The Oregon Liquor Control Commission this week announced two final stops on its statewide listening tour on marijuana.
The OLCC will be in Newport on March 11. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Hallmark Resort, Salon Room, 744 S.W. Elizabeth St.
The commission will be in Portland — the last stop on the tour — on March 12. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Left Bank Annex, 101 North Weidler St. CART captioning services for people with hearing impairment will be available at the Portland meeting.
So far, the listening tour has drawn more than 2,700 people. The OLCC is charged with overseeing the regulated marijuana industry in Oregon.
“OLCC is committed to a transparent and inclusive public process to help us implement the law in a way that protects children, keeps our communities safe, promotes economic opportunity and brings the recreational marijuana industry into the regulated market,” said Rob Patridge, chairman of the commission and Klamath County district attorney.
