Oregon Liquor Control Commission
Marijuana in Oregon is legal for both medical-use and recreational adult-use. The Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (Measure 67) that established medical marijuana and Measure 91 legalized marijuana cultivation and recreational adult-use.
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) regulates the production, processing, and sale of medical products sold to Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholders in licensed medical marijuana dispensaries and regulates the recreational adult-use sales and production processing through the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act.
The OLCC requires persons employed in the OLCC-licensed recreational marijuana industry, including licensees, must have a valid Marijuana Worker Permit. This includes anyone working at a business with any of the producers, processors, wholesalers, and retailers, and individuals must be twenty-one (21) years of age or older to be eligible to receive a Marijuana Worker Permit.
All employees who perform work on behalf of an OLCC licensed producer, processor, wholesaler, or retailer who is working or managing information in Cannabis Tracking System (CTS) must possess a Marijuana Worker Permit.

100% Accessible & Compliant Platform
One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" in their eLearning solutions. Our platform is American Disability Act (ADA) - Section 508 compliant and why we started our "Industry Impact Program" to make a change.
We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.
Our platform is composed of a complex system with many parts and aspects of our development is always evolving so "accessibility" is NOT a state. It is a process of continuous improvement in response to our learners and technical environment.

Message From Our Founder
How would you describe your cannabis training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a well-developed solution.
Is your training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I asked this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you'll always be a cannabis expert.
In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your business) and much more... without all of the headaches.
