Every marijuana dispensary in the state of Oregon recently passed a round of state minor decoy operations.
The 25 dispensaries did not allow the sale of marijuana to minors.
It is the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) that regulates the marijuana industry and periodically sends out minors to the dispensaries to try to buy marijuana.
In the latest round, it was dispensaries in the cities of Bend, Portland, and Salem that were targeted.
Retailers who break the rule and sell to a minor face a 30-day suspension or $4,950 fine for a first time offense. Additional offenses have increased penalties.
It was in January that some dispensaries had failed the decoy operations. Steve Marks, the Executive Director of the OLCC, remarked, “These overall results are unacceptable,” he said in a statement. “This is a wake-up call to our licensed retailers. Oregonians have entrusted you with a responsibility that includes NOT selling marijuana to minors.”
