Public Records

Please read through the information on this page to learn about the request process.

Some commonly requested files may already be published and available on our website (see Commonly Requested Records below).


OLCC will estimate the fee for your request. Do not send any money until OLCC has reviewed your request, estimated the cost, and sent you an invoice.

Many marijuana-related records are exempt from disclosure under ORS 475C.517. The OLCC does not release the following:
  • Addresses of producers, processors, and wholesalers
  • Information relating to security and operational plans
  • Information the Commission has determined is proprietary, such as a licensee's data in the Cannabis Tracking System (METRC).
Other statutory redactions are made according to ORS 192.340


To request public records, use the blue linked button below.

  • ​After your request is submitted, you will be contacted by OLCC staff within five business days acknowledging receipt of your request and assigning a Public Records Request (PRR) number.
  • If the scope of the request is overly broad or unclear, OLCC staff may request additional clarification before responding to the request.  Please be detailed and narrow of scope in your initial request.
  • If a requester fails to respond to inquiries for clarifications, cost estimates, or any other communication from OLCC within 60 days, the OLCC will close the request.
  • To follow-up on, provide context or clarification, or to withdraw an existing request, reference your PRR number (issued upon confirmation of the request) in the subject line and email:   OLCC.PublicRecords@oregon.gov





  • Payment must be made via check (payable to OLCC) or cash.

  • If the estimated fee is greater than $25.00, the OLCC will provide you with written notice of the estimated amount of the fee.
    • In such instances, the public records coordinator will not fulfill the request until receipt of confirmation in writing that the requestor wants to proceed despite the estimated cost.
    • An invoice will be sent upon confirmation of acceptance of the fee and processing of the request will resume upon receipt of payment.
  • If a payment is made and the request is processed under the estimated time, a refund of the balance will be processed.
  • If a payment is made for an estimated processing time invoice and the actual processing time goes over, an amended invoice will be sent for the balance due after the request is processed, before documents are released.
