Oregon Marijuana Laws

Oregon became the third state in the U.S. to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by adults when voters approved Measure 91 during the 2014 general election. As of July 1, 2015, adults 21 and over are allowed to grow up to four plants and have up to eight ounces of useable marijuana for personal use. Recreational sales are limited to existing medical marijuana dispensaries until more robust regulations are implemented in 2016.
