OLCC to Freeze New Marijuana Applications on June 15th

5/30/2018 5:04:13 PM +00:00

We communicated with Mark Pettinger OLCC Marijuana Spokesperson by email about the upcoming application freeze. 

  • Does this pause apply to all licenses types including applications for Marijuana Handlers cards?  It applies to all license types, but NOT Marijuana Worker Permits

  • Do would-be applicants still have until June 16th to get new applications in for review?  Would be applicants have until close of business Friday June 15th to submit an application and have considered in the current flow of submitted applications.  Beginning June 16th we’ll still accept applications, except we’re going to set them aside and won’t process them until we finish all those that we already have.

  • How long is this pause anticipated to take?  Sometime into 2019

 

The OLCC does not offically endorse any POS system but we are the only ones to give em a hug.

Fixed: Metrc Package Refresh

3/1/2018 2:22:51 PM +00:00

Our Metrc Refresh Packages functionality was unavailable for part of today. This happened because of ongoing changes to the METRC API.


METRC has been making changes to their API in a way that has occasionally affected OMMPOS functionality. Last month METRC made a change that affected the way we retrieve package information. It took us a week to respond to this sudden change. METRC made another change today that also affected Refreshing Packages. This time we addressed the change within 1 hour of being notified. Refreshing Metrc Packages works normally again.


We are committed to be the best POS system in Oregon and we pride ourselves on our rapid response to changes in the Oregon industry. Thank you for your support. - Raja Afrika (971) 276 - 3371

Oregon Secretary of State Marijuana Audit

2/22/2018 4:44:08 AM +00:00

See the source image

The Oregon Secretary of State conducted an audit of the OLCC and the Cannabis Tracking System (CTS). Below are some highlights from the audit.

"Many of the issues identified in the audit were well known to OLCC, however the work accomplished by vendors and the OLCC has created a strong knowledge base, a solid framework to build upon with IT systems that provide a greater degree of accountability and licensee oversight. Because of the major commitment of staff time, these IT systems have served the state well and at a moderate expense."

"The recreational marijuana program is still growing with more than1,200 new applications moving through our licensing approval process. Applicant interest in licensing continues to exceed expectation, cannabis supply is robust, and low consumer market prices are directly challenging illegal market sales in Oregon. As well, the recreational system’s growth in sales to people who hold medical cards shows the regulated system can play an important role in providing reliable access to medical marijuana products."

"The audit points to several data reporting compliance issues related to timely entry of data. The OLCC will be systematically issuing fines based on violations that can be proven by data recorded in the CTS system or the absence of data by failing to record it, such as not meeting a requirement to account for a marijuana crop’ moisture loss within 45 days of harvest. Further build out of CTS will provide staff the ability to be routinely alerted to this type of violation, and potentially trigger a licensee user alarm. The OLCC is exploring how modifying the IT system and requirements user the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), that protect due process, can be integrated to auto-generate citations based on compliance failures to properly and timely record data. Similar to a “speeding ticket,” with this type of sanction the accumulation of too many ticket would result in the loss of license. In the meantime, the OLCC is manually monitoring data for timely entry and analyzing it for potential action against violators."

OLCC Launches Marijuana Retailer Minor Decoy Checks

12/20/2017 3:17:21 PM +00:00

Bend Licensees Pass OLCC Check for Sales to Minors

Portland, OR -- The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has conducted the first of its statewide minor decoy operations to determine if marijuana license retailers are complying with state laws and OLCC regulations ensuring minors aren’t able to enter the business to purchase marijuana products.

On December 19, 2017 OLCC marijuana inspectors visited 20 marijuana retailers in central Oregon, and all of the 20 businesses visited in Bend and La Pine passed a check for prohibiting sales to a minor volunteer.

“That our licensed retailers in central Oregon scored 100 percent on refusal to sell marijuana to a minor is a sign that this segment of our regulated industry understands the importance of compliance,” said Steve Marks, Executive Director of the OLCC.  “As we continue these checks I hope that this result will be reflected across the state.”

