The Oregon regulatory agency whose testing procedures have been blamed for damaging the state’s medical cannabis industry is being targeted by state lawmakers.
Legislation proposed for the 2017 session would wrest some or all control of medical marijuana from the Oregon Health Authority, the Portland Business Journal reported.
When the state legislature convenes Feb. 1, it is likely to hear proposals that would:
- Essentially disband the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and create an Oregon Cannabis Commission to oversee the state’s medical cannabis industry.
- Forbid the OHA from registering medical cannabis dispensaries as well as cultivation and processing sites.
