ODA Hemp Rules Advisory Meeting: The First Step Towards New Hemp Program Rule Updates

Our Founding Principal Courtney N. Moran, LL.M. will participate as a Member of the upcoming ODA Hemp Rules Advisory Committee, Tuesday, August 22nd from 9:30 am to 11:30 am to guide updating the current Oregon hemp program rules.

Updating Hemp Program Rules

This RAC serves as an essential step toward updating the existing Oregon hemp program. The draft rules the RAC will discuss include creating a new vendor license, updates to grower application dates, authorization for remediation, and other minor corrections.

As the hemp industry continues to evolve, it is important to ensure that regulations keep pace with the changing market. By revisiting and refining the rules, ODA aims to adopt a regulatory framework that continued to support the growth and sustainability of the hemp industry while addressing emerging challenges and concerns.

Collaborative Decision-Making

The virtual Hemp Rules Advisory Meeting provides a platform for RAC members to share their insights, concerns, and suggestions. Through collaborative discussions, the ODA and RAC members work together to identify areas that require attention and propose potential updates to the existing rules. This inclusive approach allows for a more comprehensive and well-rounded decision-making process, ensuring that the interests of all stakeholders are considered.

Engaging the Public

The ODA has this meeting open to the public for its commitment to transparency and inclusivity. By allowing interested individuals to observe the proceedings, the ODA ensures that stakeholders, farmers, industry experts, and concerned citizens have the opportunity to stay informed about the rule-making process. This level of engagement fosters a sense of collaboration and allows for a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the hemp industry.
