Oregon Cannabis Commission

Overview

The Oregon Cannabis Commission (OCC) was established in the 2017 legislative session through House Bill 2198. In 2018, Senate Bill 1544 amended the tasks of the OCC. 

The role and responsibility of the OCC is to:

  • Provide advice to the Oregon Health Authority with respect to the administration of ORS 475B.785 to 475B.949;
  • Provide advice to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission with respect to the administration of ORS 475B.010 to 475B.545, insofar as those statutes pertain to registry identification cardholders and designated primary caregivers, as those terms are defined in ORS 475B.791;
  • Develop a long-term strategic plan for ensuring that cannabis will remain a therapeutic option for persons with debilitating medical conditions as defined in ORS 475B.791;
  • Develop a long-term strategic plan for ensuring that cannabis will remain affordable for persons with debilitating medical conditions as defined in ORS 475B.791; and
  • Monitor and study federal laws, regulations and policies regarding marijuana.
