Can OMMP Growers Sell to OLCC Dispensaries?

10/26/2017

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

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

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

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

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

6/1/2017

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!

Sincerely,

Reminders on Marijuana Tax Compliance

5/12/2017

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

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.

Product Pricing Updated

4/26/2017

We recently updated the product procing to automatically include tax. After talking to a number of you we understood that we needed to make this feature optional. We have reverted pricing back to the pre-tax price by default. If you would like to enter your product prices to include tax login to the store settings and click the "Include Tax in Price" option.

There is also a new Inventory Report on the Reports page that combines Stock and Inventory in one view.

Now You Can Sell Without Tracking Customer Data

4/21/2017

 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.

Thanks!,

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

4/21/2017

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

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.

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

OLCC Advertising Restrictions

4/3/2017

Bulletin CE2017-03

What are the restrictions in advertising your cannabis business?  

Advertising is publicizing the trade name of a licensee together with words or symbols referring to marijuana or publicizing the brand name of marijuana or a marijuana product.

 Marijuana advertising may not:

 ·       Contain statements that are deceptive, false, or misleading;

 ·       Contain any content that can reasonably be considered to target individuals under the age of 21;

 ·       Encourages the transportation of marijuana items across state lines;

 ·       Assert that marijuana items are safe because they are regulated by the Commission or have  been tested by a certified laboratory or otherwise make claims that any government agency endorses or supports marijuana;

 ·       Make claims that recreational marijuana has curative or therapeutic effects;

 ·       Display consumption of marijuana items;

 ·       Contain material that encourages the use of marijuana because of its intoxicating effect;  

 ·       Contain material that encourages excessive or rapid consumption.

 Advertisements through print, billboard, television, radio and internet must contain the following statements (this does not apply to advertising on apparel):

 Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under the influence of this drug

 For use only by adults twenty-one years of age and older

 Keep out of reach of children

If the OLCC receives complaints about advertising we will investigate.  You should be prepared to verify you are not breaking any of the advertising rules located in Division 25 Administrative Rules.  If you are advertising through television, radio, billboards, print media or internet you must have verification no more than 30% of your viewing audience in under the age of 21.

Hemp Derived Products

4/3/2017

Bulletin CE2017-04

Rules related to production, processing and retail sale of products derived from hemp

A producer that wants to grow industrial hemp on the same piece of land where they hold an OLCC producer license must provide the OLCC with a “Hemp Control Plan”, this plan will need to be approved before you can start hemp production.  Hemp production will not be allowed on the licensed area of the property. 

A processor cannot process industrial hemp at an OLCC licensed facility.   Hemp based products cannot be added to marijuana products; this is considered an adulterant and is not allowed under current rules.  If a processor wants to process hemp based products they are required to do so at a separate facility that is not licensed by the OLCC. 

A wholesaler cannot have hemp based products at their OLCC licensed facility.  If a wholesaler wishes to handle hemp based products they must do so as a separate business from an unlicensed location. 

A retailer may sell products derived from hemp at a licensed location, but the products must meet all testing, packaging and labeling rules.  It would be in the retailer’s best interest to request copies of lab results with the product to ensure the hemp can authentically identified as such.  The hemp based products are not entered into METRC and the marijuana tax does not apply to their sale.

For More Information:

Refer to OLCC’s Administrative Rules on Recreational Marijuana, which can be found on our website in the Division 25 rules.  If you haven’t already subscribed, we recommend that you sign up for the OLCC’s GovDelivery list.  The OLCC uses this list to send notifications of public meetings, Commission meetings, and rule changes. If you have questions regarding the content of this bulletin, please contact the OLCC at marijuana@oregon.gov or (503) 872-5000 option 1.

Which Cities Implemented the 3% Tax?

3/9/2017

 

In November 2016, voters in many municipalities approved local marijuana taxes of 3 percent. Many of those municipalities decided to have us collect those taxes on their behalf. A list of those municipalities is available on our website.

Starting in with February’s payment for taxes collected in January: If your business is located in a municipality where we’re (DOR) responsible for the collection of the tax, you’ll include both your state and local taxes in your monthly payment. Using the marijuana tax payment voucher will help you determine your state and local taxes due. You can also print a voucher from your Revenue Online account (the same account you use to file your quarterly returns). When you put your monthly sales information into the quarterly return form, Revenue Online will automatically generate payment vouchers. We’ll apply the payments appropriately to your state and local taxes due after you file your quarterly return and we validate the information provided with your monthly payments.

