California expert tapped for OLCC marijuana packaging subcommittee


LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Kush Bottles (, North America’s premier supplier of customizable child-resistant packaging solutions and accessories for the legal cannabis industry, announced today that Ben Wu, the company’s president, was named to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission Recreational Marijuana Rules Advisory Technical Subcommittee on Packaging. Wu is considered one of the nation’s leading authorities on compliance issues relating to packaging, labeling, and child-resistance.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) is tasked with creating sensible regulations, and has enlisted the assistance of industry experts in a variety of disciplines to provide expert insight, balance, and expertise. Rules Advisory Committees have been formed in packaging, licensing, growing, retailing, and extract manufacturing.

Wu believes that his experience having acquired and managed numerous companies, coupled with an understanding of the specific nuances of the cannabis industry, helps him understand the need to balance strong regulations within the confines of practical economics. He has analyzed the cannabis regulatory process in virtually every state with a legal marijuana program, and can identify policies that have been problematic and have led to market destabilization.

“Ben is a leader in the industry, and an asset to our company and to our clients,” said Nick Kovacevich, Co-Founder and CEO of Kush Bottles, Inc. “Having Ben on the OLCC Board will help give our customers important insight and added value, as we will have a correct reading and immediate notification on any packaging-related regulation or update,” he stated. “With our key executives working directly with government officials and regulators, our customers can be assured that they receive the most accurate, up-to-date information that impacts their operations, as well as compliant products to help their business thrive.”
