OREGON: The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) will be holding a Public Hearing to address amendments to OAR 845-025-2070 – Pesticides, Fertilizers and Agricultural Chemicals.
In January, OLCC temporarily amended 845-025-2070 to align the rule with the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s Marijuana Compliance Assistance Program. This program allows marijuana producers who participate in the program to accept responsibility for potential illegal pesticide applications.
A producer that accepts responsibility will receive a notice of warning from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission for their first violation instead of a Category I violation. Any subsequent violations would result in a Category I violation, as the Assistance program is only available to first time violators.
