WIRE: Oregon announces approval process for hemp in the OLCC system

From the Oregon Liquor Control Commission:

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission recently adopted rules for the regulation of hemp and hemp products that enter the OLCC licensed recreational marijuana system. The rules took effect December 28, 2017.

On or before Friday, January 5, 2018 the OLCC will publish the administrative process and forms for existing OLCC marijuana licensed processors, and Oregon Department of Agriculture approved hemp growers and handlers, to follow to obtain approval to bring hemp into the OLCC system.

The framework for the OLCC’s hemp rules were developed after the passage of Oregon Senate Bill 1015. The OLCC held meetings in August and October 2017 with members of the hemp industry to discuss, review and adjust proposed rules.

The OLCC held a public hearing on the proposed rules on November 15, 2017, and a public comment period extended after the hearing to closure on November 29, 2017..

OLCC marijuana licensees and other interested parties will be notified when the administrative process and forms are posted to the OLCC recreational marijuana website.
