Final Implementation of New Additive Rules takes effect July 1 2021

6/3/2021 12:32:13 PM +00:00

The July 1, 2021 deadline for “Inhalable Cannabinoid Products with Non-cannabis Additives” (“ICP”) is rapidly approaching.  Generally, ICPs are vape cartridges and pre-rolls with non-cannabis terpenes or flavorings. On and after July 1, 2021, licensees cannot possess or transfer these products unless they comply with the new rule standards.

Before July 1, 2021, licensees can sell, destroy (waste), or return to the processor any ICPs that do not comply with the new rules – but if returning to another licensee, the ICPs will still need to be wasted in compliance with OLCC rules prior to July 1, 2021.

Licensees can use the following to spot labels subject to the “sell down” (cannot be possessed or transferred on and after July 1, 2021) and what labels are not subject to the sell down:

  • Labels subject to the sell down contain product identities like “marijuana extract with non-marijuana terpenes” or “marijuana extract with natural and artificial flavors” and ingredient listings that state “natural” or “artificial flavors.” Here is an example;
  • Labels that are NOT subject to the sell down contain product identities and ingredient listings that contain the words “non-cannabis additives” and list all the ingredients in the product – either on an insert or on the exterior label. Here is an example.
  • Licensees may no longer utilize generic labels for ICPs created on and after April 1, 2021.

Questions related to the rules or labeling should be directed to marijuana.packaging@oregon.gov.

Questions related to Metrc should be directed to marijuana.cts@oregon.gov.

Floating Penny Bug Fix

5/26/2021 12:15:49 PM +00:00

OMMPOS has had a long running bug on our sales screen where the system would add a penny too much or calculate taxes and be a penny short. We have fixed this issue. It may be necessary to reenter your product prices for products where this issue is happening.

We have applied this update to regular OMMPOS today and will update Private Cloud customers tomorrow. Stand Alone Backup Server customers should give us a call to schedule an upgrade. Please give me a call with any questions. - Raja (971) 276 - 3371

Pre Roll Button Fixed

4/30/2021 1:08:48 AM +00:00

We fixed the METRC Pre-roll button. A recent METRC change requires specifying a Room when creating a new package. The pre-roll button will now create a default room for your dispensary if one has not already been specified.

A recent update began showing employee email addresses instead of names. We noticed that many email records were using the same email address. Each employee should enter a unique email address. This bug has been fixed.

OMMPOS March 16th Update

3/16/2021 12:29:23 PM +00:00

Yesterday Metrc performed an update that broke the API functionality of OMMPOS, causing issues with retrieving package information and updating METRC admin information. We were able to provide a patch for this issue and uploaded our update to regular OMMPOS this morning. We will upload the patch to OMMPOS Private Clouds and State customers this evening and schedule appointments for Stand Alone Backup Server customers. 

We were not provided with advanced notice of yesterday's breaking changes and responded as fast as possible to provide a fix and restore functionality. We worked through the night and were able to restore full functionality to everything except the Metrc Sales Reconciliation Tool. This past METRC update removes access to key sales transaction data that we need to reconcile daily sales. We will be reaching out to Metrc asking them to restore the sales transaction data that we need for daily sales reconciliation and we encourage you to do the same. 

Please call me with any questions.

Thank you,

3/15/2021 10:01:16 AM +00:00

update 3/16/21 3:16 AM: We updated regular OMMPOS this morning. Yesterday Metrc posted an update that caused breaking changes. We updated OMMPOS to account for these changes. We will be updating Private Clouds end of day Tuesday 3/16/21. Backup server customers please contact me to schedule an upgrade appointment. - Raja

METRC launched it's scheduled update this morning mentioned in metrc memo #90.  This update appears to be interrupting people's ability to import new packages. If you encounter this issue please give METRC a call and let them know. 

We are postponing our planned update until this Friday 3/19/21 to avoid any conflict with this METRC update. Please give me a call with any questions.
