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

The commission is tasked with determining:
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:
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.
