Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana Advisory Board Features Five MMJ Professionals

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has established a committee to oversee the development of Oregon’s recreational marijuana industry. The committee comprises fifteen industry experts and law enforcement officials, as well as an attorney and the Multnomah County health officer. It will be chaired by Chris Lyons, the former executive director of the Oregon Lottery.

OLCC Executive Director Steven Marks stated that the committee “will provide a balanced approach” to the industry’s regulation. The committee includes five members with backgrounds in the medical marijuana industry — two growers, two dispensary owners, and the executive of a marijuana genetic testing lab.

The agency also created two permanent subcommittees: one will work on licensing, compliance and law enforcement, and the other is charged with advising the OLCC on how to track marijuana from farm to market.

The full list of committee members can be viewed here.
