An Oregon bill requiring marijuana businesses to “destroy” customer information after a certain period of time has been passed by the state’s House and Senate.
Senate Bill 863 was passed by the House of Representatives today with a 53 to 5 vote; it was passed by the Senate last month 21 to 6. It will soon be sent to Governor Kate Brown, who is expected to sign it into law. The proposal would prohibit marijuana retailers and medical marijuana dispensaries “from retaining identification information of consumers and registry identification cardholders for more than 48 hours after close of business on business day on which marijuana retailer or medical marijuana dispensary acquired information.”
The legislation would also prohibit prohibit marijuana retailers from “recording, retaining and transferring type of information that is contained on passport, driver license, military identification card or other identification card that bears picture of person.”
