OLCC: Commission Approves Temporary Rules

Yesterday afternoon the OLCC Commissioners approved two temporary rules, both designed to help with social distancing at dispensaries: allowing curbside delivery and increasing the daily limit for OMMP Cardholders and Caregivers. The following is from the OLCC’s Industry Guidance paper.

Curbside Delivery or Retailer On-Site Delivery

OLCC has allowed by temporary rule retail licensees to take orders and deliver product from the retail store to a person who is outside of the store and within 150 feet of the retailer’s licensed premises. Such on-site delivery sales must:

  • Have an accompanying bona fide order that is received prior to the on-site delivery being made;
  • Only be made during the retailer’s normal business hours, not earlier than 7:00 AM, and no later than 10:00 PM; and
  • Be recorded in CTS (Metrc) as a standard sales receipt (no delivery manifest).

Examples of this temporary privilege include delivering product to a person in the parking lot of the store, a person at the front entrance of the store, or a person at a walk-up or drive-thru window of the store.

If you wish to use the on-site delivery option, here are a few things you will need to do:

When taking an order for marijuana products, over the phone, email, website, app, or in person, the order must contain, at minimum, the following:

  • Requestor’s name and date of birth;
  • The date delivery is requested; and
  • A document that describes the marijuana items proposed for delivery and the amounts.

Enter the on-site delivery into CTS or your point of sale system the same way you would enter a regular in store sale. An on-site delivery does not require a printed manifest.

When the order is brought outside to the individual, you must check the purchaser’s ID to verify the person is over 21 (or over 18 if an OMMP cardholder) and is the person who made the order. NO exceptions.

Signature requirements are temporarily not required.

Make sure your store is secure while you or your employees are outside.

Retail sales to OMMP cardholders and caregivers

The temporary rule increases the amount of flower that OMMP cardholders and caregivers can purchase to 24 ounces per day and no more than 32 ounces per month. This change temporarily increases the daily purchase limit for OMMP cardholders to match their personal possession limit. This rule does not change the total monthly amount a cardholder or caregiver is currently permitted to purchase from an OLCC-licensed retailer
