Oregon Governor Signs Law Prohibiting Landlords From Discriminating Against Medical Marijuana Patients

0

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has signed legislation, Senate Bill 970, prohibiting landlords from taking discriminatory action against those who either use medical cannabis or possess cannabis-related convictions.

The measure states that a landlord may not take into consideration an applicant’s “status as a medical marijuana patient” or whether they have a “conviction based solely on the use or possession of marijuana.”

The new law takes effect on January 1, 2020.
