Oregon Regulators Extend Cannabis Delivery

Permalink Report to webmaster

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will extend delivery while the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and also took steps to ban certain additives from cannabis vape products.

Portland, Ore, June 18, 2020 -PRESS RELEASE- At its regular monthly meeting on June 18, 2020, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission moved to extend the ability of licensed cannabis retailers to continue curbside delivery, and took the first step towards adopting rules that would ban non-cannabis additives from inhalable cannabis products. Commissioners also approved six marijuana violation stipulated settlement agreements.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the OLCC, in order to promote social distancing required under Governor Kate Brown’s executive orders, approved a temporary rule allowing licensed marijuana retailers to make “curbside delivery” within the immediate vicinity of their licensed retail store. That temporary rule expires in September 2020 and cannot be extended with another temporary rule.

Because the duration of the pandemic remains unknown, measures aimed at accommodating social distancing requirements and minimizing person-to-person contact remain critical to protecting public health. The proposed rule provides licensed marijuana retailers flexibility in how they can deliver to consumers at their licensed premises.

In the fall of 2019, several Oregonians suffered from the outbreak of vaping-associated lung injury linked in part to inhalable cannabis products.  As of March, 2020, Oregon had 23 reported cases of VALI, including two fatalities. VALI has been tentatively linked to some additives combined with cannabis oil.
