Great strides have been made in the legalization of Marijuana; Columbia River Herbals wants to keep what so many have worked hard to accomplish both locally and statewide which is why we strive to follow all the rules and regulations set forth whether we agree with them or not. Please assist us by following the rules and respect our long term commitment to the continued Legalization of Marijuana for both Medical and Recreational use.
Below are a couple of the most common areas of misunderstanding.

OLCC RULES AND REGULATIONS
(FROM THE OLCC WEBSITE FAQ’S)
Q: How much marijuana can I sell to a customer?
A: A retailer may not sell more than the following amounts to an individual at any one time or within one day:
• One ounce of usable marijuana to recreational consumers;
• 24 ounces of usable marijuana to registry identification cardholders and designated primary caregivers pursuant to the requirements of OAR 845-025-2900;
• 16 ounces of a cannabinoid product in solid form;
• 72 ounces of a cannabinoid product in liquid form;
• Five grams of cannabinoid extracts or concentrates, whether sold alone or contained in an inhalant delivery system;
• Four immature marijuana plants; and
• Ten marijuana seeds.
The concentration limits for some marijuana items differ if being sold to a recreational versus a medical customer. Refer to OAR 333-007-0210, Table 1 for recreational products and OAR 333-007-0220, Table 2 for medical products for the concentration limits.
Q: Can I offer discounts to recreational customers and OMMP cardholders? What about employee or veteran discounts?
A: OLCC retailers can offer discounts, however there are restrictions. Retailers can’t:
• Provide free marijuana items to a recreational consumer.
• Sell or give away pressurized containers of butane or other materials that could be used in the home production of marijuana extracts.
• Discount a marijuana item if the retail sale of the marijuana is made in conjunction with the retail sale of any other items, including other marijuana items. (This means promotions such as “buy one marijuana items, get one discounted marijuana item” are prohibited.)
• Sell a marijuana item at a nominal price for promotional purposes.
Retailers may sell marijuana items tax free to OMMP patient and caregiver cardholders at a discounted price or provide marijuana items to those people free of charge. These transactions must be recorded as “Patient” transactions in CTS and the person’s medical marijuana registry ID number must be record. As long as the above restrictions are followed, employee or veteran discounts are permitted.
