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:
A registrant may not have advertising that:
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.
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.
