It looks as if lawmakers in Oregon have made it abundantly clear that the newly enacted law allowing adults to consume marijuana for recreational purposes does not include doing so in places such as cafes or bars.
Oregon’s lawmakers have done so by expanding the Oregon Indoor Clean Air Act to include inhaling cannabinoids or cannabis.
The legislators tweaked the language within House Bill 2546 to better define what the regulation means by “inhalant”.
Here’s how HB 2546 now clarifies said term: “Nicotine, a cannabinoid or any other substance that’s inhaled into a person’s respiratory system.”
Although there’s only a few cannabis cafes that are currently in operation throughout Oregon, as of the first of January said businesses will be banned statewide by law.
What a buzzkill.