Sale of marijuana products to anyone under the age of 21 is a violation that for a first offense could result in a 10 to 30 day license suspension, or a fine of $1650, depending on whether or not the sale is intentional.  Failure by a marijuana licensee, or its employee, to check a customer’s identification before the attempted purchase of a marijuana product is a violation that could result in a seven (7) day license suspension or a fine more than $1100. 

During the sales checks, a minor volunteer attempts to enter a licensed marijuana retailer and/or purchase marijuana products from a licensed business to see if staff are checking ID’s correctly and refusing entry to anyone under 21.  Commission inspectors supervise the minor volunteers.  The volunteers carry their own legal ID that identifies them as under 21 and do not disguise their age or lie to encourage the sale of marijuana.   The Oregon Driver license for a minor carries a red border around the picture with the words “Minor Until” followed by the date of his/her 21st birthday.

The OLCC tests licensed marijuana businesses throughout the year, with each licensed retailer receiving a minimum of one visit per year.  The OLCC offers a free training course on how to check ID’s and identify false identification.

“This is part of our stepped up compliance and enforcement activity,” said Marks.  “We’re working to make sure that all segments of our regulated market are living up to the requirements of their license, and the expectations Oregonians have that they will act responsibly and follow the law.”

  • A possible framework for future governance of the Oregon Medical Marijuana program;
  • Steps to address research on cannabis in areas of public health policy and public safety policy;
  • Agronomic and horticultural best practices;
  • Medical and pharmacopoeia best practices;

OLCC Cup Competition Rules - Compliance Education Bulletin

11/27/2017 2:46:32 AM +00:00

How to Enter Samples into a Cup Competition

Only Retailers can sell or give directly to the public. Producers, Processors, Wholesalers, and Labs cannot sell or gift to non-licensees.

The only compliant way for Cup Competition samples to be provided to judges is for the items to be purchased at an OLCC Retailer location. As a licensed producer or processor you can transfer items to an OLCC Retailer within Metrc, and those items can be purchased at cost by a judge or competition organizer for consumption in the judges’ or organizer’s personal residence. The retail store may charge a discounted price for the marijuana items or give it away free if the customer is an OMMP cardholder.

Most commonly, we have heard licensees say that they intend to use the “In-house Quality Control” adjustment reason in Metrc to enter samples into competition. This is not compliant. Using a licensee’s “quality control” allowance to remove product from the system and provide to individuals would be circumventing the rules and would not be a valid method of entering into a competition. Quality Control samples are intended for quality improvement purposes within a facility, not for providing free product to individuals off the licensed premises.

Any attempt to use adjustments – of any kind – in Metrc for purposes of entering samples into a cup competition would be a violation of OLCC rules.  

Booths at a Cup Competition

Under Oregon law, no consumption is allowed in a public place. Any location with an OLCC liquor license would be a public place, even if the venue is specifically reserved for a cannabis event. If the location is not licensed to sell liquor, whether it is considered “public” is determined by the local jurisdiction. For more information on what is and is not allowed regarding consumption, see OLCC’s “Consumption, Gifting, and Giveaways” guide.

However, with prior approval, an OLCC licensee can set up a booth at an event and have limited amounts of marijuana items on-site for display only. The event as a whole would operate as a “promotional event” in which OLCC licensees with prior approval may participate.

More information regarding promotional events, including how to apply and how to document in Metrc can be found in bulletin CE2017-10 on OLCC’s website.

Can OMMP Growers Sell to OLCC Dispensaries?

10/26/2017 1:25:37 PM +00:00

OMMP 2 OLCCCan OMMP Growers sell product to OLCC Dispensaries?

We called the OMMP to find out.

The OMMP directed us to the OLCC's Marijuana information hotline (503-872-5000).

