OLCC Begins Listening Tour With Marijuana Industry

Bend Session Set for Tuesday July 9th

OREGON: The Oregon Liquor Control Commission launches its first in a series of listening sessions with the marijuana industry this Tuesday, July 9, 2019 in Bend.

The listening session will be held at the Riverhouse Convention Center from 6 PM to 9 PM.

The listening sessions provide an informal setting for Commissioners to learn about the issues facing the marijuana industry.

In particular the Commission wants to hear from the marijuana industry on: the Producer License moratorium (Senate Bill 218), exporting, social consumption, and changes to the Marijuana Program.

The OLCC will hold four additional  listening sessions for the marijuana industry in:  Ashland on July 17, Eugene on July 30, Ontario on August 6, and in Portland on August 12.

The Commission will also hold its regularly scheduled July 18, 2019 meeting at Southern Oregon University.

Marijuana Listening Tour: Oregon Liquor Control Commission Announces Two Stops In Eastern Oregon

OREGON:  The day after Oregon voters said yes to legalized marijuana last fall, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission chairman pledged to hit the road to hear what Oregonians have to say about what the industry should look like.

The agency is still pinning down dates and location for seven of the nine stops in the statewide “listening tour,” but the first two are already set: Baker City and Pendleton.

The liquor control commission will hold a meeting at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 22 at the Baker City Armory, 1740 Campbell St. It will meet at 7 p.m. that day at the Pendleton Convention Center, 1601 Westgate St.

Future stops are planned in Eugene, Bend, Salem, Portland, Ashland, Klamath Falls and the Oregon Coast. The details of those stops are still being worked out, said Karynn Fish, a spokeswoman for marijuana programs at the liquor control commission.
