OLCC brings marijuana listening sessions to Portland area this week

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will bring its marijuana listening sessions to the Portland area this week. Community members are invited to share their hopes and concerns about marijuana regulation in Oregon this Thursday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Washington Square in Tigard and Friday from 4-6 p.m. at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas.

“Hearing firsthand from community members has been invaluable as OLCC begins to implement Oregon’s recreational marijuana law,” said OLCC Chairman Rob Patridge. “We want to hear from residents of Central Oregon and around the state about what they think marijuana regulation should look like.”

The 11 listening sessions being held around the state are the first steps in a yearlong rulemaking process that will include meetings of the Commission and rules advisory committee meetings. The first seven meetings held in Baker City, Pendleton, Salem, Eugene, Ashland, Klamath Falls and Bend have drawn a total of more than 1,800 people.

“OLCC is committed to a transparent and inclusive public process to help us implement the law in a way that protects children, keeps our communities safe, creates economic opportunity and brings the recreational marijuana industry into the regulated market,” Patridge said.

Under the new law, possession of recreational marijuana becomes legal on July 1 of this year. The OLCC must begin accepting applications for commercial licenses next January, with retail stores to open by late 2016.
