Updated Oregon-Idaho HIDTA Cannabis Assessment Report Issued

Relevant statistics and data surrounding cannabis in Oregon which are reported by various sources are constantly changing and the Oregon-Idaho HIDTA continuously reviews the information that is made available. As part of the program’s continuing review of available, reliable and relevant data surrounding cannabis in Oregon, a noticeable shift in Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) and Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) registrant information for grow sites and producers was identified.  Because the new information reflects a fairly significant change from the data reported in  An Initial Assessment of Cannabis Production, distribution, and Consumption in Oregon 2018 – An Insight Report which was published last week, the Oregon-Idaho HIDTA has amended previously reported data and has issued an updated report.

Changes from the previous report are summarized below:

  • OLCC reported producer statistics are updated and clarified with figures from August 1, 2018 – pages 9, 13, and 15
  • OMMP grow site statistics are updated and clarified with figures from July 2018 – page 15

  • Reported grow site to user ratio updated – pages 9, 13, and 16

  • Info-graphic showing ratio of grow site to users updated – page 16

  • Essential Elements of Information (EEI) updated – pages 9 and 13

  • OLCC and OMMP retailer, wholesaler, and caregiver statistics updated with information from August 1, 2018 and July 2018, respectively – pages 9, 13, and 20

  • Updated technical appendix to reflect new calculations time frame – page 46

  • All footnotes have been adjusted to reflect the data changes
