Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends that Oregon weigh the costs to enter the program against the benefits. Patients are saddled with an enormous yearly registration fee just to access medical cannabis in the state; this should be removed immediately. Patients should also not face discrimination, and lawmakers should act swiftly to protect patient rights when it comes to housing, employment, education, and family court cases.

In light of the adult use/recreational laws, Oregon should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
