In this photo taken Thursday June 21, 2102, Bill Esbensen shows a marijuana plant at his medical marijuana co-op in Ontario, Ore. At this small town on the Idaho border, many of the patients aren't Oregonians. It's perfectly legal under Oregon law, but the Idaho State Police who conduct  "interdiction emphasis patrols" at the state line make the path back to Idaho a tricky one. The situation has led some Idaho families to relocate to Oregon, and others who seek medical marijuana to face a harrowing journey back to their home state. Idaho police and politicians say the Oregon law creates a public-safety hazard in their state. (AP Photo/Nigel Duara) less
