A-A+ Advocacy groups in Oregon, California and Washington joined forces Wednesday to form a West Coast lobby for legal marijuana. The Oregon Cannabis Association, the California Cannabis Industry Association and The Cannabis Alliance, of Washington, announced an information and resource sharing agreement to address cannabis policy in their respective states. Adult use of marijuana is legal in all three states. The combination was underway prior to U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions rollback Jan. 3...
A-A+ Ten years have passed since Justin Clapick and Travis Busack started growing medical marijuana in the two-car garage at Clapick’s former rented home in Bend. “He had this loft space up there, and I moved up there with my cat,” Busack said Jan. 3. “I had my medical card, and I also had a buddy with terminal brain cancer. I was, like, hey, dude, we should grow weed in your garage.” At a loss for space, they learned to be efficient, he said. They made three “rooms” for three phases of...
A-A+ U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, said Friday he favors extending the two-year tax break given brewers, winemakers and distillers in the federal tax bill signed into law in December. The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act slices in half the federal excise tax on beer for the smallest brewers, those that produce less than 2 million barrels of beer annually. That encompasses most Oregon-based brewers, from Deschutes Brewery, of Bend, whose production brewery turned out...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