When we called the OLCC hotline we got the following answer (paraphrased)

"Yes, this most recent legislative session did change the rules so that OMMP producers will be able to sell to OLCC Rec facilities. The rules have been updated but there are still no mechanisms in place to implement the new rules. Until we have a chance to update these mechanisms we will be operating under the old rules where OMMP is not allowed to sell to OLCC. We anticipate that we will have a chance to update this mechanisms around the beginning of the year 2018."

So, yes the rules have changed to permit OMMP Growers to sell to OLCC Dispensaries but you can't do it yet.

Compliance Education Bulletin: Marijuana Product Transfers

9/16/2017 8:16:08 PM +00:00

Marijuana Product Transfers

No licensee may receive marijuana items from outside the licensed OLCC system 

Download Bulletin CE2017-13 from the OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program website which illustrates what products can be transferred.

  • All marijuana items must be tracked and transferred within Metrc.
  • The only “unsourced” items that can be entered into Metrc are start-up inventory that has been approved by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, or producers’ immature plants and seeds during their first 90 days of licensure.
  • All license types can transfer waste items to each other; waste items must be tracked as waste in CTS and may never become a “usable” product.
  • All license types can make returns (the original product purchased) to the license they directly bought the product from.
  • A joint on its own is considered usable marijuana.
  • A joint with anything added, including kief, is considered a marijuana product. 

Each license type has specific privileges for the transfer of marijuana and marijuana products 

Download Bulletin CE2017-13 from the OLCC RMP website which illustrates what products can be transferred.

With Expanded Testing Capacity in Place, Sampling & Testing Procedure Reverts to 100 Percent Batch Testing

8/31/2017 12:24:16 AM +00:00

Beginning today, August 30, 2017, every batch of usable marijuana (flower and leaves) must be tested directly for pesticides according to the Oregon Health Authority’s testing rules in order to be compliant. This includes untested product that was collected for sampling prior to August 30.

Some temporary rules regarding the sampling and testing of usable marijuana  have expired, and Oregon Liquor Control Commission Recreational Marijuana Program licensees are required to follow updated OLCC and Oregon Health Authority rules.

This reminder follows an August 11, 2017 OLCC Compliance Bulletin CE2017-09 sent to Recreational Marijuana Program producer and laboratory licensees explaining the rules adjustment.  The bulletin is also posted on the OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program website.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission issued an order to limit pesticide testing of usable marijuana meant for retail sale to consumers on October 3, 2016.   At that time, OLCC staff found that there was insufficient lab capacity for 100% batch testing of usable marijuana for pesticides. On March 3, 2016, the Commission made a similar determination and extended temporary rules to allow for the continued practice of testing one-third of the batches.

More information can be found on the OHA medical marijuana website.

The Commission will continue to monitor market flow and respond to any issues that arise with the expiration of the temporary rule.

If you have questions please contact the OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program at marijuana@oregon.com

OMMP CTS

8/31/2017 12:14:26 AM +00:00

Subject: SB 1057 Decision and Tracking Requirement

During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Legislature passed SB 1057 which requires OMMP registered grow sites (except as exempted below), processors and dispensaries to decide to stay registered with OMMP or become licensed by OLCC. Registrants which remain registered with OMMP will be required to track the production, processing, and transfer of all marijuana items using the OLCC Cannabis Tracking System (CTS) and pay a new fee for using CTS.

Exemption: If you are a patient growing for yourself and there are no more than 12 mature plants and 24 immature plants at your grow site you are not required to track in CTS.

A notice of this new requirement and a form will be mailed August 30, 2017.

 Each registrant will be required to, no later than December 1, 2017, provide notice on a form prescribed by OMMP of their decision to:

  • Remain registered with OMMP, use the CTS and pay an additional fee of approximately $480 (additional info on CTS will be available in early 2018); or
  • Apply for a license with the OLCC. A complete application must be submitted to OLCC before January 1, 2018; or
  • Indicate they are a patient growing for themselves and there are no more than 12 mature plants and 24 immature plants at the grow site. A grow site where a patient is growing for themselves and where there are not more than 12 mature and 24 immature plants is exempt from CTS tracking.

