The Oregon Liquor Control Commission yesterday approved last minute changes to their draft rules for recreational licensing, softening their residency requirements to make room for Legislative changes and building more flexibility into their canopy restrictions. The amendments will also allow OMMP cardholders who are employed at OLCC licensed stores to consume their medicine at their place of employment. Read the approved rules here.
Oregon Cannabis Association members have given generously of their time and effort to serve on OLCC's recreational marijuana rules advisory committee and its many subcommittees. You can read the advisory committee's recommendations here (.PDF) and see the Oregon Cannabis Association's comments on the draft rules here (.PDF).
We very much appreciate the OLCC's efforts to develop a fair and transparent regulatory structure and the many avenues for comment and participation on the rulemaking process the agency has offered to all stakeholders, from the statewide community meetings last winter through yesterday's vote. We look forward to continuing to work together to develop a safe and vibrant cannabis market that brings jobs and prosperity to Oregon.
