EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Investigators from Oregon State Police raided an illegal marijuana grow operation that stretched across two properties east of White City last Thursday, seizing and destroying almost 53,000 plants.

OSP said that local law enforcement in Jackson County has been working with the area water masters and code enforcement officers to sift through the proliferation of illegal operations in the midst of those that are legal and licensed.

On June 10, OSP’s Drug Enforcement Section Southwest Region marijuana team served a search warrant at two adjacent properties in the 1500-block of Alta Vista Road and the 700-block of Riley Road, both Eagle Point addresses.

Officers found and detained the two property owners while others searched through the properties. OSP said that a total of 74 greenhouses, two barns, and two outdoor growing areas were filled with marijuana plants.

Investigators seized and destroyed 52,804 plants at the end of the operation. OSP said that five guns and some cash were also seized in the search.

Jackson County code enforcement issue one of the property owners with a citation for the unpermitted greenhouse structures and electrical infrastructure. The fine for those violations could total $300,000.

Authorities from the Oregon Water Resources Department also cited one of the men for enlarging his existing water rights “due to unapproved diversions of surface water,” OSP said.

The raid in included marijuana enforcement teams from Jackson and Josephine Counties.

Worldwide Cannabis Testing Industry to 2027 – High Growth Potential in Untapped Emerging Economies

/PRNewswire/ — The “Cannabis Testing Market by Product, Test Type and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2027” report has been…

Published

DUBLIN, June 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The “Cannabis Testing Market by Product, Test Type and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2027” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global cannabis testing market was valued at $1,029 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $2,445 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.9%. Cannabis testing refers to the analysis that an individual sample of cannabis may be examined to determine THC, CBD, and terpene levels as well as for contaminants and impurities such as residual solvents, mold, disease, pests or pesticide residue. Each individual state and municipality can impose its own standards & regulations for what needs to be tested and printed on cannabis labels. Furthermore, individual growers may opt for more stringent standards and go as far as to have their samples tested for CBC and CBG levels. This testing can be performed only by certified chemists and lab technicians.

Rising demand for cannabis legalization in several countries for medical purposes and increase in adoption of LIMS in cannabis testing laboratories are the key factors driving the growth of the cannabis testing market. Furthermore, collaborations between major companies are also expected to boost the market growth. However, high startup cost for cannabis testing laboratories is expected to restrain the growth of the market. These laboratories have to make significant investments in procuring and maintaining high-priced, advanced analytical equipment. Conversely, emerging economies across developing regions, such as LATAM and Asia-Pacific, are expected to provide new opportunities for market players in future.

The global cannabis testing market is segmented based on product, test type, end user, and region. On the basis of product, the cannabis testing market is classified into instruments, consumables, and software. Instruments are further classified into chromatography instruments and spectroscopy instruments. Furthermore, chromatography instruments segment is subdivided into liquid chromatography and gas chromatography. Spectroscopy instruments segment is bifurcated into mass spectrometry instruments and atomic spectroscopy. By test type, it is categorized into heavy metal testing, microbial analysis, potency testing, residual screening, and others. Furthermore, by end user, it is divided into cannabis cultivators/growers, cannabis drug manufacturers, and others.

Cannabis company growing weed in Colombia goes public in US

Most cannabis companies that list their stocks in the United States grow their products in indoor greenhouses, often in Canada.

Published

on

But a company named Flora Growth that went public on the Nasdaq on Tuesday is taking a different approach. Although headquartered in Toronto, its agricultural operations are in Colombia. And it cultivates cannabis the old-fashioned way: outdoors.

Why? It’s a lot cheaper.

    It costs Flora Growth just 6 cents to cultivate a gram of dry flower for medicinal grade cannabis in Colombia, compared to about $1.25 a gram indoors in North America, CEO Luis Merchan said in an interview with CNN Business before the IPO.

      Yet other companies aren’t racing to South America, he said, because it takes time for companies to get approval from the Colombian government for licenses and registration to set up cannabis facilities.

      Major firms selling in the US and Canada also usually prefer to have their products grown closer to home. For example, Canopy Growth (CGC), a leading Canadian cannabis company whose major investor is Corona-owner Constellation Brands (STZ), announced last year it was ending cultivation operations in Colombia in order to focus more on local suppliers around the globe.

      Flora shares fall in IPO

      But investors didn’t seem too impressed with Flora Growth, which makes cannabis-based food and beauty products. Shares fell more than 4%. The company priced its offering at the high end of its proposed range.

      Flora Growth is still tiny compared to larger cannabis firms like Canopy, Altria (MO)-backed Cronos (CRON) and Tilray (TLRY), which recently merged with Aphria to create the world’s largest pot company.

      It's 4/20. Cannabis stocks are smoking hot

      Flora generated just $106,000 in revenue last year as it started to ramp up production, and the company is not yet profitable. But Merchan pointed out that at a time when many private companies have chosen to go public via mergers with blank check special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), Flora did a traditional initial public offering.

      Major cannabis stocks surged at the start of 2021 -— in part due to more states legalizing marijuana and the fact that Democrats now control Congress and the White House. But shares have since pulled back sharply from their highs

      But Merchan is confident the company will eventually make money as a low-cost producer of cannabis-related products — even in an increasingly crowded market.

      He added that selling recreational cannabis, i.e. pre-rolled joints or other products that consumers can smoke or vape, is not a high priority right now. Instead, Flora Growth is focusing on things like cannabis-infused chocolate and other candy, as well as personal care products.

      Flora has a partnership with Paulina Vega, 2014’s Miss Universe and a former Miss Colombia, to sell CBD-infused skin care products. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component derived from cannabis and hemp plants.

      Cannabis stocks soar, Big Tech sinks following Georgia elections

      Merchan said Flora decided to file for an IPO was to prove to investors that it can handle the increased scrutiny that comes with filing paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

        He added that he believes the legal cannabis and CBD markets, which are growing rapidly as more states and countries legalize the sale of recreational and medicinal marijuana, can accommodate many players.

        “We have robust cultivation facilities and we intend to use capital from the stock sale to expand our operations in the US, infrastructure in Colombia and sales team worldwide,” Merchan said.

        Yet other companies aren’t racing to South America, he said, because it takes time for companies to get approval from the Colombian government for licenses and registration to set up cannabis facilities.
