The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has approved preliminary rules to govern Oregon's retail marijuana system once it's fully operational next year.

The rules approved Thursday limit the size of growing operations and prohibit medical and recreational stores under one roof. The on-site use of marijuana will be prohibited, and delivery of pot will face stiff restrictions.

Stores began selling marijuana to adults 21 and older earlier this month. Those dispensaries are operating under temporary authority from Oregon's medical marijuana program.

The temporary rules take effect January 1 and will stay in place until June 28. The OLCC has 180 days to hammer out the permanent rules.

By 2017, all stores selling to the general population will have to abide by the OLCC's rules.
