Oregon Medical Marijuana Act Qualifies For November Ballot

Salem, OR: Oregon election officials said this week that the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act has qualified for the November ballot. The Act seeks to expand the state’s existing medicinal marijuana law to allow qualified patients to legally possess up to ten marijuana plants and one pound of usable marijuana. The proposal would also allow state-certified nurse practitioners and naturopaths to recommend marijuana to their patients, and mandates the state legislature to promulgate rules to license and regulate medical cannabis dispensaries “to ensure that medical marijuana is available to qualified patients.”
