Changes Affecting OMMP Growers, Processors and Dispensaries

Changes are coming that affect OMMP growers (grow sites), processors and dispensaries.

During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 1057, which required 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, processors, dispensaries, and certain growers who decide to stay registered with OMMP are required to track the production, processing and transfer of all marijuana items utilizing the OLCC Cannabis Tracking System (CTS). A new fee will be collected by the OMMP for using CTS and transferred to the OLCC. Some growers will be exempt for tracking and reporting, while other growers will need to use the Oregon Medical Marijuana Online System (OMMOS) to report their inventory and transfers monthly.

Summary of SB 1057 Tracking Requirements

No Later than September 1, 2017: OMMP will notify registered growers, medical processors, and medical dispensaries that they must make a decision on whether to stay registered with OMMP and use the Cannabis Tracking System (CTS) or submit an application to OLCC.

No Later than December 1, 2017: Registered grow sites, medical processors, and medical dispensaries must notify OMMP if they intend to stay medical or become OLCC licensed. If no notification is received then the registration may not be renewed.

Before January 1, 2018: Registered growers, medical processors, and medical dispensaries that notified OMMP that they intend to move to OLCC must have submitted an application to OLCC. If no application is submitted to OLCC by the grow site, processor, or dispensary then their registration may not be renewed.

July 1, 2018 or before: A registered medical processor, medical dispensary, or a qualifying grow site must sign up for a CTS account, pay the required CTS fee, and start using CTS.

Note: Requirements for reporting inventory and transfers monthly to the program’s online medical marijuana system (OMMOS) will still be required for certain growers as explained below.

SB 1057 Timeline

Information for Growers

Election forms received after December 31, 2017 will not be accepted. If an election form was not received for a grow site, the grow site’s decision will default to them remaining registered with OMMP. All growers must comply with appropriate reporting and tracking requirements.

Either CTS or monthly reporting into OMMOS is required for most growers. Below is an explanation of who is exempt from tracking and reporting and who is required to report monthly in OMMOS or use CTS.

Exempt from CTS and Monthly Reporting

All items indicated below must be true in order to be exempt from all reporting and tracking requirements.

  • You are a patient only growing for yourself at your residence; AND
  • There are no more than 12 mature plants and 24 immature plants being grown at the grow site; AND
  • Not transferring to a medical processor or dispensary.

Must Report Monthly in OMMOS

If one of the following bullet points describes you, you are required to use OMMOS.

  • A patient growing for yourself at your residence, where there are not more than 12 mature plants at the grow site, and you are transferring to a medical processor or dispensary.
  • A patient growing for yourself at a grow site that is NOT your residence and there are not more than 12 mature plants at the grow site.
  • A grower is designated by a patient to grow for them at a grow site where there are not more than 12 mature plants and there is also a patient growing for themselves at the grow site.
  • A grow site that indicated through the SB 1057 election form process that they will transition over to OLCC and they have submitted an application to OLCC before January 1, 2018.*

If the grow site application submitted to OLCC is considered incomplete or is issued a proposed denial then a grow site that qualifies to use CTS as outlined above will be required to sign up within 30 days from being notified of the OLCC determination.

Must use Cannabis Tracking System (CTS)

If one of the following bullet points describes your grow site, you are required to use CTS.

  • A grow site where there are more than 12 mature plants.
  • A grower is designated by a patient to grow for them at a grow site where there are no patients growing for themselves, no matter the number of plants.

Information on how to sign up and pay the fee for CTS will be available soon.

Information for Processors and Dispensaries

Election forms received after December 31, 2017 will not be accepted. If an election form was not received for a processor or dispensary, the decision will default to remaining registered with OMMP and using CTS.

Processors and dispensaries that elected to stay with OMMP are required to sign up and use CTS. Additional information on how to sign up for CTS will be available soon.

Processors and dispensaries that elected to apply with OLCC, submitted an application before January 1, 2018 and are waiting for licensure must continue to report monthly into OMMOS. Your registration must be valid to continue operating. If your registration will expire before OLCC is able to act on your OLCC license application, and you want to continue operating, you must submit a complete renewal application to the program prior to expiration of your registration. If the application submitted to OLCC is considered incomplete or is issued a proposed denial then a processor or dispensary will be required to sign up and use CTS within 30 days from being notified of the OLCC determination.
