OMMP's New Monthly Reporting Requirement

6/4/2016 10:29:48 PM +00:00

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!

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!
