SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Twenty-two Oregon medical marijuana shops have now received state approval as Oregon continues to roll out its registry program.

The Oregon Health Authority reported 14 more dispensaries had been approved by late Friday, on top of the eight approved last week.

Portland has the most registered shops with nine, followed by Eugene with five. Bend and Salem now have two each, while Springfield, Corvallis and Hermiston all have one. One shop declined to have its location disclosed.

The agency has processed 102 of 301 applications submitted since March 3.

A total of 41 applicants have been granted provisional licenses until their security systems are in place, and 39 applications have been denied. Reasons for denial include incomplete information or locations within 1,000 feet of a school or another dispensary.
