OLCC's mission is to support businesses, public safety, and community livability through education and the enforcement of liquor and marijuana laws.

The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) is the agency responsible for regulating the sale and service of alcoholic beverages in Oregon by administering the state's Liquor Control Act and regulating the production, processing and sale of recreational marijuana in Oregon through the Control, Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act. The agency also regulates the production, processing and sale of medical products sold to Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholders in OLCC licensed marijuana retail shops. 

  • OLCC licenses and regulates the operation of the recreational marijuana industry in Oregon. OLCC's recreational marijuana program is exclusively authorized to make recreational and medical grade marijuana available to consumers and licensed businesses through retail marijuana stores. The program also tracks the growing, transporting, processing and selling of recreational marijuana products.
  • OLCC is responsible for the tracking of any OMMP grow (producer) that is registered to produce marijuana for three or more patients, OMMP processing sites and OMMP dispensaries. The Oregon Health Authority administers the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.
  • OLCC also administers Oregon's Bottle Bill. The Bottle Bill requires that redeemable beverage containers sold in Oregon have a 10-cent refund value, and that stores and redemption centers redeem empty containers.
