Medical Marijuana Revenues More Than Doubled After Fee Increase

Between October 2011 and June 2012, the state brought in more than $7.5 million in fees from medical marijuana cards

July 27, 2012 -- When the state legislature raised the annual fee for Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards from $100 to $200, it did so in hopes that public health coffers would increase accordingly: based on budget numbers released by Kathleen Vidoloff of the Oregon Health Authority, the state's budget for the 2011-13 biennium anticipates a total of $12 million in revenue from the program – with $5.3 million supporting the marijuana program and $6.7 million supporting other public health programs.
