Medical Marijuana In Oregon: Rules To Be Posted Within A Week, State Hiring Staff For Retail Registry

OREGON: Rules for Oregon’s medical marijuana dispensary industry should be posted in about a week, state officials said Tuesday.

The rules will be the subject of a series of public hearings around the state before they are finalized. However, the state will allow dispensaries to operate under temporary rules after March 3, when the state begins accepting applications from prospective outlet owners.

Officials with the Oregon Health Authority are creating a website for the state’s registry of medical marijuana retailers, said Karynn Fish, an agency spokeswoman. The state will begin accepting applications online from prospective businesses at 8:30 a.m. March 3.

Fish said officials hope to launch the website by the end of the month. It will feature a draft application as well as information about what applicants need to do to comply with the law.
