Make a Complaint
Most businesses that sell alcohol or marijuana obey the laws and want to be good neighbors. But sometimes problems do occur.
Public safety is our first priority. If you have information on a business that is not obeying laws, we want to know. If you have a complaint about a business that sells alcohol or marijuana, please fill out a Complaint Form and return it to the nearest OLCC office. An inspector will read your report and decide what action to take.
We can enforce the liquor and marijuana laws best when people with a complaint identify themselves and are willing to testify about the incident. We will also take complaints from people who want to remain anonymous or do not want to testify.
