State: Child care providers can’t use medical marijuana

A handful of child care providers who use medical marijuana will have to choose between their business and their medication following a unanimous vote Wednesday by the Early Learning Council.

“Caring for children is not an entitlement; not when it’s other people’s children,” said Duke Shepard, a policy adviser for Gov. John Kitzhaber.

At the governor’s request, the council imposed temporary changes to its registry rules, revoking permission to hold child care licenses from individuals who use, grow or distribute medical marijuana.
