Medical pot dispensaries bill would 'add a new layer to the enforcement'

OREGON: Oregon lawmakers approved a bill that adds dispensaries to the state’s outlets for medical marijuana, but some critics are still not happy with the last-minute changes that caused lawmakers to pass it.

The state House of Representatives approved the bill on Saturday. It establishes a licensing system for medical marijuana outlets.

The bill, which passed 32-27, now goes to Gov. John Kitzhaber to sign. A spokesperson with the governor’s office said he has not decided whether he will sign it.
