Dispensaries can continue to sell extracts to OMMP clients, says OHA.

(SALEM, Ore.) - cannabis oil Currently, the legality of extracts, oils and concentrates has been on the radar. There was a lapse in the timing for legal sales, and so it had to be gone over with a fine tooth comb. This is OHA's answer to the situation at hand:

Dispensaries may continue to sell or transfer extracts that they have in stock as of March 1, 2016, to OMMP patients with a valid registry identification card.

(SALEM, Ore.) - Oregon Capitol Were Oregon voters boondoggled when they “legalized” marijuana? Some say "Yes". But not by those that brought it forward; no... it was a political move, well played. Three times within the text, it was said that Measure 91 would "retain current medical marijuana laws". Three times. It passed by a 12-point margin by Oregon voters.

Then, the Legislature apparently was overcome by the impression that the (adult and most likely literate) voters did not understand marijuana and they decided to implement changes, for the benefit of said naive adults.

The nonsensical prohibition of cannabis, an herb used for 5,000 years, was over in our fair state. Of course the challenge with the Federal government still rages on, but locally, we have made incredible headway. Or so we thought.
