Oregon’s lawmakers can no longer use a previous non-violent marijuana conviction as means to refuse to rent to someone. Landlords also cannot refuse a rental to a medical marijuana patient. Senate Bill 970 applies to any type of property rental in the state of Oregon.
Marinas can’t interfere with boat renters or owners either, Oregon Live reported. Interference and manufactured home communities can’t interfere with subletting or real estate agent choice in some situations either. The bill is on its way to Governor Kate Brown’s desk for her signature.
Oregon also moved on Senate Bill 420, which allows previously convicted Oregonians to request that their convictions be set aside for some marijuana convictions that are no longer considered a crime in the state. That bill will receive a final vote in the coming days.
