(1) Subject to subsection (2) of this section, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission shall adopt rules restricting the size of mature marijuana plant grow canopies at premises for which a license has been issued under ORS 475B.070 (Production license). In adopting rules under this subsection, the commission shall:

(a) Limit the size of mature marijuana plant grow canopies, for premises where marijuana is grown outdoors and for premises where marijuana is grown indoors, in a manner calculated to result in premises that produce the same amount of harvested marijuana leaves and harvested marijuana flowers regardless of whether the marijuana is grown outdoors or indoors.

(b) Adopt a tiered system under which the permitted size of a marijuana producer’s mature marijuana plant grow canopy increases at the time of licensure renewal under ORS 475B.070 (Production license), except that the permitted size of a marijuana producer’s mature marijuana plant grow canopy may not increase following any year during which the commission disciplined the marijuana producer for violating a provision of ORS 475B.010 (Short title) to 475B.395 (Severability of ORS 475B.010 to 475B.395) or a rule adopted under a provision of ORS 475B.010 (Short title) to 475B.395 (Severability of ORS 475B.010 to 475B.395).

(c) Take into consideration the market demand for marijuana items in this state, the number of persons applying for a license under ORS 475B.070 (Production license) and to whom a license has been issued under ORS 475B.070 (Production license), and whether the availability of marijuana items in this state is commensurate with the market demand.

(2) This section does not apply to a premises for which a license has been issued under ORS 475B.070 (Production license) if the premises is used only to propagate immature marijuana plants. [2015 c.614 §13]
