Gov. Kate Brown Names First Cannabis Industry Representative to Oregon Liquor Control Commission

When Gov. Kate Brown last week released her new list of appointments to boards and commissions, much of the focus was on two senior state senators moving on to new positions.

But just as she acted to renew the Senate chamber, Brown also proposed new blood for the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, whose regulatory authority expanded to recreational cannabis after voters approved Measure 91 in 2014.

Brown last appointed Matt Maletis to the OLCC, which until now has not had people with experience in the cannabis business among its commissioners.

Maletis comes from a family that dominated beer distribution in Oregon for decades. His father and an uncle sold their share of a beer distributorship and spent the past decade trying to develop Langdon Farms, a golf course just south of the Urban Growth Boundary. Matt Maletis has been working to promote marijuana farming on land his family owns near Langdon Farms.
