ACLU of Oregon Urges State Officials to Immediately Resume Medical Marijuana Card Program
PORTLAND, OR -- The American Civil Liberties of Oregon issued a letter today to the State Attorney General’s office and the Department of Human Services urging the immediate resumption of the state’s medical marijuana card program in compliance with state law.
"As long as a patient has submitted an application for a medical marijuana card with the Department of Human Services, they have the same level of legal protection as if they were holding the card in their hands, unless and until that application is denied."
That last statement is very interesting. Does that mean that if I submit an application, no matter how fraudulent, I have immunity from state marijuana laws until that application is denied? Imagine how long it takes that beuaracracy to deny an application, especially if they are on drugs...
