Governor Kitzhaber: Marijuana or daycare

Ore. -- Governor John Kitzhaber is taking steps to keep medical marijuana cardholders from operating home-based child care centers.

Right now, five Oregon home-based daycare's are owned by people who have medical marijuana cards.

According to a spokesperson for Kitzhaber's office the governor is asking the group that oversees early childhood education to make people choose between their business and cannabis.    

The State Office of Child Care has looked at medical marijuana as a private health matter, with providers abiding by certain conditions attached to cannabis use.
