EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A farm southwest of Eugene has been given a license to become the second licensed recreational marijuana producer in Lane County. Winberry Farm southeast of Eugene joins New Breed Seed, which was licensed last month by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/N1JotT ) The Oregon Health Authority is running a temporary recreational marijuana sales program through medical dispensaries. The commission last week granted the first producer licenses in the lead-up to its regulation of recreational pot.

The commission on Thursday approved a small-sized grower license for Winberry Farms. The license, which costs $3,750 annually, allows for up to 20,000 square feet of pot plants to be grown outside.
