Multnomah County Tobacco Retailers License Applications Begin July 1

If your business is located in Multnomah County and sells tobacco or vaping products, you should be aware of a 2015 Multnomah County ordinance and the related Multnomah County Health Department rules that will become effective in July 2016.

Beginning on July 1, 2016, any retailer who sells tobacco, electronic cigarettes or vaping products in Multnomah County must obtain an annual license. The license requirement applies to any person or business that sells those products, including but not limited to convenience stores, gas stations, bars, hotels, restaurants and music venues.

Enforcement is set to begin in January 2017, so plan accordingly.

For more about this, check out my blog post here.

The OLCC recently issued formal guidance on recreational marijuana. In sum, the use of recreational marijuana is not allowed in a public place. While this may not be a surprise to some, it’s still a secret to many. Or, more likely, it’s simply widely disregarded. For those of us living in Portland, it’s not uncommon to see or smell public marijuana use. Strict enforcement of this prohibition is obviously a tremendous challenge to law enforcement and simply may not be a top priority. (Hmm . . .what to pursue? Violent crime or marijuana smokers?).
