BEND, OR -- A Bend-based marijuana producer has lost its state license after the OLCC says it found 13 violations. Those allegations include failing to enter data into the state’s inventory tracking system, not tagging some plants at all, and blacking out entries into the visitors log-book.
According to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which overseas the state's recreational pot industry, High Cascade Farms reported two plants were destroyed due to pests. But pot plants tagged with the same numbers were recovered from a duplex in northeast Bend, last March, after an explosion caused by a Butane Honey Oil operation. The OLCC says David Paulsen, who was burned during that explosion, had an undisclosed ownership interest in the business.
Another plant was reportedly destroyed because of mildew, when it was actually in a drying room. The company is also accused of removing the suspension notice from the front door of the business. Click HERE to read the full report from the OLCC.
High Cascade Farms is owned by Byzantium Corp. It's President is listed as Charles Ringo, a Bend-based attorney.
