Medical Marijuana Regulation Closer in Oregon

Could become monitored next year


Medical marijuana dispensaries could soon be licensed and regulated in Oregon.

The Senate passed a bill Wednesday on an 18-12 vote that would require the Oregon Health Authority to set up a registration system of medical marijuana dispensaries, authorizing the transfer of the drug and immature marijuana plants to patients.

House Bill 3460 heads back to the House for concurrence on changes made to the bill despite opposition from some Senate Republicans.
