OLCC speaks out on co-locating medical and recreational marijuana sales
PORTLAND, OR – Recreational and #$%$ should not be sold at the same retail outlets unless both products are tracked and tested in the same way, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission said today in a message to the Oregon Legislature.
The request was approved by all five Commission members as part of a memo to legislators that identified potential gaps in Measure 91, the recreational marijuana measure passed by voters in November.
“OLCC does not want to be responsible for the co-location of medical and recreational operations unless the medical side is run in a manner consistent with federal guidelines,” said OLCC Chairman Rob Patridge.
Federal guidelines require that states that have legalized recreational pot ensure that marijuana does not move into the illegal market or across state lines.
In implementing the recreational marijuana law, the OLCC will use a “seed-to-sale” system to track marijuana from licensed growers to processors, wholesalers and, eventually, retail outlets.
Oregon’s #$%$ program, currently administered by the Oregon Health Authority, has no tracking system.
I think 2015 will be a good time to accumulate. So far I am at about 35 thousand shares. My goal 100 thousand before 2016 when the recreational world will be unleashed. It is going to be a slow grow scenario IMHO. But growth if will be.
I added more today as well. I am still underwater with and average cost in the 9's. I am trying to accumulate 100 thousand shares before the run up. The biggest downside would be a new regime in Washington that would enforce federal law. Other than that, there is nothing but upside. Might take two years to hit a buck (or a drive on a lonesome highway- Ha) but I think it will happen.
