The Oregon Legislature meets for 5 months every odd numbered year and for 1 month ever even numbered year. Through the 2017 legislative session, there was a Joint Committee dedicated to the implementation of a regulated cannabis industry that does not violate federal enforcement priorities. Moving forward, the Joint Committee is disbanded, but the legislature will continue to push forward laws, albeit at a slower pace, that affect the industry. Our attorneys are involved with legislators, policy-makers, and industry groups to ensure that drastic policy change does not occur without regard to how it affects our clients.
Whether you are already involved in Oregon’s medical and adult use cannabis market or are exploring new business opportunities, Greenspoon Marder will continue to monitor legal developments and advocate on behalf of industry participants at the state, federal and local levels.
