Examining the New Oregon Cannabis Export Bill and Its Effects on the State's Marijuana Production

Bill 582 has passed the Oregon Senate and now its on its way to the House, where lawmakers will vote. If passed, the states will be able to export its cannabis products to other states. However, for the bill to fully take effect, the federal government would need to give its approval. According to Adam Smith, the founder of Craft Cannabis Alliance

“We need some indication from the federal government that allows this to happen. We know we can’t do it without that.”

Casey Houlihan, the Executive Director of Oregon Retailers of Cannabis Association (ORCA), stated

“Oregon is already one of the leading exporters of cannabis in the nation, and it has been for decades. We want those sales to be legal and regulated and taxed. The solution is fairly simple: We need a framework for exporting that excess supply into other states and countries as soon as possible. There’s not just a surplus of cannabis here – we have a massive wealth of knowledge, talent, experience, and skill that results in our state producing the highest quality cannabis in the world.”

Further, in Oregon, the state’s permanent rules concerning hemp are in effect. The Department of Agriculture adopted its permanent version on May 15. The permanent rules include clarification of requirements for individuals making retails sales of industrial hemp in the state, changing the testing requirements for CBD and THC potency, adopting a fee-schedule for pre-harvest THC testing, and more.
