Grants Pass, OR-- State authorities are considering restoring discounts for the poor and people on Social Security as part of a doubling of medical marijuana fees authorized by the Legislature.

An advisory panel met Monday to work out specifics of the higher fees that are to be set by the Oregon Health Authority later this month.

The state budget includes language authorizing increased fees to raise more than $6 million for things like clean water and school health programs. Lawmakers had originally envisioned doubling the basic fee and eliminating most discounts.

Bob Wolfe of Oregon Marijuana Policy Initiative says medical marijuana advocates were able to get the program to consider trimming the overall patient registration increase to $180, rather than $200, and restoring discounts for the poor and Social Security recipients.
