This is the last week at Marijuana Software for Jeff and Jack's internship. They have accomplished an incredible amount in just 6 weeks and I really recommend them to anyone in Portland area that needs tech help.

Jeff Casto

Jeff Casto had never built a website before when he started his position here at Marijuana Software; he has never used OMMPOS before. Over the course of 6 weeks I watched Jeff learn how to build a website (He built our new help website help.ommpos.com) and he was able to master OMMPOS to the point where is as able to help others. Jeff's real passions are tech support and networks security. If you are a Portland area business I strongly recommend reaching out to Jeff for onsite technical support.

Bottle Bill information from OLCC

9/15/2018 2:49:14 PM +00:00

How does Oregon’s beverage container redemption system work? In general, a distributor charges a 10-cent deposit when it delivers beverages covered under Oregon’s Bottle Bill to a store, then the store charges a 10-cent deposit when it sells those beverages to a customer.  When a customer returns the empty containers to a store or redemption center, the store pays the customer 10 cents per container, and when the store returns the empty containers to a distributor, the distributor pays 10 cents per container to the stores.    


What is the refund value per container? The Oregon refund value on redeemable containers is 10 cents. 


What kinds of beverages are included in Oregon’s Bottle Bill and have a 10-cent refund value?  The beverages listed below have a 10-cent refund value if they are in glass, metal, or plastic bottles or cans in the following sizes:
Three liters or less (these are beverages that were included in the Bottle Bill prior to January 1, 2018):

● waters
● carbonated soft drinks
● beer and malt beverages (includes alcoholic kombucha made with malt syrup; if it is made with cane sugar it is considered to be wine and is excluded from the Bottle Bill)

From 4 ounces up to and including 1.5 liters (these beverages were added to the Bottle Bill on January 1, 2018): ● other non-alcoholic beverages (includes but is not limited to tea, coffee, juice, energy and sports drinks, and non-alcoholic kombucha) ● other alcoholic beverages (includes but is not limited to hard cider up to 8.5% alcohol by volume; excludes distilled liquor and wine) ● marijuana beverages

Important Information About OLCC Notices

7/29/2018 3:04:21 PM +00:00

Recently many of our retailers received notices from the OLCC indicating that one or more over the limit sales had occurred.

The notice instructed you to correct the problem in Metrc. We have received many phone calls about what these notices means and why they were sent.

Here are the quick answers.

Why Did I Receive an Email From the OLCC?

1. The vendor that you received the product from manifested that product incorrectly in METRC.

2. OMMPOS adjustments get reported to METRC as $0 sales. An adjustment over the daily limit might have caused this letter.

How Can I Fix this Issue?

If this issue was caused by an OMMPOS adjustment

  • Look the adjustment record under METRC > Packages
  • Void the sale.
  • Adjust the package directly in METRC.
  • Archive the package in OMMPOS if appropriate.


If this issue was caused by the vendor manifesting the package incorrectly,

  • Contact the vendor and have them correct that ITEM in METRC. According to the OLCC this will cause a cascade correction that will fix the issue for all licensees impacted. 


What if I Still Have Questions?

You can contact us by phone, email or text message with questions  Monday - Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. 

You can also contact the OLCC directly with questions @ marijuana@oregon.gov

Thank You For Your Business!,

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.”

For more information or to sign up for e-mail updates specific to the Commission, please visit the new Cannabis Commission webpage at: healthoregon.org/cannabiscommission

The Oregon Cannabis Commission was established in the 2017 legislative session through House Bill 2198

The commission is tasked with determining:

  • 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;
  • A long-term plan to ensure cannabis will remain affordable to persons with debilitating medial conditions; and
  • Monitor and study federal laws, regulations and policies regarding marijuana.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks!,

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

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.

OLCC Marijuana Labeling Rules

7/6/2016 7:46:36 PM +00:00

All products sold from your dispensary have to have labels compliant with OAR 333-007-0010 to 333-007-0110. The OLCC requires non-generic labels (labels containing your company logo) to be pre-approved before you can use them on your products. OMMPOS produces generic labels that do not require OLCC pre-approval and are automatically complaiant. Use OMMPOS to produce compliant labels with both OHA and OLCC regulations automatically.

First Metrc CTS Certified POS System in Oregon

5/26/2016 12:29:43 AM +00:00

All licensees in Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana system are required to use the Cannabis Tracking  System (CTS).  Oregon law requires the CTS be used to ensure that marijuana and marijuana products  grown within the licensed system do not leak out to the unregulated market.

The API allows Oregon licensees who prefer to transmit daily CTS data electronically to update the state  data system without the need for additional updating by manual data entry.

We just received word today from Metrc that OMMPOS is the first licensed Point of Sale System in Oregon! To celebrate we are offering a deep discount on our service; $50 per month (regularly $150 per month). Sign up now and take advantage of this great price!