If your business is located in a municipality that’s collecting its own taxes (Local), contact the municipality to find out how to file and pay your local taxes. You’re still required to make your pay monthly and file quarterly for your state taxes, regardless of how the local tax is being administered. If you're not sure if your local government has a marijuana tax, contact them as soon as possible to ensure you’re collecting the appropriate taxes from customers at the time of purchase.

We’ll continue to update our list as more municipalities determine how they’ll administer their local tax. Municipalities can change whether they have us collect on their behalf, but that change can only be made at the beginning or end of a calendar quarter. The local tax collection list on our website should be finalized by January 20 and will be in effect for first quarter 2017 payments (February, March, April) and return filing (April).

Thank you for your time and cooperation. Please contact us if you have any questions about local tax collections or marijuana tax requirements in general. You can also visit our website at www.oregon.gov/dor/marijuana for more information about Oregon’s marijuana tax.

OLCC Recreational Marijuana Program Update Reviewed

2/3/2017

 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

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

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

10/13/2016

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

 

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.

OHA Releases Guidelines on Advertising

8/22/2016

INFORMATION BULLETIN 2016-24 

August 12, 2016  

To:  Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, Processors, and Interested Parties 

From:   Oregon Medical Marijuana Program 

Subject:  Advertising Requirements and Restrictions  

The Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) would like to inform all dispensaries, processors, growers and interested parties of advertising requirements and restrictions. These rules apply to all forms of advertising. Rules regarding advertising may be found under OAR 333-008-2070. http://www.healthoregon.org/ommprules  

All advertising by a registrant must include the following statements:

  • Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under the influence of marijuana. 
  • Keep marijuana out of the reach of children.  

 A registrant may not have advertising that:

  •  Contains statements that are deceptive, false, or misleading. 
  •  Contains any content that can reasonably be considered to target minors;
    •  This includes but is not limited to using cartoon characters, toys, or similar images and items typically marketed towards minors in the advertisement. 
  •  Specifically encourages the transportation of marijuana items across state lines. 
  •  Assert that marijuana items are safe or safer for reasons including but not limited to because they are regulated by the Authority or have been tested by a certified laboratory. 
  • Make claims that a marijuana item has curative or therapeutic effects unless the claim is supported by the totality of publicly available scientific evidence (including evidence from well-designed studies conducted in a manner consistent with generally recognized scientific procedures and principles) and for which there is significant scientific agreement among experts qualified by scientific training and experience to evaluate such claims; 
    • This includes explicit or suggested claims related to a disease or condition. Examples are “relieves symptoms of depression” or “cures cancer”.
    • Unsubstantiated health claims cannot be used as part of a company’s business name.  
  •  Show consumption of marijuana items. 

A registrant may not make any deceptive, false, or misleading assertions or statements on any product, any sign, or any document provided to a patient, caregiver, or to an individual.  

If a registrant is found to be in violation of any of the advertising rules, OMMP will notify the registrant and specify a reasonable time period for the registrant to remove any sign, display or advertisement. If the sign, display or advertisement is not removed or an advertising issue continues, the registrant will be issued civil penalties of up to $500 a day or may have their registration suspended.

OMMP's New Monthly Reporting Requirement

6/4/2016

Bottom Line: If you are a dispensary, grower or processor, the OMMP has a new report for you to fill out every month. The new OMMP reporting website is http://ommpsystem.oregon.gov. This reporting website is not a POS; it is a portal for dispensaries, growers and processors to log into every month to upload data about their transfers. The Good News: If you are a dispensary just log into OMMPOS and click our OMMP Transfers Report to get this done in under 10 minutes.

Yesterday, June 3rd was one of a series of OMMP sponsored meetings. This meeting took place at the public library in Seaside, Oregon. There were about 40 people in attendance at the first 10:00 am session and only 4 people in the 2nd 12:00 pm session.

The new Website is not a POS

We reviewed a slide show presentation of the new reporting website. This reporting website is not a POS, it is a website that allows growers, processors and dispensaries upload monthly information about transfers.

