Oregon MMJ Growers May Face Stricter Rules

Oregon medical cannabis cultivators may face stricter reporting requirements and plant restrictions under a proposal by lawmakers who say the changes are needed to avoid the pitfalls facing the medical cannabis industry in nearby Washington State.

The measure would cut in half the number of plants allowed at MMJ grow facilities to 12 in residential areas and 48 in non-residential areas, according to the Bend Bulletin.

Opponents of the measure say it would limit accessibility and plant diversity, while lawmakers say the restrictions would keep marijuana from the black market.

The amendment also would give the Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Liquor Control Commission the ability to inspect cultivation facilities for compliance, the newspaper reported.

Growers with up to 96 plants in non-residential areas and 24 plants in residential areas prior to Jan. 1 would be grandfathered in until their totals drop.
