Oregon Fines Portland Marijuana Dispensary For Multiple Violations Related To Product Giveaways

OREGON: The state has fined a Portland marijuana dispensary $2,500 for allowing a vendor to give away marijuana concentrates and pre-rolled joints in the parking lot on the opening day of recreational marijuana sales, according to a stipulated settlement order.

The order states that Cannacea, located in Northeast Portland, allowed the giveaway of marijuana products in its parking lot and failed to check the identification of people receiving the products to ensure they were 21 or older or that they were medical marijuana patients.

The document also states the products being given away lacked proper labeling and were not in child-resistant packages.
