On August 14, 2013, Governor John Kitzhaber signed House Bill 3460, into law establishing regulations for the creation of state-licensed medical cannabis facilities. OHA has rules and that oversees the new statewide distribution system. The sections of HB 3460 that authorize the OHA to register medical marijuana facilities are in effect since March 1, 2014. A person responsible for a registered marijuana facility is not exempt from the criminal laws governing possession, if the facility has been registered by OHA. OHA has published information about the new program.
