Oregon opens its medical marijuana registration program Monday at 8:30 am. Dispensaries are already legal, but had no state recognition until now. They’re still subject to local government bans, and the state won’t offer protection should the federal government come after them. Marijuana, medical or otherwise, is still illegal as far as the feds are concerned.
It will cost dispensaries $4,000 a pop to register, and that’s expected to bring more than $1 million to the state. That money will be put toward monitoring the dispensaries.
