Medical Marijuana Patient Names in Oregon May Remain Confidential

Currently all medical marijuana patient names are confidential. Currently there is a bill working its way through the State Legislature that if made law, would give police access to medical marijuana patient names in Oregon and breach patient confidentiality. The bill is sponsored by Republican State representative Andy Olson and two other former state police troopers who now serve in the Legislature, and is aimed at keeping medical marijuana out of the hands of teenagers.

However, the bill hit a snag in the committee process. Aparently it did not make it our of the normal committee process in the Senate in time and will now head to the House Rules Committee. Senate Judiciary Chairman Floyd Prozanski said the proposal has not had the kind of public discussion needed to move forward in the legislature.