 If a registrant does not notify OMMP of their decision by December 1, 2017, the registration will not be renewed.

 If the registrant notifies OMMP with the decision to get licensed with OLCC but do not apply with OLCC by January 1, 2018, the registration will not be renewed.

Additional Grower Info
All growers at a grow site must collectively make the decision to remain registered with OMMP or move to OLCC and submit only one form to OMMP. Submitting more than one form for a grow site may result in registration not being renewed.

METRC API Bulletin

7/12/2017 10:05:17 PM +00:00

Translation: If you make a big inventory goof using OMMPOS you have to use 1 of these 3 new adjustment reasons directly in METRC.

We have an important update. Three (3) new adjustment codes have been added into Metrc for licensee use. These adjustment codes are to be used by licensees when an error has occurred that creates a discrepancy between a licensee’s chosen system and Metrc, that requires an adjustment to be made to information in Metrc.     
 
• API Adjustment Error - (When an adjustment is made erroneously in both the API and in Metrc) Alaska, Colorado & Oregon

• API Conversion Error - (when amounts are not set up properly or aligned in the POS system and Metrc) Alaska, Colorado & Oregon
 
Licensees have been instructed to use these new adjustment codes when discrepancies exist between 3rd party systems and Metrc, as opposed to standard package adjustments that are designed for Licensees use to report errors when entering information into Metrc directly. Licensees have also been instructed to report any instances of instructions to ignore use of these adjustment codes by 3rd party solution providers. These codes are an important tool designed to help us define and work with our integration partners to resolve issues or discrepancies and help Licensees maintain compliance.

It's Our Anniversary

June 1st 2017 is our 2 year anniversary. When we signed up our first customer OMMPOS was just a very basic system for OHA dispenaries. From that time to this we became the first POS system in Oregon to be certified for Metrc. We were the first system in Oregon with compliant receipts and labels and the first system in Oregon to comply with the rapid changes in Oregon law. We have had over 50 Oregon dispenaries try OMMPOS and each new store provides vital feedback that has changed this system from its humble beginings into the best POS and Grow Management system for Oregon. Thank you to our Oregon community for making OMMPOS thrive!

Reminders on Marijuana Tax Compliance

5/12/2017 5:33:04 PM +00:00

Here are some helpful reminders from the Department of Revenue for staying in tax compliance and making payments:

 All licensed retailers must register their businesses for the marijuana tax program. You can register by either submitting a paper form or using our Revenue Online registration option at www.oregon.gov/dor/revenue-online. If your business isn’t registered, you can’t make payments with us because we won’t have a place to apply your payments.

Each retail location needs a separate registration, tax account, and quarterly tax return. You can access all of those accounts under a single Revenue Online login. If all locations use the same FEIN, this will occur by default, and you’ll be able to access all accounts as long as you can provide the information required for authentication. To access to those accounts, click “Add access to account” under the “I want to” menu.

If each location uses a different FEIN, you can access those as “third party” or “client” accounts from your main account. To access those accounts, click “Add third-party access” under the “I want to” menu.

Licensed retailers must file their returns electronically through Revenue Online. Returns are due quarterly, at the end of the month following the last day of the quarter. For example, the first-quarter returns are due on the last day of April. Returns must include total sales, by product and by month for both medical and recreational sales. It must also include the total amount of tax-exempt sales (medical). The system will then calculate the taxable sales and taxes due. This calculation gives you the opportunity to double-check your quarterly numbers.

