Oregon approves multiple changes to regulation of cannabis industry

Oregon has approved multiple changes to the regulation of the cannabis industry for the new year, including doubling how much marijuana customers can purchase and allowing home delivery across city and county lines.

In a Dec. 28 meeting, Oregon’s Liquor and Cannabis Commission approved new rules that officials say will help streamline oversight of the industry, decrease violations, expand choices for consumers and help prevent children from accessing hemp products containing THC, according to a news release from the agency. 

The changes are in response to the industry’s rapid growth, and will put Oregon more in alignment with other states on marijuana use rules as well as position the state in the export market if marijuana is legalized nationally, officials said. 

In his own words:One year in, Police Chief Trevor Womack talks trust, staffing, data and body cameras
