On June 29, 2021, Governor Brown signed into law SB408, which Oregon lawmakers passed earlier this month. The bill, sponsored by Senator Floyd Prozanski, focuses on regulatory modernization for Oregon’s maturing cannabis industry. Unique for this bill is that it was crafted by a coalition of the major cannabis industry associations, working with the OLCC to meet the needs of the evolving market and update regulations created when the market was first legalized. This coalition effort speaks volumes for the matured growth of Oregon’s Cannabis industry. “This represents the first major step toward aligning our state’s cannabis regulations with the changing reality of the industry and the priorities of Oregonians. We’re moving away from fear-based rules to those designed to help a modern industry succeed. Much is owed to the OLCC, the legislature, and the Governor’s office for engaging with us through this critical process. This is a great start.” Michael Getlin, Founder and Director, Oregon Industry Progress Association.
