EUGENE, Ore. – In support of social distancing and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, The Oregon Liquor Control Commission approved a temporary rule Sunday to allow licensed marijuana retailers curbside delivery options.

Stores can temporarily take orders and deliver product from the store to a person within 150 feet outside the store’s premises.

The changes will let stores operate by decreasing in-store activity, following the Governor’s Executive Order that prohibits public gatherings of 25 people or more.

Also, under the new temporary rule, the amount of flower that a cardholder and caregiver can purchase has been increased to 24 ounces per day and no more than 32 ounces per month.

If a licensed marijuana store was to take advantage of the temporary rule by disrupting public safety or health, the OLCC said they would immediately suspend the rule.
