Report says Oregon needs separate agency to regulate pot, current oversight inadequate

Report says Oregon needs separate agency to regulate pot, current oversight inadequate

Oregon needs an independent state agency to regulate marijuana rather than relying on three disparate agencies, according to draft recommendations prepared by the Oregon Cannabis Commission.

The state needs to “provide a unified and consistent vision on cannabis regulation,” the report states. The cannabis commission is part of the Oregon Health Authority.

As it stands, marijuana is regulated by three agencies — the OHA, Oregon Liquor Control Commission and Oregon Department of Agriculture — whose powers and responsibilities extend far beyond pot into public health, alcohol and crop services.
