With the passage of HB 3000, a lot is about to change in Oregon’s hemp industry. One of the more immediate changes registered hemp growers may notice is additional enforcement action in areas of the state where illegal grows and “hot” hemp has become a large concern over the past year or so. In July, the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) announced that, along with the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA), it would be conducting field tests of registered hemp grows throughout the state, looking for illegal marijuana being grown under the guise of being hemp. Hemp that is found to test over the legal limits for THC could be subject to destruction, as well as enforcement action depending on the totality of the circumstances. At a recent monthly meeting of OLCC commissioners, the staff gave a detailed report on the results of these efforts.
