DHS will continue to receive and process applications, Higginson said, but no registration cards will be issued until the Department of Justice provides further direction.
Oregon is one of the states with laws allowing the medical use of marijuana with a doctor's recommendation. Currently, more than 10,000 medical marijuana patients are registered in Oregon's program.
Staff in the state medical marijuana program were responding to card-holders' questions Monday, such as whether they can withdraw from the program ( they can ), and deferring detailed answers until the attorney general issues a legal opinion.
