First Marijuana Audit Oregon

First Marijuana Audit For Oregon Coming, So Get Your Paperwork Ready

Oregon’s enforcement of marijuana production and sales, run by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, will get its first audit. While an official look into how the state handles legal cannabis might seem threatening, it’s more about getting a clear view into what’s functioning and what needs to be improved in the state’s regulations. The audit will take an especially close look at how the state keeps track of a primarily cash-based industry, the effectiveness of financial regulations, whether regulators are keeping a close enough eye on the amount of cannabis and derivative products being produced, and whether or not the state […]

Tetra Cannabis Dispensary Visit

Well designed shops coming to a neighborhood near you Tetra cannabis recently opened up on SE Belmont so we stopped in to chat with the budtenders and take a look at the shop. Beyond the custom metal and glass shelves, the wood interior and homey neighborhood feeling. The first thing we noticed was the design shop sharing an address with the dispensary. Then it started to seep in why this place had such well-designed menus and flower descriptions. For as much as we treasure cannabis for its aesthetics, some shops are still hanging black light posters. While others are taking […]

Oregon Marijuana Tested Pesticides

All Oregon Pot Must Now Be Tested For Pesticides

As of August 30th, 2017, all cannabis product batches must be tested for pesticides according to the Oregon Health Authority guidelines. This comes after temporary regulations on testing expired and in the face of findings that far more pesticides were found in products that were making their way to consumers than was considered safe. The previous temporary regulations had reduced testing requirements to only required one-third of batches of usable marijuana within every harvest lot in October of 2016, primarily due to insufficient lab capacity. According to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, “Since that time, significant changes have occurred that have increased the […]

Gov. Kate Brown Defends Legal Cannabis In Letter To Jeff Sessions

Gov. Kate Brown – “The document was not accurate, not validated, outdated and the Oregon State Police did not endorse the conclusions.” Those were the words Oregon Governor Kate Brown used in reference to a recent letter from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in which he made assertions that not all of the states with legal recreational cannabis were complying with federal guidelines.

Oregon Prohibits Cannabis Strain Names

11 Cannabis Strain Names Are Now Prohibited in Oregon

Earlier this month, the the Oregon Liquor Control Commission announced that it had clarified laws regarding cannabis strain names in the state. Though they didn’t name all strain names that were prohibited , they did name a number of them. The purpose of the legislation is to avoid strain names that might be appealing to minors: it prohibits names featuring the names of children’s toys or characters, those named after children’s food products, and those with “misleading names.” It is important to note before we get scared that we’ll lose some well-loved strains (Girl Scout Cookies, which was the sixth most […]

Oregon Man Fined For Using Robotic Mannequins To Advertise Dispensary

The fines are part of a newly revised Wood Village sign code, which now bans “portable signs”. Aaron Michelsen, the owner of NW Compassion Medical Center and Fabulicious Cupcakes, which are housed in the same building, was fined a total of $3,000 for signs the small town considered to be in violation of the code. He was charged $1,000 each for two mannequins that were touting signs that said, “Got Chronic.” and […]
