Child Care Rules Update

On January 29th, the Early Learning Council passed permanent rules related to the use of marijuana in child care facilities. As has been the case since the temporary rules passed in August, a licensed child care provider cannot be the holder of a registered Oregon Medical Marijuana Program card. These permanent rules clarify that the consumption of marijuana, medical or recreational, during child care hours or when child care children are present is prohibited.

Review the rule changes here.
