Oregon Liquor Control Commission Approves Permanent Rules for Curbside Delivery
Portland, OR — PRESS RELEASE — At its regular monthly meeting on Sept. 11, 2020, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) approved permanent rules allowing licensed recreational marijuana retailers to continue curbside delivery transactions, and increased the marijuana flower purchase amount for OMMP cardholders and caregivers. The commission also approved ten marijuana violation stipulated settlement agreements.
Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the OLCC approved temporary rules designed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The change encouraged social distancing by allowing licensed marijuana retailers to conduct limited transactions outside but close to their physical location. Under the permanent rule, licensed retailers can continue to take orders and deliver product to a person outside the store and within 150 feet of the retailer’s licensed premises.
The commission believes this has proven to be an effective approach to limiting interactions and exposure to COVID. Although this rule is being made permanent due to the pandemic, commission staff will revisit this rule at a later date.
The permanent rules take effect Sept. 18, 2020.
On Sept. 18, 2020 the daily purchase limits for Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholders and caregivers return to 8 ounces of usable per day, with a limit of no more than 32 ounces of usable marijuana per month.
The commission also ratified the following violation fines and suspensions based on stipulated settlements (detailed information on specific cases can be found here on the OLCC website):
