Grow Site Consent Required in 2020
The following is an important message from the Oregon Health Authority regarding an upcoming change in OMMP policy.
“Important information about registering a grow site in 2020.
Due to the passing of House Bill 3200 during the 2019 Legislative session, any patient application (new or renewal) or change form (changing the grower or grow site) received by the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) on or after January 1, 2020 designating a grow site will be required to submit informed written consent from the owner of the property to use the property as a grow site if the patient or the designated grower is not the property owner of the grow site.
OMMP will be updating the patient application to include this new requirement. The new patient application, change form and grow site consent form should be available in December 2019 on the OMMP website. Any application or change form received on or after January 1, 2020 that does not include informed written consent or does not indicate the property owner, will be considered incomplete. The OMMP will give the patient and grower 14 days to provide the written consent form.
Please check our website for the new forms in December. For information on how to apply or how to apply online, grower requirements and other program rules, please visit our website at www.healthoregon.org/ommp.”
