(PORTLAND, Ore.) - In the 2016 Legislative Session, the Legislature passed SB 1511 which allows for a stay on plant limits for medical marijuana growers applying to be licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC).

In order to be eligible for the stay on plant limits, a medical marijuana grower must do the following:

  • Have submitted a producer application to the OLCC on or before April 1, 2016.
  • Send notice of intent to hold an OLCC production license using the form letter found on the OMMP website to each patient for whom marijuana is being produced at the grow site address.
  • Submit the following to the OMMP:
    • Proof that the applicant has sent notice, by certified mail with return receipt request, to each patient.
    • Stay of Plant Limits Notification form.
    • A statement that the medical grower has filed a completed application with the OLCC, including the date submitted, to produce marijuana at the medical marijuana grow site address.

Forms are available on the OMMP website under the Grow Site forms section at: http://public.health.oregon.gov/DiseasesConditions/ChronicDisease/MedicalMarijuanaProgram/Pages/Form-Library.aspx

Documents should be mailed to: OMMP, Grow Site Unit, PO Box 14450, Portland, OR 97293-0450

Once a producer license is issued by the OLCC to the grower, all seeds, immature marijuana plants, mature marijuana plants and useable marijuana in the grower’s possession may belong to the grower if the grower provided just compensation to any patient registered at the grow site who requested to be paid.

The OMMP will not be able to issue any registrations for a grow site address that is licensed by the OLCC.

Any questions regarding the process for stay on plant limits should be directed to mmg.online@state.or.us
