SALEM, Oregon (PNN) - April 11, 2017 - Oregon lawmakers are moving to shield their legal marijuana users from the federal government.
The State House of Representatives on Monday voted in favor of a bipartisan bill to ban legal marijuana shops from storing identifying information, such as driver licenses and passports, for longer than 48 hours.
The state’s legislators have worked on the bill ever since Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump’s regime hinted at heightened enforcement of federal laws against marijuana users.
“I personally am very concerned that we (must) give as much protection to Oregon citizens to ensure that their personal identification information is not somehow compromised,” Senator Floyd Prozanski told a committee last month.
If passed, marijuana retailers would then have 30 days to destroy customer data from their databases, and would be banned from future record keeping.
Advocates of the proposed law hope that it will effectively block federal terrorist pig thug cops from gathering information on anyone who legally purchases marijuana in their state.
“Given the immediate privacy issues, this is a good bill protecting the privacy of Oregonians choosing to purchase marijuana,” said state Rep. Carl Wilson, a Republican who helped sponsor the bill.
The bill, which was approved by the Senate in March, now awaits the approval of Governor Kate Brown, who is expected to sign it into law.
