Oregon's Marijuana Program history:
In 2014, Oregon's HB3460 allowed for the opening of medical marijuana dispensing facilities to provide safe access for qualifying medical patients. Beginning on March 3rd, 2014, Facilities were able to apply for licensing through the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
"A Better Way" was one of the first licensed dispensaries in Southern Oregon, and remains as a leader in the cannabis movement in southern Oregon, and Klamath County.
In 2018, the people at A Better Way ran the initiative to allow for recreational cannabis facilities in Klamath Falls, and WON that right! YAY!
As a result, A Better Way is now able to provide cannabis and cannabis products to anyone 21 years old and older. Without ABW, there still would not be ANY legal cannabis facilities in Klamath Falls.
Stop by and say hello to the people who continue to fight for your rights as a cannabis consumer. The fight is far from over!

Edward Medina Jr. - PRF/CEO
I am Edward Medina Jr., the founder, PRF, and owner of A Better Way Medicinal Alternatives LLC. I am an Oregon native, and have lived in Klamath Falls most of my life. I attended Mazama High School, and graduated Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science degree in 2000. While at OIT, I earned the President's Senior Cup, one of the highest honors at OIT. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA, and I am very proud of my accomplishments in higher education. I then attended Pacific University in persuit of a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2001, but decided that mainstream healthcare was not for me. After returning home to Klamath Falls, I worked at Merle West Medical Center (now Sky Lakes) in several areas of healthcare. I worked as a physical therapy assistant, a cardiac rehab technician, and as a histotechnician in the tissue lab. At the same time, my wife and I were raising two sons, Rick, and Eddie III. It wasn't easy on any of us, but we were determined to make a better life for us all. After a short time, we decided to go in a different direction. We opened Absolute Computer Service in October of 2001, a computer repair, service and sales company. We ran Absolute Computers until early 2015. At that time, we transitioned to the dispensary, and closed Absolute.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, a deadly liver disease. When faced with these health challenges, and facing severe liver damage, I looked for alternatives to prescription drugs, since all pharmaceuticals can cause more liver damage. The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) became a big part of my life. Cannabis gave me an alternative to the prescription drugs that were killing me. I have learned all I can about MMJ, and the OMMP in the last several years. I was no stranger to cannabis, I'll be honest, I have used it off on and on most of my life. When I learned that Oregon was planning on allowing MMJ dispensaries to operate in Oregon, we started to plan for the opening of a dispensary in Klamath Falls. It has been a long and frustrating process getting to where we are, but in the end, it will all be worth it. Helping others was the reason I went into healthcare. and now I get the chance to actually do it! I cannot express in words to you how much it means to me that we were able to get A Better Way off the ground, and a chance to actually do something meaningful in this lifetime. I am 100% dedicated to this program, and will run myself ragged doing my best to ensure our patients receive the best care and best products this state can provide. I have found a team of people that feel the same as I, and we are working diligently to help those who need it most... our friends and neighbors with terminal and chronic health problems. You have my promise that I will work tirelessly for you... my customers, my patients, my friends.
