Oregon to resume issuing medical marijuana cards to qualified patients

Medical News Today

Oregon's state-operated medical marijuana program will resume issuing registration cards to qualified patients today as a result of Attorney General Hardy Myers' opinion that a June 6 US Supreme Court ruling does not invalidate the program.

The Oregon Department of Human Services had continued processing applications but discontinued issuing registration cards in the wake of the ruling, which prompted DHS to immediately seek an attorney general's opinion.

More than 10,000 qualified patients now have registration cards through the state program, one of 11 in the nation.