Although returns are quarterly, payments are required monthly. You can pay in cash or by check or money order. You can mail check or money order payments, or you can deliver it person. We only accept cash payments at the main Department of Revenue building in Salem, and you’ll need an appointment. You can schedule an appointment by calling (503) 945-8050. Payments are due at the end of the month following the month of sales. For example, taxes collected in January are due by the end of February.

Here are the deadlines for 2017:

OLCC Approves Medical Bump-Up Canopy for Marijuana Producers

4/28/2017 5:48:57 AM +00:00

Establishes Sharing Framework between Producers and Patients

Portland, Oregon – The Oregon Liquor Control Commission today approved rules allowing growers licensed in Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana Program to grow marijuana specifically for Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholders.  Under this “medical bump-up” arrangement recreational producers will be allowed to grow additional canopy above what is allowed in their OLCC license.

The new rules allow producers to enter into agreements with OMMP cardholders, however a medical cardholder can only have one assigned grower.  Producers that decide to add medical bump up canopy can transfer useable marijuana to an OMMP cardholder.

If a cardholder allows, a producer may transfer excess to other cardholders and caregivers, and OMMP dispensaries and processors.  All production and transfer of excess product is required to be tracked in the Cannabis Tracking System (CTS). 

“This will be the first medically grown marijuana in Oregon under regulations that meet the compliance guidelines of the federal Cole Memo,” said Marvin Revoal, Acting Chair of the OLCC.  “It’s important that we keep legally produced marijuana from being diverted to the illegal market, and again Oregon’s leadership shows that both medical and recreational marijuana can be regulated together.”

The OLCC already allows the sale of medical grade marijuana products by its licensed retailers and those products amount to about 14% of sales in the OLCC regulated environment.  Under the bump-up rules up to 25% of the yield grown for an OMMP cardholder can be sold to OMMP processors and dispensaries.

Addressing the concern voiced by patients, doctors, and medical marijuana advocates that the three pound limit would create a medicine shortage for some patients, Commissioner Pamela Witherspoon called on the Commission to adopt an exception process for patients who need more medicine.

Steven Marks, the Commission’s Executive Director said the agency would monitor patients’ ability to obtain their medicine – especially those with serious illnesses, and act to ensure patient access to medicine either in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, or within the OLCC’s own rulemaking authority.

“This approach strikes a balance in that it will cover the need of the majority of OMMP cardholders,” said Steven Marks, Executive Director of the OLCC.  “At the same time the OLCC wants to help patients who are seriously ill be able to obtain whatever amount of cannabis-derived medicine they need to treat their illnesses and help them maintain or improve their quality of life.”

The OLCC will monitor the implementation of the bum-up canopy rules and if necessary adjust the rules as the agency learns more from producers and OMMP cardholders who participate in the bump-up program.  The bump-up rules take effect on May 1, 2017.

Now You Can Sell Without Tracking Customer Data

4/21/2017 12:34:54 PM +00:00

 Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 863 into law on April 17, 2017.

SB 863 prohibits marijuana retailers from recording, retaining or transferring information contained on a passport, driver’s license, military identification card or other identification card. 

We have updated OMMPOS so that you can make sales to customers without tracking their personal information. We have made our check-in queue optional. You can just jump straight into a sale without having to check-in a customer. You can even create an anonymous membership card to track customer loyalty.

We have added other updates like improved product pricing. Now you can specify the price of your products to include tax. OMMPOS will figure out the rest.

You can also track the weight of your jars when doing inventory audits.

Please give me a call if you have any questions.

Collection of Customer Data Ends; Previously Collected Information Must Be Destroyed

4/21/2017 12:31:33 PM +00:00

Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 863 into law on April 17, 2017.

SB 863 prohibits marijuana retailers from recording, retaining or transferring information contained on a passport, driver’s license, military identification card or other identification card. 

What are marijuana retailers required to do?

Beginning immediately retailers may NOT record or retain customer information gathered from a piece of official identification (e.g. driver’s license, passport) that could identify the customer.

