House Bill 3460 "directs [the] Oregon Health Authority to establish a registration system for medical marijuana facilities." Such facilities exist presently in the state but are unregulated and are subject to state and local prosecution.

Oregonians initially authorized the physician-supervised use of cannabis in 1998. However, the law limits patients' access to cannabis to either home-cultivation or cultivation by a designated caregiver. Passage of HB 3460 will provide authorized patients with legal, state-sanctioned, above-ground safe access to their medicine.

Full text of the measure is here.
