Measure 91 tasks the Oregon Liquor and Control Commission (OLCC) with implementing rules regarding the licensing and regulation of cultivation, manufacture, distribution, and sale of marijuana and marijuana items for adult use. Additionally, OLCC is responsible for rules regarding tracking, testing, and packaging for medical and adult use marijuana. Since the implementation of Measure 91, OLCC rules have been in constant flux. Our clients can rest easy knowing that Greenspoon Marder is well-informed with regards to these changes and aware of how they affect our client’s businesses. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) traditionally regulates the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP). Over time, the legislature has diverted more and more power from OHA to OLCC. While OLCC regulates tracking, testing, and packaging, OHA still regulates the licensing and operational compliance for medical marijuana businesses.
