Medical Marijuana Growers

OMMP growers are individuals designated by a patient to produce marijuana for the patient. The patient may designate themselves or another person as their grower.

Grow Site Fee

The grow site registration fee is $200.

WHO MUST PAY

Growers must pay the grow site registration fee IF they are:

  • Growing for another person; or
  • Growing at a site other than their home; or
  • Growing more than 12 plants; or
  • Transferring excess product to processors or dispensaries.

TO BE EXEMPT from paying the grow site registration fee, ALL of the following must be true:

  1. You are growing only for yourself; and
  2. You are growing at your own residence where there are 12 or fewer mature plants; and
  3. You are not transferring product to an OHA processing site or dispensary. (OAR 333-008-0630)

WHEN AND HOW TO PAY

  • Payment is due when the patient is applying for the first time, renewing their registration, or making a change to designate a new grower.
  • OMMP will notify a grower when a patient submits a new or renewal application that lists them as the grower.
  • The notification will instruct you to sign-in to your online account and pay the grower fee.
  • Online payment can only be made with a credit or debit card.
  • The grower card will not be issued until the grow site registration fee payment is received. If the payment is not received by the due date, the grower and grow site will be removed.
  • The grower card will be mailed to the grower after the grow site registration fee payment is received.

Reporting Requirements

  • Some growers are required to make monthly reports of transfers and onsite inventory. Visit our Reporting Requirements page for details.
