New Proposed Marijuana Rules Don't Excite Some Dispensaries

Beginning January 4th, the plant smoked in something like this--will be taxed across the state, in Talent, Oregon, Wednesday, December 30th, 2015. (KTVL/Ariana Rakhshani).

TALENT, Ore. -- Some dispensaries said the Oregon Health Authority is trying to sneak in new laws.

The OHA proposed adopting some laws that were originally only temporary, like giving every customer a warning about the dangers of children or pregnant women smoking marijuana.

Other new proposed laws include showing proof dispensaries are charging the 25 percent tax--which goes into effect on Monday.

"I think the state of Oregon is really giving the cannabis industry a chance to prove ourselves, and show the world that we can be really good contributing members of society," Talent Health Club's Manager Andrew Robison said. "On the other hand, I think that because we are forced to prove ourselves, some of the laws are quite burdensome."

Despite the laws, Robison said Talent Health Club will continue to follow whatever gets passed, and has high hopes for what is to come in 2016.
