In arguing in support of I-1000, I’ve often asked people to look at the experiences in Oregon to see how it’s been an effective law. Now that the State Department of Health has released draft limits for medical marijuana patients that closely mimic Oregon’s limits, I think we should again look to Oregon to make a comparison. I’m cautiously optimistic that these limits will provide some level of protection for the patients, but there are certainly some problems that will need to be resolved at the next hearing in Tumwater on Monday, August 25. In the meantime, I understand that a lawsuit will be filed this week against the Department of Health over the fact that they ignored the testimony from medical professionals in arriving at the limit. I’ll post more on that as more information becomes available.