Retailers are still required, prior to completing the sale of a marijuana item to a consumer, to verify that that the consumer has valid, unexpired government-issued photo identification and must verify that the consumer is 21 years of age or older.  See: OLCC Recreational Marijuana Rules (Retailer Operational Requirements: 845-025-2820)

This law does not change licensee reporting and inventory requirements.  Sales and inventory data must still be reported into Metrc daily including an Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) card number if selling to a patient or caregiver. 

Destruction of Previously Collected Consumer Information

On or before May 18, 2017 retailers must destroy any previously collected information that may be used to identify a consumer acquired through the production of a piece of legally described identification.  This includes any consumer information that was previously acquired with consent for the purposes of marketing. 

Licensees should NOT delete or destroy information in Metrc. This requirement only pertains to information recorded or retained outside of Metrc.

Exception to Prohibition for Collecting Consumer Information (Opt In) 

Going forward a retailer may retain the name and the contact information of a customer for marketing purposes only, if the retailer:

·       Asks the consumer if they may record the information for marketing purposes AND

·       The consumer agrees in writing to the information being used for marketing purposes.

 This consumer consent does NOT authorize the retailer to sell or transfer the consumer’s personal information.

Questions about the retailer implementation of SB 863 should be directed to the OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program at:  marijuana@oregon.gov or by calling 503-872-6366

Compliance Education Bulletin: Sales to Medical Card Holders; Discounted Marijuana Sales

4/3/2017 4:05:48 AM +00:00

Bulletin CE2017-05

Sales to Medical Cardholders

Sales to medical cardholders are not taxed

If you are a licensed retailer selling a marijuana item to an Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholder you may not change a tax.   Instead enter the OMMP card number in your Point of Sale system, or the Metrc Cannabis Tracking System, to verify the reason tax was not charged. 

Only retailers that have completed the form “Registration for Sale of Recreational Marijuana for Medical Purposes” are allowed to sale medical grade products.  Medical grade products come from OLCC licensed processors, but contain medical concentration limits; medical grade products can only be sold to OMMP cardholders.  Retailers that are registered for medical sales may also allow an OMMP cardholder, 18 years of age or older, inside their retail establishment. 

Discounting Marijuana Items

OLCC licensed retailers may discount marijuana items. 

Example: a retailer may offer a 20% discount for top shelf product.

The discount rules do not allow a marijuana item to be discounted in correlation with the purchase of another item.  Buy One, Get One Free (BOGO) and customer loyalty cards linked to marijuana products  are NOT allowed. 

Example: A retailer cannot offer buy 2 get 1 for free.

Example: A retailer cannot have a customer loyalty punch card where the customer buys 10 ounces of marijuana and receives the 11th ounce for free.  If a retailer wants to offer a loyalty punch card, it could be,"buy 10 ounces of marijuana and get a t-shirt or hat for free", because the free product is not marijuana. 

For More Information:

Compliance Education Bulletins can be found on the OLCC Recreational Marijuana website.

OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program Update Reviewed

2/3/2017 5:41:16 PM +00:00

 Yesterday the OLCC hosted a Marijuana Update meeting. The meeting was attended by approximately 70 Producers, Processors, Wholesalers and Retailers. During the meeting the OLCC explained the breakdown of rules and responsibility between organizations like the OLCC, OHA, DOA and ODOR. After each presenter there was a question and answer session that was very enlightening.
 
New Licenses and License Renewals
 
The OLCC reports that there is a backlog in processing the various applications for licensing. During the first year the OLCC pulled inspectors from the Liquor side of affairs to make up for the backlog of applications. Now those auxiliary resources are returning to normal duty so expect a slowdown in the time that it takes to process a new or renewal application.
 
