OLCC Imposes Moratorium on New Pot Businesses

SALEM, OR -- Oregon’s Liquor and Cannabis Commission is no longer processing new marijuana licenses.

 

The ban is in response to legislation passed in the last session and signed by Governor Brown April fourth. The new law establishes a moratorium on all marijuana license types from January 1, 2022 - March 31, 2024. There is an exception for labs, which are still allowed to apply for a new license. 

 

Pot businesses who applied for a license this year, before the law was signed, will be refunded the $250 application fee. 

 

Lawmakers said the ban was necessary due to a crowded marketplace.
