Compassionate Oregon Receives Draft Legislative Concept

Share this:

Compassionate Oregon has received a draft of its legislative concept to add conditions, create lifetime cards for lifetime conditions and emergency no-cost hospice cards, health care workers allowed to administer cannabis to outside licensed facilities for home health care patients, and last but not least, ending the practice of not allowing cannabis patients to use cannabis with other medications.

We think these changes will strengthen the program and give more people the right to integrate cannabis with other health care options and provides protection and education for the mainstream medical community with patients who wish to integrate the therapeutic benefits of cannabis for their patients.

We will also be asking the legislature to consider reducing or waiving the fees of veterans who are required by VA policy to be enrolled in a state run medical marijuana program to be able to use cannabis without impacting their health care benefits.

Stay tuned, it is going to be an exciting year in cannabis politics!
