SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The committee tasked with drawing up the rules for Oregon's medical marijuana dispensary program is facing questions about security, marijuana testing and paying for oversight.
Oregon's legislature passed House Bill 3460 during the 2013 legislative session that approved medical marijuana retail establishments and created a registry for potentially hundreds of businesses that want to sell medical marijuana.
The Statesman Journal reports (http://stjr.nl/19TznQN) Oregon's Medical Marijuana Dispensary Law Rules Advisory Committee met Friday with several fundamental questions about the program still looming before the dispensary law goes into effect on March 1.
Proposed security rules for the dispensaries include round-the-clock recorded surveillance and where the dispensary's marijuana and cash will be kept while the business is closed.
The panel was also frustrated by the lack of literature on marijuana testing.
