About this

Since the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) is only a registry program, many questions asked about the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act fall outside the legal bounds of the registry program and will not be answered by OMMP staff. MERCY will attempt to help you with these questions, however. Need to get seeds or plants? Need to find a doctor? click here <

As a token gesture, the OMMP website offers links similar to the ones below to well-known, privately operated search engines, such as Google, and MSN. These links are pre-set to the keywords "medical+marijuana+Oregon" and are meant to provide answers questions beyond the scope of the OMMP. Click here to visit the OMMP (internet) About page. Click here for more details.  

The use of the keyword "marijuana" limits the results of your search, however, and so MERCY has extended the options for you on this page by including ones utilizing the word cannabis. Also, we have included other engines as each one can produce one or two results the others don't. click here to visit MERCYs InterNet About page

Mission Statement
To administer the registration program of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA) as approved by the voters of the State of Oregon in November 1998.
Organization
Annual Performance Measures

Who we are:
 
The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) is a State registry program within the Public Health Division, Oregon Department of Human Services.
 
 
Why we are here:
 
To process the applications of Oregonians suffering from qualifying debilitating medical conditions for the use of medicinal marijuana without the fear of civil or criminal penalties when their doctors advise that such use may provide a medical benefit.
 
 
What we are doing:
  • Conducting the administrative process of all applications for the purpose of issuing a medical marijuana registry identification card.
  • Maintaining records in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA).
  • Providing administrative support to the DHS director appointed Advisory Committee on Medical Marijuana.
  • Promoting knowledge of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act, program policies and processes to patients, caregivers and growers by participating in advocate work group sessions.
  • Promoting consistency and awareness concerning the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA) by providing statewide training to Law Enforcement Agencies.
  • Monitor 24/7 electronic Law Enforcement verification data system to ensure that OMMP cardholders receive the best protection against arrest and prosecution.
 
The difference we are making:
 
Since the inception of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act in 1998, the program has shown continued growth, from just over 500 cardholders in April of 2000, to over 12,000 in April of 2006.  The program actively pursues administrative streamlining processes in an effort to better serve our patients while maintaining the highest level of confidentiality.  Multiple states have requested information on Oregon's program to use as a model for their own medical marijuana initiatives and registration systems.
