BEND, OR -- A local marijuana processor and retailer faces fines and suspension by the OLCC. The agency says Bend-based OreGrown failed to report a 2018 theft of seeds and clones by a co-owner who was being removed from the business, and did not appropriately update the Cannabis Tracking System.
Regulators also found problems with the company’s security cameras and marijuana items that were not properly tagged. The OLCC says the violations were especially egregious because some were intentional and others were repeated.
Justin Crawn reportedly took pot plants and seeds to his home, when he heard he was being removed from the business. He was required to return the stolen property and has surrendered his marijuana worker permit.
The company is ordered to either pay a $4,950 fine and serve a 98-day suspension or pay $15,510 with a 34-day suspension. For a look at the full report on OreGrown's violations and other companies facing penalties by the OLCC, click HERE.
