 Role of the committee

The OHA Retail Marijuana Scientific Advisory Committee provides scientific input to inform public health recommendations related to retail marijuana in Oregon. The committee will examine current data and make recommendations regarding:

  • Minimizing adverse health effects of retail marijuana use, for example recommending the maximum amount of THC in a single serving of edible product, packaging and labeling of marijuana products, and how to reduce negative health effects in vulnerable populations
  • Impacts of time, place and manner of retail sale of potentially addictive substances
