The Taxing of a Revolution: Oregon Takes a New Road

Oregon is being closely watched by reform advocates and entrepreneurs alike nationally as its recreational market inches toward realization. Oregon has been largely viewed as a Legalization 2.0 model after the continued problems, lawsuits and controversies of neighboring Washington state. In fact, it is the issues that still plague the definition and redefinition of The Evergreen State’s market post I-502 that Oregon is clearly trying to side-step as it gets the recreational green rush going.

“The Oregon market is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in the nation,” said Leslie Bocskor, the founding Chair of the Nevada Cannabis Industry Association.

Greenhouses Still Account for Only 1% of Cannabis Cultivation Centers

National greenhouse usage statistics for marijuana cultivationMarijuana Business Daily posted last week’s chart of the week, showing statistics from their Marijuana Business Factbook 2015. Cannabis cultivation in the US is still dominated by indoor marijuana growing facilities. Perhaps what is even more surprising than the domination of indoor grow ops over greenhouse marijuana growers, is that outdoor marijuana production is also six times greater than the marijuana production in greenhouses.

Outlaw marijuana 'monopolies,' lawmakers say

COLUMBUS – Ohio lawmakers want to eliminate "monopolies" in the Ohio constitution, such as one proposed by marijuana legalization group ResponsibleOhio.

A proposed constitutional amendment unveiled Tuesday would prohibit businesses from creating monopolies in the constitution. That would likely include putting specific parcels of land into the constitution, such as the location of marijuana farms. The change would not affect casino or racino locations already added into the constitution.

"The day of trying to buy our state constitution, we need to start putting some brakes to it pretty quick," said Ohio Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville.

It's legal to grow hemp in Oregon. Why only a few are doing it

Doctors and lawyers, entrepreneurs and farmers.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture issued 13 permits authorizing industrial farming for the first time ever this year.

Marijuana Zoning in Oregon: All Over the Board

We regularly get calls from clients in Oregon who are trying to figure out whether the property they’ve selected for their recreational marijuana business complies with applicable zoning regulations. Unfortunately, it is not yet clear what zoning regulations pertaining to recreational marijuana businesses will look like, because much of this regulation is left to individual cities and counties. Aside from designating sensitive uses such as schools, parks and transit centers, and then mandating a buffer zone (likely 1,000 feet) for marijuana businesses, the state of Oregon does not tend to involve itself extensively in zoning regulations.

South Dakota Indian Reservation Legalizes Marijuana

FLANDREAU, SD - The Flandreau Santee Sioux Indian Reservation has legalized the sale and use of marijuana on tribal land.

Last Thursday, the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe Executive Committee became the first reservation in the state to legalize marijuana.

Plans call for one facility where marijuana will be grown, and another place to buy and use the drug for medicinal and recreational use for those over 21.

Those under 21 could use medical marijuana with a doctor's recommendation. It's a controversial issue for the reservation, and the community of Flandreau.

Tribal President Anthony Reider says The Flandreau Santee Sioux Indian tribe is used to stepping forward and taking a stance on controversial issues.
