July 7, 2016

Portland, Oregon – The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has launched a Marijuana Worker Permit application system for workers in Oregon’s recreational marijuana industry.  OLCC Recreational Marijuana Licensees and anyone employed in the recreational marijuana industry, including seasonal workers, are required by law to have the permit.

Information about the marijuana permit application, found online at the OLCC’s recreational marijuana website, provides application requirements, education materials, and a link to an online marijuana worker permit test.

The OLCC was assisted by public health advocates, other state agencies, and the marijuana industry in creating a Marijuana Education Course.  The course is modeled after the OLCC’s Alcohol Server Permit program. The education material is available in English and Spanish, and can be downloaded from the Marijuana Worker Permit website.

Applicants are required to pass a test showing they understand the laws and rules regarding marijuana, basic safe handling of marijuana items, checking identification, and recognizing the signs of visible intoxication.

Individuals must be at least 21 years old to obtain a Marijuana Worker Permit, which is valid for five years.  Permittees may work in any licensed marijuana business in Oregon.  Lab and research certificate employees do not need worker permits.

During the next few months the OLCC will process applications and will begin issuing Marijuana Worker Permits after September 1, 2016.  In the interim OLCC Recreational Marijuana Licensees are still required to use the Cannabis Tracking System to register their employees.
