Both patient and caregiver should be familiar with the provisions of
OMMA. The full text of the law and related documents are provided by the
Oregon Health Division with their information packet for patients. Contact
the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP)
to request this information.
If the garden is at the caregiver's residence, the caregiver can possess
up to three dried ounces and the patient can possess up to one ounce at
their residence. Either the patient or the caregiver can transport up to
one ounce away from their residence. The garden can contain seven marijuana
plants (3 mature). The garden must not be visible from a public place.
Patients who exceed the explicit limits of the law may also be protected
by an affirmative defense or choice of evils defense. There are many cases
where strict compliance with the limits will cause patients to suffer because
they are not using enough medicine. In such cases, patients should get
a statement from their doctor stating that they require greater amounts.
All participants should be aware that federal law still prohibits marijuana
possession although it is unlikely that an OMMA cardholder would be prosecuted.
OMMA does not allow sale of marijuana under any circumstances.
