Oregon Recreational Marijuana Laws

This information is not intended or to be used for legal advice or fact.

Oregon’s law legalizes personal possession manufacture and sales of cannabis to people 21 years old or older. This law is similar to the laws in Washington in Colorado but the Oregon law has a commercial regulatory system that oversees the production distribution and sale of cannabis.

One thing that makes the Oregon laws different are the limits on how much individual can possess grow or buy.

The law states adults over 21 can possess up to 8 ounces of marijuana but can grow to no more than four plants in their household. Now this is the total amount that is limited for the household.

Each adult can possess up to 1 ounce in public.

Adults 21 can also give but not sell up to 1 ounce of marijuana or up to 16 ounces of marijuana products in solid form or up to 72 ounces of marijuana products in liquid form to other adults.

Oregon will also have cannabis concentrate manufacturing for edibles and hash.

Oregon’s law mimics Colorado’s law as far as public use, under 21 consumption, growing and retail locations.

Can I consume marijuana in public? Answer – No, it is illegal to consume marijuana in public.This includes areas accessible to the public such as transportation facilities, schools, amusement/sporting/music venues, parks, playgrounds, sidewalks. It is also illegal to smoke at indoor locations like bars, restaurants and common areas in buildings.

*Note- None of these new laws will be enacted till January 2015 or later. So don’t run outside and light up!!
