Oregon lawmakers vote to protect marijuana user identity info from feds

• By Oscar Pascual

The 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, reports the Associated Press.

The state's legislators have worked on the bill ever since President Donald Trump's administration hinted at heightened enforcement of federal laws against marijuana users.

"I personally am very concerned that we 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.
