The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) will be offering an overview of its new online reporting system pertaining to medical marijuana products.
According to articles published by The Oregon Cannabis Connection and Salem-News.com, The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) at the Oregon Health Authority has prepared and scheduled a series of public meetings across the state to present its new online inventory reporting system for marijuana and medical marijuana products. See below for a list of when and where the presentations will be held.
The new reporting rules took effect March 1, 2016 (under OAR 333-008-0630, 333-008-1248 and 333-008-1830) and they will now mandate that growers, dispensaries and processors report information about the production and transfer of marijuana to OMMP.
To execute this, the OMMP program has formulated a new mandatory “inventory reporting system” that will be enforced to track the transfer of marijuana and medical marijuana products to dispensaries. In a OHA news release, they explained the presentations will cover, “guidance and training on how to use the system, what information must be reported, and clarification on transfer rules.”
Salem-News.com cited that the first online submission is due July 10, 2016, for any transfers that took place during June 2016. Following the initial online submission, reporting is due on a monthly basis by the 10th of each month.
During May and June, the OMMP staff will provide various in-person state-wide presentations on the OMMP inventory reporting system. The presentations will supply direction and training on how to use the system, what information must be reported, and clarification on transfer rules.
The presentations also will show growers how to register online. Each presentation will last about 45 minutes, with time afterward to assist growers with setting up online accounts.
The presentations and trainings will occur on the following dates and locations:
- May 24–Josephine County Public Library, 200 NW C St., Grants Pass, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Presentations: 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m.
