The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission says it’s finding high THC levels in some southern Oregon hemp grows. Thc is the psychoactive component found in cannabis.
Through mid-September, the OLCC and ODA visited 316 registered hemp grow sites in Jackson and Josephine County. Test results from 212 sites showed that 58% of the samples tested positive for THC. The OLCC says it is looking to extend a moratorium on new recreational marijuana producer licenses.
