Oregon Revokes 2 Testing Licenses for Regulatory Violations

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) revoked the cannabis testing licenses for Evio Labs Bend and Evio Labs Eugene / Oregon Analytical Services for allowing employees to take home cannabis samples intended for retesting. Laboratories test a sample of cannabis and retain a portion from the same batch in case of a retest. Under state law, the remaining cannabis must be destroyed. Evio violated OLCC regulations by providing employees with the cannabis, failing to document this transfer in the state’s inventory tracking system, and for destroying evidence and encouraging employees to lie to investigators. Evio initially requested a hearing but decided to enter into an agreement with the OLCC to settle the claims.
