State regulators will soon start doing random inspections of cannabis businesses, starting with retailers, according to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
More details are forthcoming, said OLCC spokesman Mark Pettinger.
Until now, inspections of legal cannabis businesses have largely been complaint-driven, Pettinger said. In December, the agency started checking whether businesses were selling marijuana to minors through “minor decoy” stings.
Although marijuana became legal under Oregon law in July 2015, OLCC did not start issuing retail licenses for recreational marijuana until October 2016.
