|

The most important bill concerning Oregon’s medical marijuana program has passed through the legislature and is headed for the Governor’s desk. House Bill 2198, which passed the House on Wednesday cleared the Senate on Thursday as the Oregon legislature wrapped up its legislative session for the year. The bill creates a cannabis commission that will oversee the states medical marijuana program (OMMP), as well as a number of other significant modifications to the states beleaguered medical marijuana system. The Senate voted 18 for the bill and 12 against.

“The passage of House Bill 2198 gives the patients and their growers a great future,” said Anthony Taylor, the bills main advocate.
