Fishing Expeditions:Law Enforcement Use of theOregon Medical MarijuanaProgram Registry
Presented by Jennifer AlexanderData analysis and presentation byRuss Belville, NORML Foundation
Complaints of LEO Abuse of PrivateOMMP Registry Database Information
OMMA specifies that law enforcement requests may be made
as necessary to
verify” cardholder status and lawenforcement “may
not release or use the information for anypurpose other than
verification” *ORS 475.331(2b) & (3)+
Washington County published maps of OMMP investigations. Sgt.
Thompson says “we are going against what the state
Polk County, Washington County, Douglas County, Jackson County
Held v. Hanlin
Sheriff Hanlin
“testified that his office checks the
database for every CHL applicant "[t]o determine whether or notthey use [a] controlled substance, specifically marijuana."Respondent's use of the database for that purpose was not
authorized by ORS 475.331.
“Compliance checks,” traffic stops, etc –
anecdotal stories
Analyzing the Data from OMMP vs.LEDS and Drug Crime Statistics
LEDS requests to the OMMP database represent
only after-hoursand weekend requests
that are tracked electronically. There are
“thousands” of hand
-written logs of requests during businesshours not reflected in these charts.
To get a sense of medical marijuana use in the state, we’ll show
where the greatest concentrations of patients live relative to theoverall county-by-county population.
We’ll look at LEDS OMMP requests vs. the overall patient
population per county.
We’ll then compare LEDS OMMP requests vs. the total number of 
drug crimes (not just marijuana) reported to the Oregon StatePolice (2008 figures, latest data available).
Counties with LEDS OMMP requests greatly exceeding the totalnumber of patients, total number of drug crimes, and occurring incounties of low patient proportions in their population couldindicate abuse of the registry access by law enforcement.
