Oregon: The OLCC has released a proposed new rule draft for random product testing
The OLCC has released a proposed new rule draft for random product testing.
Under the new rule, the Commission may require any licensee to submit a sample of their marijuana item for testing.
The Commission estimates that around 10% of licensees will be required to submit a sample in a given year. Based on fees for similar services in the marijuana industry, the Commission estimates that such a test will cost a licensee $2,000 dollars.
This rule is proposed to assist the OLCC and OHA in the ongoing investigation of the cause of EVALI cases in Oregon as well as to prevent potential future risks to public safety due to additives, adulterants, microbiological contamination, heavy metals, or other contaminants.
