Oregon lawmakers vote to shield marijuana users' info from feds

SALEM -- Oregon state lawmakers who fear heightened marijuana enforcement by federal agents overwhelmingly approved Monday a proposal to protect pot users from having their identities or cannabis-buying habits from being divulged by the dispensary shops that make buying pre-rolled joints and "magic" brownies as easy as grabbing a bottle of whiskey from the liquor store.

The bipartisan proposal would protect pot consumers by abolishing a common business practice in this Pacific Northwest state where marijuana dispensaries often keep a digital paper trail of their recreational pot customers' names, birthdates, addresses and other personal information. The data is gleaned from their driver's licenses, passports or whatever other form of ID they present at the door to prove they're at least 21 as required by law.

The data is often collected without customers' consent or knowledge. It is stored away as proprietary information the businesses use mostly for marketing and customer service purposes, such as linking their driver's license number with every pot product they buy so dispensary employees are better able to help out during their next visit.

The measure that passed 53-5 now heads to Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who is expected to sign it into law.

1. Sessions is the 5th grade milk monitor all the girls laughed at.

So, in his so called adult life he is gonna get back at the cool kids.

In high school he couldn't get laid to save his life, or in college, and has been pissed about it ever since.

I fully expect to see federal raids of homes and pot dispensaries as well as detention camps for put users along side the 30,000 or so immigrants they are going to be arresting soon with a major deportation force.

America is gone, for good. We could recover but not with the SC in the hands of fascists and progressives threatening to go 3rd party again.
