Oregon seeks citizen volunteers to help shape recreational marijuana policy – OregonLive.com
Would you like to help shape Oregon’s recreational marijuana policy? The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is accepting applications for its rules advisory committee, 10 to 15 member panel that will help set rules for everything from marijuana production to retail sales.
The OLCC wants certain interests represented on the committee, including local government, law enforcement, marijuana growers, processors, testing labs, retailers, edibles manufacturers and someone from the group that drafted and campaigned for the legalization ballot measure.
OLCC commissioners also want several members of the general public to sit on the panel.
Another dozen subcommittees are planned. Those are expected to have about six or so members with expertise in advertising, law enforcement, marijuana production, marijuana extracts, product labeling, retail sales, security, testing and local government issues.
Members will be appointed in mid-March. The rules committee will hold its first meeting in April, with monthly meetings to follow.
