During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 1057, which requires OMMP growers (grow sites), processors and dispensaries to make a decision on whether they will stay registered with OMMP or become licensed by OLCC. In addition, growers, processors and dispensaries who decide to stay registered with OMMP will be required to track the production, processing and transfer of all marijuana items utilizing the OLCC Cannabis Tracking System (CTS). A new OMMP fee will be charged for using the CTS.
