About

Our Roots

Southern Oregon has a very lovely history with cannabis, and the latest booms in agriculture due to decriminalization and deregulations of marijuana and hemp have proven that this is an industry with a strong future.

Our local reporters have their own legacy with the region’s #1 newspaper, a Pulitzer Prize winner at that – the Mail Tribune.

This website is an extension of our publication, allowing us to keep you informed of breaking news and national interest stories that directly impact our valley.

You can still receive our quarterly print publication delivered right to your door, as a Mail Tribune or Ashland Tidings subscriber – and you can pick up a copy at any of our regional drop sites (map here) while you support this vital industry.
