Legalizing Pot Dispensaries

Pete Springer/OPB

Medical marijuana was legalized in Oregon in 1998, but the dispensaries that have sprung up since then to connect growers with patients have operated in a legal grey area. A bill in the legislature would clarify the law surrounding dispensaries. Owners would have to register with the state, and have their product tested for impurities. Registration fees would keep the program revenue neutral by generating $900,000 a year to cover administration fees.

Are you a medical marijuana patient, grower, or dispensary owner? How would HB 3460 affect you?
