Oregon Approves Marijuana Delivery Services
Home delivery of marijuana will begin next year in Oregon after final versions of the rules for retail marijuana services were approved by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
The new rules permit marijuana retailers to deliver in the city in which they are licensed to operate. Businesses can only transport up to $100 worth of marijuana at a time.
The final version of the regulations will go into effect in January, 2016. Also under these new rules, employees at licensed facilities who are medical marijuana patients will be allowed to consume cannabis at work, provided they are not intoxicated.
The rules also set guidelines for production limits for cannabis growers.
There will four tiers of marijuana growers, based on size. Tier I for indoor growers allows up to 5,000 sq. ft. of space, while Tier II allows up to 10,000. For outdoor growers, a Tier one license will allow cultivation of 20,000 sq. ft, while a Tier II will allow for up to 40,000.
The regulations will also impose a seed-to-sale tracking system on marijuana that will be sold recreationally. This will allow regulators to know exactly how much marijuana is being produced, who is selling it, and whether businesses are following the rules and paying the proper amount in taxes.
