and making it accessible to everybody through purchases of land that is then turned over to the Forest Service or BLM. This of course has benefits to ALL Oregonians. We all benefit from the work that RMEF does. If you are an elk hunter, joining RMEF is something that you just have to do. Even if you are not an elk hunter, but want to help make our state a better place for all, joining RMEF is a great thing to do. Joining this great organization helps to make sure that we will always have elk roaming our wildlands, and that all wildlife benefits as a rwesult of what RMEF does.
