Brown Asks For Tighter Medical Marijuana Restrictions

California lawmakers have reached a historic compromise on regulating the world’s largest medical pot economy.

OREGON:  Gov. Kate Brown on Friday added pressure to a group of lawmakers working to regulate Oregon’s medical marijuana market, saying she wants the state to require a tracking system that follows marijuana from the day it’s planted to the day it’s sold.

Brown wrote she supports the system, known as seed-to-sale, in a letter to members of the joint legislative committee tasked with regulating marijuana before possession becomes legal for adults July 1.

Seed-to-sale tracking would add costs for medical marijuana growers and processors, Brown said. But she wrote she believes “anything short of a strong tracking system” would result in lost revenue that would otherwise come to the state through the recreational market.
