Oregon Health Authority is considering a proposal for a fee hike for medical marijuana growers to $200 annually for every patient they grow for. At present, the state charges only $50.

According to Oregon Health Authority this proposal for a fee hike is due to the recent changes that expanded the health authority’s oversight of production and processing. The medical marijuana revenue is expected to increase from $1.3M to $5.2M in the 2015-2017 budget cycle.

For some patients though, the increase in annual fee for growers that they are proposing is unreasonable and will cause a drop in number of patients in Oregon due to affordability.

    I’m a medical grower in Oregon, and I’m totally pro-cannabis. I must say, though, that I think the complaints are bs. Typically, the grower pays these fees FOR the patients, and any grower who can actually grow a quality product should be able to afford this without batting an eye.