For those licensees who have a renewal date pending the OLCC recommends that you apply for renewal sooner rather than later. There is a critical 20-day window for renewal. If you apply for license renewal with more than 20 days left on your license, then you can continue to operate even if it takes the OLCC more than 20 days to process your license renewal, however if there is less than 20 days left before you apply for renewal then you will have to close operations after your expiration date until the OLCC is able to process your renewal. Again, apply with more than 20 days on your license and keep operating. Apply with less than 20 days on your license and shut down when your license expires until after the OLCC can process your application.
 
METRC
 
The OLCC warms that there are a lot of reporting irregularities in METRC and that they will be beginning to crack down on these errors soon with fines. The example provided was that of the producer who harvested a plant 6 months ago and never applied a tag. Please be sure to keep your METRC reporting accurate and up-to-date to avoid penalties.
 
Pre-rolls
 
TJ Sheehy of the OLCC says that pre-rolls should always be weight-based. Many dispensaries log pre-rolls as unit or combined-each in METRC but this is incorrect. All pre-rolls should be weight-based.
 
Tags
 
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO APPLY YOUR OWN TAG OVER A VENDOR TAG. If you receive a package from a vendor and that package has a package tag you can use the METRC package tag in OMMPOS. You do not need to re-package packages received from Vendors.                                                                                                                      
 
Employees
 
The OLCC emphasized that it is the licensee’s responsibility to ensure that ALL employees of your organization are registered in METRC and that all employees who handle Marijuana possess a valid Marijuana Handler’s card.
 
For questions about the rules the OLCC recommends visiting WhatsLegalOregon.com
 
For question about how we can help you keep your dispensary compliant contact Raja (971) 276 – 3371 or visit us at http://ommpos.com

DEA BANS CBD? FALSE

12/16/2016 12:54:27 AM +00:00

Basically what is happening is an internal DEA accounting change in how they track Cannabis Extracts.

There appears to be a proliferation of misleading news with the headline :The DEA Just Banned CBD."

We searched the internet and have been unable to find this story on any major news outlets. It is my opinion that this news is false news or at least intentionally misleading.

Here is what we have been able to figure out with 15 minutes of searching with BING.

CBD being derived from Marijuana is a schedule 1 substance under Federal law. States like Oregon, California, Washington, Colorado and Massachusetts will have legal CBD products because Marijuana has been legalized recreationally in these states. In states where Marijuana is not recreationally or at least medically legal it would be illegal to possess CBD products.

Of course the postal service is a federal institution so sending CBD products through the post would violate federal law as would be transporting CBD or any other Marijuana containing product across state lines.

Basically nothing has changed.

We found this article describing the DEA Easing regulations for CBD research
DEA Eases Requirements for FDA-Approved Clinical Trials on Cannabidiol

DEA.gov / Headquarters News Releases, 12/23/15

and this source article with DEA commentary on Cannabis Extracts.
Rules - 2016 - Establishment of a New Drug Code

Take Deep Breaths. Hope this helps. This is my opinion and not legal advice.

Beginning on November 15, 2016 you can pay your taxes online

11/5/2016 2:11:10 AM +00:00

The Department of Revenue encourages you to visit its marijuana tax website for updates about impending changes to registration, return filing, and payment, particularly for businesses that have been licensed by OLCC.

http://www.oregon.gov/DOR/programs/businesses/Pages/marijuana.aspx

Beginning on November 15, 2016 you can pay your taxes, file your quarterly returns, and more with a Revenue Online account. With a Revenue Online account, you can also:

- Set up a payment plan.

- Add a power of attorney to your account.

- Send secure messages directly to the Department of Revenue.

- Check your account balances.

Once you become licensed with the OLCC and register with the Department of Revenue, you'll receive an introductory letter with information on how to sign up for a Revenue Online account. Because Revenue Online is a secure application, you'll need to validate your account before you can access your tax information.

All businesses licensed by OLCC are required to file their tax returns with the Department of Revenue through Revenue Online, so you'll want to make sure you're registered for the site well before the January 31, 2017 tax return deadline.

