Oregon Marijuana: Amended Rules for Residency Mean Busywork for Lawyers

Vince Sliwoski

A few weeks back, we wrote about Oregon residency requirementscontained in last month’s OLCC rules for Oregon marijuana businesses. Even for us lawyers, those rules were somewhat opaque. This may be attributable to the fact that the legislature gave OLCC very little guidance other than the HB 3400 requirement that “an applicant listed on an application… has been a resident of this state for two or more years.”

When the dust settled, the basic idea appeared to be that a licensed entity has to be at least 51% owned by a two-year Oregon resident, in one manner or another. Still, the rules adopted on October 22 had some issues as to who can apply (along with a few other issues, which aren’t addressed here). Last Friday, OLCC met to discuss some proposed amendments to the rules, and it adopted a few key changes regarding residency and the application process.
