Oregon -- Obtaining an Oregon medical-marijuana card no longer will be limited to Oregon residents.Current administrative rules require applicants to show Oregon identification and proof of residency. But as part of a review of otherwise routine changes proposed in the rules, the Department of Justice has advised the Department of Human Services that the 1998 law authorizing medical marijuana is not limited to residents.
Temporary rules will allow the program to accept a driver's license, government-issued identification card, U.S. passport or military identification.The other rules changes, including what is considered acceptable documentation, will be heard at 11 a.m. July 30 in Conference Room 1-A at the State Office Building, 800 NE Oregon St., Portland.As of April, there were 36,380 card holders. A card authorizes a patient, or a designated caregiver, to grow a specified amount of marijuana and possess it for medical use. Doctors must approve the underlying condition, specified in the law, for which medical use is sought. The state does not furnish the names of physicians or supply medical marijuana, although a potential ballot initiative Nov. 2 would allow the state to license dispensaries.Source: Statesman Journal (OR)Author: Peter Wong, Statesman Journal Published: July 10, 2010Copyright: 2010 Statesman JournalContact: letters statesmanjournal.comURL: Medical Marijuana Archives