If you have any questions please contact the Department of Revenue by phone at: (503) 947-2597 or by email at: marijuanatax.dor@oregon.gov

Correction to the Monthly Tax Voucher

We determined that we were using an improper value in the monthly tax voucher. The effect being that the monthly tax voucher was reporting a double taxation. This would have resulted in an overpayment of your monthly taxes.

This error has been corrected. The quarterly tax report was reporting correct values. If you compare your total monthly payments to your Q3 quarterly report you should see the amount of your overpayment. You can report this overpayment on your quarterly return. Please let me know if you have any questions. - Raja (971) 276 - 3371

OLCC Releases Guidance on Switching From Medical Marijuana Dispensary to OLCC Retail

9/15/2016 11:30:17 PM +00:00

 

Switching From Medical Marijuana Dispensary to OLCC Retail?

 

Tax Rate Changes, New Tax Filing Process Are Coming

The Department of Revenue wants to help the marijuana industry understand the changes in the tax collection process if they convert from operating as an Oregon Health Authority medical marijuana dispensary to a marijuana retailer in the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) regulatory environment.

 

 

 

Different Tax Rates for OHA Dispensaries & OLCC Retailers

 

Once an OLCC license becomes effective, the taxes you collect on your customers’ purchases of marijuana and marijuana products will change. The "Early Start" rate now in place for medical marijuana dispensaries is 25 percent, but the retailer rate is 17 percent. You should charge your customers the lower 17 percent rate when your OLCC license takes effect.

 

 

 

Filing Tax Returns – Transitioning from Dispensary to Retail

 

Whether you remain a Medical Marijuana Dispensary or become a Marijuana Retailer you’re still responsible for filing tax returns with the Department of Revenue.

 

What and how you must file depends on when you transition. If your OLCC retailer license takes effect on October 1, 2016, you should electronically file your first retail tax return for the 4th quarter of 2016 on Revenue Online. You should also file your final return as a dispensary for the 3rd quarter of 2016 using Form OR-581.

 

If you’re transitioning at the end of 2016 and your final day of sales as a medical marijuana dispensary is December 31, 2016, and your OLCC retail license takes effect on January 1, 2017, you should electronically file your first retail tax return for first quarter 2017 using Revenue Online, and for the dispensary’s operation for the 4th quarter of 2016 file a Form OR-581.

 

For any other transition scenario, you’ll be required to file two returns for the 4th quarter: one on paper for the 25-percent tax rate and one electronically on Revenue Online for the 17 percent rate.

 

You will want to keep detailed sales records to track when your tax rate changed, so that you can accurately file reports for the two tax rates.

 

Please contact the Department of Revenue at marijuanatax.DOR@oregon.gov with any questions.

Packaging

Starting October 1, 2016, all marijuana items, except immature plants and seeds, must be packaged per OLCC packaging rules found in OAR 845-025-7000 to 845-025-7060.  Also see OAR 333-008-1200(8) and 333-008-1740(10).

This includes flower and all other marijuana products but excludes immature plants and seeds. A dispensary may use child-resistant exit packaging to comply with the rules. It is a business decision between the processor and the dispensary regarding who should provide the child-resistant packaging.   

A guide is available on the OLCC website that explains the packaging rules in more detail and reviews the pre-approval process. The OLCC opened the packaging pre-approval process on August 2, 2016. Please visit the OLCC website for more information: http://www.oregon.gov/olcc/marijuana/Pages/PackagingLabelingPreApproval.aspx

After December 31, 2017, if a dispensary wishes to continue selling marijuana items to adults 21 years of age and older and also to medical marijuana patients and caregivers at the same location, they must be licensed by OLCC. Please visit the OLCC website for information. www.marijuana.oregon.gov   

Dispensaries and Food Safety

On and after October 1, 2016, all dispensaries that sell edibles must obtain a food safety license from the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA). OAR 333-008-1200(9)

What does this mean?