What to Report

  • Useable Marijuana
  • Cannabinoid Edibles
  • Cannabinoid Topicals
  • Cannabinoid Tinctures
  • Cannabinoid Capsules
  • Cannabinoid Suppositories
  • Cannabinoid Transdermal Patches
  • And Cannabinoid products other than the products list above
  • Cannabinoid concentrates in solid and liquid form
  • Cannabinoid Extracts in Solid and Liquid Form
  • Quantity of immature marijuana plants
  • Quantity of Seeds

The OMMP representatives then answered a lot of questions posed by the many growers, processors and dispensary owners in the room. Here are the highlights from the meeting:

Who Needs to Report
  • Growers
    • Who are not growing for themselves
    • Or who grow at a grow site address where there are more than 12 mature plants
    • Or grow at a grow site that is not the patient’s residence
    • Or who sell excess useable medical marijuana, seed or immature plants to OHA medical processors or medical dispensaries.
  • Processors
  • Dispensaries

When are Reports Due?

  • Reporting began June 1st 2016 and is due on the 10th of each month. 
  • The first report for the month of June is due on July 1st. Growers, Processors and Dispensaries are then responsible for sending the OMMP a report each month due on the 10th of the month.
Will this be on the test?
  • We heard from the OMMP that the purpose of these reports is to begin recording data so that a year or more down the line they can begin to form some ideas about trends and perhaps use those trends to inform policy.
  • When asked will these reports lead to audits the reply was that non-compliance, meaning failure to report would be the first largest factor in who would be audited. Again, those people who should report but fail to will likely be audited. The fees for failure to report are stiff. Up to $500 per day.

* Here is the key bit, and I will probably re-type this at the top of the article. Dispensaries get special treatment here. Because the OMMP's system is not quite yet setup to receive dispensary transfer information the OMMP will accept manual records (excel files) from dispensaries for the time being.

OMMPOS is working now to create an OMMP Transfer Report to make this process a 1-button click. Stay tuned to be updated when this new report is ready to go.


Thank you to the hard working staff over at the OMMP!

Recreational Edibles and Concentrates Sales Allowed on June 2nd 2016

6/1/2016

Effective June 2, 2016, registered medical marijuana dispensaries that are participating in early start retail sales may sell expanded limited marijuana retail products. The expansion of limited marijuana retail sales include: 

  • Sale of one low-dose unit of a cannabinoid edible to a retail customer per day. A “lowdose cannabinoid edible” means a cannabinoid edible that has no more than 15 mg of THC in a unit.  
    • A single low-dose unit of a cannabinoid edible may contain multiple edibles or a single edible so long as the total THC in the unit does not exceed 15 mg THC.  
    • “Unit” means a package for sale. 
  • Sale of one “prefilled receptacle of cannabinoid extract” to a retail customer per day that contains no more than 1,000 milligrams of THC.  

    • "Prefilled receptacle of cannabinoid extract" means a single use cartridge prefilled with a cannabinoid extract by itself.

      • The receptacle could be any container that is pre-filled before sale.  
      • The receptacle may not be refillable. 
      • The receptacle may not contain more than 1000 mg THC.  
      • A cannabinoid product that is an extract with any kind of additional ingredient or cutting agent is by definition not an extract and may not be sold during early retail sales. Only the extract by itself can be sold during early retail sales.   
      • Pursuant to ORS 475B.410(5), extracts are defined as a substance obtained by separating cannabinoids from marijuana by:  (a) A chemical extraction process using a hydrocarbon-based solvent, such as butane, hexane or propane; (b) A chemical extraction process using the hydrocarbon-based solvent carbon dioxide, if the process uses high heat or pressure.

  • Sales of non-psychoactive medical cannabinoid topicals which contain no more than 6% of THC that does not affect the mind or mental process.  To determine 6% THC in a topical the cannabinoid results will first need to be determined as a concentration (i.e. mg/L or ug/g) and that number can be turned into a percentage with total product weight calculated with % moisture. This conversion will have to be made after using the acid derivative equation in OAR 333-064-0100. 
  • Cannabinoid concentrates and cannabinoid products defined in ORS 475B.410 are not included in limited marijuana retail sales and may not be sold to retail consumers during the early start period.
