While the rules do allow for pediatric cannabis patients to medicate while at daycare, the rules still prohibit medical marijuana card holders from obtaining daycare licenses or certification.

Since the Office of Child Care (OCC) has no access to the list of cardholders, it is creating a “don’t ask; don’t tell” situation that puts everyone at risk.  It does not affect “exempt” providers and pushes those cardholders that are still interested in providing daycare services into this less regulated area of child care providers.

We are mobilizing those interested parties and anyone that would like to help.  Please contact us if you are interested in helping.

Public hearings for the proposed rules will be held at the following locations and times.

October 21, 2014, from 2:00-5:00, at Portland State Office Building, 800 Oregon Avenue NE, Portland, Room 1A-80

October 23, 2014, from 6:00-8:00, at Lane Community College, 4000 E 30th Avenue, Eugene OR 97405

Written or electronic testimony accepted until November 28, 2014 – 5:00 p.m. Please send to Peter Blume at peter.h.blume@ode.state.or.us

We will also be raising money ($5,000 min.) should we find it necessary to bring this matter to the courts.  Please visit our donation page should you wish to contribute to this fund.  Further details to follow.

Thanks in advance and please stay tuned for further developments.

Anthony Taylor, Director
