Current legal status of medical marijuana dispensaries in Oregon
As of March 3, 2014, only facilities registered by the Oregon Health Authority may provide certain exceptions from Oregon criminal laws governing the possession, delivery or production of marijuana as specified in ORS 475.309.
Nothing in Oregon law protects dispensaries, growers, caregivers or patients from federal prosecution.
