Is OHA implementing seed-to-sale tracking like the Oregon Liquor Control Commission is developing for the adult-use market? Consistent with the requirements in House Bill , OHA's rules require growers, processors and dispensaries to report the total amount of marijuana transferred to each patient, processor and dispensary on a monthly basis.
OHA will only be collecting data on total monthly transfers and WILL NOT be tracking individual products as they are transferred through the supply chain. By rule, OHA has excluded patients growing only for themselves at their own residence from any tracking or reporting requirements. If I am a medical marijuana grower, do I have to track my marijuana plants at harvest and send information to OHA?
House Bill , passed in the Legislative session, requires OHA to register grow sites in order to track and regulate the production of marijuana, and requires growers to submit monthly reports to OHA.

Visit our New Patients page to learn how to apply for a medical marijuana card. If, upon an initial review, it appears that a complete application has been received, the patient will be issued a receipt letter. This receipt has the same legal effect as a registry identification card for 30 days following the date printed on the letter. Once your application is finished being processed, a card will be mailed to you. If your application is NOT complete, OMMP staff will send you an "Incomplete Letter" to let you know what needs to be submitted to complete your application.
You will have 14 days from the date of the letter to get the missing application materials to OMMP. If the missing application materials are not submitted within the 14 days, your application may be rejected. Please do not call to check your status prior to 30 days from the date we receive your application.
The processing of applications takes time, and the same staff who review your application also answer the phones. The more calls we receive, the slower we process applications.

This documentation gives you the same legal protection as a registry identification card, until you get your card or get notification that your application has been denied. In addition, a receipt from the OMMP will be mailed to you if you submit what appears to be a complete application.
The receipt will be valid for 30 days from the date on the receipt and will allow you entry into a dispensary. To pay this fee the grower will need to follow the instructions on our Grower page to create an online account and pay.
Do I have to tell the OMMP if I change my mailing address, add or remove a caregiver, grower, or change my grow site address? You are required to submit a Change Form with the updated information within 10 calendar days.
It is important for your registry file to be up to date so if law enforcement requests verification of information from the OMMP your current caregiver, grower, and grow site are all protected. An Oregon medical marijuana patient and their caregiver, if applicable may possess up to 6 mature plants , which must be grown at a registered grow site address, and up to 24 ounces of usable marijuana.
