ODA keeps a searchable directory of hemp farms
I’m trying to find out if a cannabis farm near me is legal and registered with the state. Is there a place where I can look it up before I call to report a neighbor?

You may have seen this question before, but wait until you see the answer!
That’s because we were wrong when we said Friday that there’s no place to find industrial hemp grows registered in the state.
The Oregon Department of Agriculture keeps an online database of hemp grow sites — among other hemp licensees — that’s searchable by name, city, county or license type, according to the ODA Director’s Office.
You’ll find the database linked at at oda.direct/hemp and clicking “Search Issued Hemp Registrations.” We completely overlooked that link when we provided our earlier answer.
The ODA page also has complaint forms, among other resources.
