OREGON: Oregon launched its medical marijuana dispensary program Monday. Nearly 300 dispensary owners signed up at this first opportunity for a state license.
For the past two years, medical marijuana dispensaries have been popping up across Oregon. But until now, they weren’t officially recognized under state law.
The new registry requires the storefront operations to implement security measures and mandates strict testing and labeling rules. The application costs $4,000 and dispensaries will be subject to annual inspections.
