Details:  

... to medical marijuana; creating new provisions; and amending ... to deny application for medical marijuana registry identification card if applicant ... controlled substance from using medical marijuana registry identification card. Requires Oregon ...

Discussion: This bill would punish citizens who committed a past felony, but that have served their time, and who are also sick enough become doctor-qualified to use medical marijuana. In this way, the bill seeks to re-punish citizens. This will would create a significant unfunded mandate for background checks on an estimated 80,000 current OMMP cardholders, including caregivers as well as patients. The OMPI estimate for the cost of 80,000 background checks is at least $7.5 million.

It is unlikely that state agencies could conduct 75,000 background checks without the assistance of law enforcement agencies or private contractors. This would create a significant privacy concern for OMMP cardholders, who currently enjoy privacy unless part of an active criminal investigation. This bill also has a punitive effect on patients who were convicted as drug felons in states with harsh laws; those same patients would have suffered no more than a misdemeanor under Oregon law. For example, Oregon residents can possess not more than one ounce of marijuana and receive only a civil penalty. In other states, the amount needed for a felony conviction is much lower.

The cost of this measure raises the fear of new fees and fee increases for OMMP program members, to pay for background checks. In general, OMMP patients are not able to afford higher fees. 39.4% of OMMP cardholders currently receive a discounted OMMP fee because they are low-income, according to OMMP analysis.
