Oregon has New Rules for Using Dispensaries of Medical Marijuana
One of Oregon’s most heated issues is the regulation of medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. As reported by the Daily Chronic, the Oregon Senate Committee on Rules changed certain provisions of the recently-passed House Bill 3460, or the “Medical Marijuana Dispensary Bill,” to discourage people from abusing this controlled substance. Specifically, the proposed law will no longer allow anyone with a previous drug conviction, whether in Oregon, or out-of-state, from operating a cannabis dispensary across the state.
Debate is still on-going, although such concerns are understandable since the mere concept of using an infamous drug for medical purposes raises questions – citing many gray areas, both legally and morally. However, people who seriously need to have cannabis in their medication will be disadvantaged if they are denied access to the drug.
