Josephine County, Ore. — Local medical marijuana growers were given a crash course on the latest rules from state officials on Tuesday.
Representatives from the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program, or the O.M.M.P., held two workshops at the library in Grants Pass.
They went over new rules for reporting marijuana inventory for growers and producers online. New legislation requires that all medical marijuana products be tracked and counted beginning next month.
While many attendees understand the importance of following the new regulations, some find the new system frustrating.
Medical Marijuana Grower Trout Costco said, “A lot of unclear answers, a lot of questions that we have and oh we don’t know the answers.”
“Its new for us and we realize its new for them. Its new regulation, so it’s going to take time,” said Carole Yann with the O.M.M.P.
Tuesday’s meeting was just one of many the O.M.M.P will hold to explain the new rules statewide. They will also stop in Eugene, Medford, and Newport.
Medford’s meeting is Friday at 10:00 a.m. at the library downtown.
