I think that’s huge, and we see it developing.” But that enthusiasm comes with a caveat. Marijuana is still federally illegal, and wineries must keep their wine and weed businesses separate or risk losing a federal permit that allows them to bottle and sell wine. That means establishing two distinct lots for tax purposes and keeping two licenses with the state, said Christie Scott, alcohol program spokeswoman for the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which also licenses recreational marijuana. Vineyards that grow grapes but don’t have a liquor license, however, could get a recreational marijuana license, she said. In the nearby Illinois Valley, Katherine Bryan is tackling these challenges as she launches a marijuana business with her son. She owns Deer Creek Vineyards with her husband, but Marijuana Stocks her pot operation will be called Bryan Family Gardens and will operate on land next to the vineyard. “We want to be as transparent as possible because when you’re under the federal government umbrella for your wines, you have to be very, very careful,” Bryan said. She plans to grow several hundred marijuana plants with a focus on organic cultivation and an eye toward a high-end market. They already have some buyers lined up and are installing greenhouses and lighting as they await approval of their recreational license. “I get $2,000 a ton for my pinot gris grapes, whereas I can make potentially $2,000 or more per pound of cannabis,” Bryan said.
