In this photo taken Wednesday June 20, 2012, David Kosmecki, left, 23, talks to Idaho State Police Trooper Justin Klitch, right, in Fruitland, Idaho. Kosmecki was stopped and charged with possession of marijuana after leaving Oregon. Kosmecki says a friend bought the marijuana at a medical co-op in Ontario, Ore. At the 45th Parallel marijuana clinic, patients stream in weekly to take advantage of Oregon’s medical marijuana program. 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.
