Wary Oregon wants weaker pot edibles for recreational users

When it comes to marijuana-infused edibles, Oregon wants you to know that, like perfume, a little goes a long way.

Snacks and treats made with cannabis are not only tasty but potent. Oregon regulators have come up with rules that would make these products half as strong as what Colorado and Washington allow in part to protect novices, including those whose most recent experience with the drug dates to the Nixon administration.

Oregon and Alaska are part of a second generation of states with legal marijuana markets that see Colorado and Washington not as models but as a cautionary tales about the appeal and pitfalls of cannabis-infused drinks, sweets and foods. In Colorado, home to a robust edibles market, some rookie consumers had high-profile and, in at least one case, tragic experiences after consuming food made with cannabis. Overall, marijuana-related calls to poison centers increased after legalization in both states.

So Oregon has proposed setting its sights lower, hoping weaker marijuana products would ultimately protect two groups: inexperienced consumers who eat too much too quickly only to feel sick and impaired, and preschoolers who end up high, disoriented and, in some cases, hospitalized after snacking on their parents' pot-infused treats.

Practically speaking, Oregon's limits would work like this: A chocolate bar sold on the recreational market would be made up of 5 milligram servings, each marked on the bar itself so the consumer could easily identify a single portion. The whole bar could have no more than 50 milligrams of THC – enough for 10 servings.

Products where individual servings can't easily be marked, say a drink or container of ice cream, would be limited to a total of two servings, or 10 milligrams.

The proposed limits are half of what's allowed in Washington and Colorado, the first states to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Both limit a single serving to 10 milligrams and whole packages to 100 milligrams.

The health authority would allow higher limits for products intended for the medical marijuana market, where patients in general tend to consume more cannabis and use more potent products. These products would be sold only to medical marijuana patients and their caregivers.

3 indicted on money laundering and marijuana charges, including former Eugene fire ca

A retired Eugene Fire Department captain, his wife and their son, a city of Eugene employee, have been indicted in an alleged money laundering scheme and interstate marijuana distribution operation.

Kenneth Allan Hern, 64; Kathleen Lucille Hern, 65; and Steven Perry Hern, 41, all residents of Trailblazer Court in Lowell, southeast of Eugene, have been charged with unlawful delivery of marijuana for “consideration” and laundering a monetary instrument, according to Lane County Circuit Court records.

Each had entered “not guilty” pleas after an indictment in late November. Each is expected to return to court for a pretrial conference hearing Feb. 24.

Little is known about the details of the case. Kenneth Hern, who served as a Lowell city councilor after he retired from the Eugene Fire Department in 2003, also is facing charges in Maryland.

The Maryland charges include importing 11 pounds to 99 pounds of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute, and possession of marijuana. A jury trial is scheduled in that case for May 24.

Eugene-Springfield Deputy Fire Chief Randy DeWitt said Kenneth Hern began his career with the department in 1974.

According to Steven Hern’s LinkedIn profile, he has worked for the city of Eugene since July 2002 and is a lead fleet service technician in the Public Works Department.

Public works spokesman Brian Richardson said Hern is on administrative leave. Richardson declined further comment because the matter is a personnel issue.

Interest Soars For Oregon Marijuana Licenses



There’s been a lot of interest in opening a licensed recreational marijuana business in Oregon. The state received nearly 200 paid submissions in the first two days since it began taking applications.

More than half of those applications are from aspiring recreational marijuana growers. The rest are from retailers, processors, and wholesalers. More than a third of the initial applications are from the Portland metro area. The rest are scattered around western and southern Oregon.

That’s due in part to the fact that many cities and counties east of the Cascades have banned marijuana-related businesses. That could change later this year when voters in many of those places will have the chance to overturn the ban on their November ballot.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission said it expects the first set of recreational marijuana stores to open this fall. Limited recreational sales are currently allowed at medical marijuana dispensaries.

That IS surprising. Seems like it would be a natural fit. Some growers are probably going to hold on to OMMP as long as they can. I was ready to do half an acre outdoor over here but they banned it in December.

The Leafly Marketwatch: What Percentage of Your Dispensary Visitors are Out-of-State?

Oregon

Oregon’s traffic data looks like a reversal of Washington’s, with over 39% of out-of-state traffic coming from its northern neighbor and 30% originating from California.



Tourism is a likely factor here since Oregon is sandwiched between Washington and California, making it an appealing destination for a quick cannabis-friendly weekend getaway.

Texas? Really? Wonder why that is.

Marijuana use among Oregon adults higher than rest of country

Good news for all of us in the industry.

Marijuana use among adults 26 and older in Oregon has doubled since 2006, while at the same time use has gone up only slightly in the rest of the country.

Overall, 1 in 10 adults in Oregon said they use the drug, which remains especially popular with young men. Oregon's marijuana use among adults has exceeded national trends for the past decade.

The Oregon Health Authority this month issued a report detailing marijuana trends and attitudes among Oregonians. It is the state's first comprehensive review of the latest government public health surveys looking at who consumes marijuana in Oregon and how frequently, as well as attitudes about cannabis, which is now legal for recreational use.

Oregon flags potential problem with popular pesticide used on marijuana

The Oregon Department of Agriculture on Friday temporarily removed a popular pesticide from its list of chemicals cannabis growers may use on their crop.

Rodger Voelker, a chemist with OG Analytical, a marijuana testing lab in Eugene, said he recently noticed that abamectin, a common insecticide, had turned up in a handful of cannabis samples submitted by growers who said they grew organically. One mentioned he used only Guardian Mite Spray. Voelker asked for a sample of the mite spray, tested it and detected abamectin, an active ingredient not listed on the product label.

Voelker alerted agriculture officials about his results on Thursday since the mite spray is included on the state's newly released list of pesticides growers may be able to use on their plants. The product is marketed as an all natural pesticide containing products like cinnamon oil and lemon grass oil.

The state on Friday issued a bulletin "out of an abundance of caution" alerting cannabis growers to a potential labeling problem with the mite spray and advising them not to use the product and retailers not to sell it "until further notice."

Bruce Pokarney, a spokesman for the agency, said state officials alerted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates pesticides, about the product.

Pokarney said the state on Friday bought the product from a Portland grow shop and will attempt to test it to see if it contains active ingredients not listed on the label.

"This is essentially a routine sample and testing protocol that we use in the course of a pesticide investigation," he said in an email to The Oregonian/OregonLive.

A man identifying himself as an owner of the Illinois-based company that makes the product said it contains ivermectin, a chemical similar to abamectin. Ivermectin is not listed on the product label as required.

The man said he did not realize the product label had to include all active ingredients. He said the product has been on the market for about a year.

"We weren't trying to pull anything," he said. "We put it in there, and it wasn't on the label and that's our fault."

Neil Bernstein, who owns Roots Garden Supply, a North Portland grow shop that serves cannabis growers, said the product was very popular among growers for its effectiveness against mites.

"This product became wildly popular because it was more effective than a harsh chemical," he said.

Bernstein said he removed the product from his shelves on Friday.
