Impact of New Federal Guidelines on Medical Marijuana

October, 2009


The Obama administration just announced that federal authorities are to no longer arrest or prosecute individuals lawfully using or supplying medical marijuana under state law.

For Oregon, these guidelines will have little impact as federal prosecutors currently do not prosecute individuals in compliance with Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Act.  Likewise, these guidelines do not change how employers should address medical marijuana use as it relates to employees.
