OLCC Update: OHA OMMP Producer Plant Count Transfer Limits
Update: July 7, 2017
he Oregon Liquor Control Commission is providing updated guidance on the legally acceptable plant transfer limits for medical marijuana growers transitioning into the OLCC regulated system.
Oregon’s legislature has passed and Governor Kate Brown has signed into law several pieces of legislation (Senate Bill 56 & Senate Bill 1057) regarding the number of immature plants that an OHA-registered medical marijuana grow site may produce.
SB 56 was signed by the Governor on June 23, 2017. For OMMP growers, who had paid and submitted an application for an OLCC producer license prior to or on June 23, 2017, Section 10 of the legislation allows them to transfer in unlimited immature plants; this transfer provision would previously have been allowed before the passage of SB 1057.
SECTION 10. The limitations on the number of immature marijuana plants that may be located at an address as set forth in ORS 475B.428 (3) to (6) do not apply, except as provided by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission by rule, to a premises for which an application has been made under ORS 475B.040 on or before the effective date of this 2017 Act for a license to produce marijuana under ORS 475B.070 until the license is issued or the application is denied.
Any producer applicant that applied after June 23rd will need to follow the current law, outlined in OLCC bulletin CE2017-08.
Section 37 of SB 1057 put in place specific limits on the number of immature plants that an OHA-registered medical marijuana grow site may produce. Specifically:
SB 1057 §37(2)(b) A person who is designated to produce marijuana by a registry identification cardholder may produce no more than six mature marijuana plants and no more than 12 immature marijuana plants for a registry identification cardholder who designates the person to produce marijuana.
The OLCC can only approve the transfer of no more than 12 immature plants per patient on an Inventory Transfer Request for a recreational marijuana producer license application, submitted after June 23, 2017.
