A new law that went into effect in January allows more attending health care providers who have primary responsibility for the care and treatment of a person diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition to recommend medical marijuana to a patient. In May 2021, the Oregon Legislature passed HB 3369, which expanded the definition of attending provider under the rules for the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP). After the new year, attending providers allowed to recommend medical marijuana now include:
  • Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), licensed under ORS chapter 677.
  • Physician Assistant licensed under ORS 677.505 to 677.525.
  • Nurse Practitioner licensed under ORS 678.375 to 678.390.

In a paper published last week in the journal Frontiers in Pain Research, researchers from Israel stated that cannabis could be a promising alternative to the current standard opioid pain relief offered to cancer patients, which can cause addiction and other negative side effects. Medicinal cannabis use also has side effects, ranging from nausea and weakness to psychosis.
