The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) is a state-wide registry program overseen by the Public Health Division of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). The OMMP was created to administer the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA), a law passed in 1998 that protects “qualified” patients from state criminal prosecution for the production, possession or delivery of medical marijuana, if they comply with the requirements of the law.
On the Oregon Health Authority’s Oregon Medical Marijuana Program website, you’ll find more information about the OMMP, the OHA’s compliance with HIPAA in maintaining the OMMP patient registry, and details on who may act as a “primary caregiver” or “designated grower” for an OMMP patient.
