Oregon Cannabis Commission


The Oregon Cannabis Commission (OCC) was established in the 2017 legislative session through House Bill 2198.

The role and responsibilities of the Commission is to provide advice to the Oregon Health Authority with respect to the administration of ORS475B.400 to 475B.525; and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission with respect to the administration of ORS475B.010 to 475B.395, as those statutes pertain to registry identification cardholders and primary caregivers.

The commission is tasked with determining:

  • A possible framework for future governance of the Oregon Medical Marijuana program;
  • Steps to address research on cannabis in areas of public health policy and public safety policy;
  • Agronomic and horticultural best practices;
  • Medical and pharmacopoeia best practices;
  • A long-term plan to ensure cannabis will remain affordable to persons with debilitating medial conditions; and
  • Monitor and study federal laws, regulations and policies regarding marijuana.
