Medical marijuana in Oregon: Dispensary pays thousands in civil penalties for ‘serious’ violations

By Noelle Crombie |on September 05, 2014

The Oregon Health Authority has collected $6,500 in civil penalties from a Southeast Portland medical marijuana dispensary owner for multiple “serious violations” of state rules.

It’s the first time the state has collected fines from a dispensary owner since the health authority began regulating the establishments in March.

During an unannounced visit in May to Portland Compassionate Caregivers, state inspectors found 13 violations, including poor record keeping, failing to verify whether customers were valid Oregon medical marijuana cardholders and evidence of on-site cannabis consumption. The state subsequently ordered the dispensary to close.
