Marijuana 101: Oregon Marijuana Laws

July 26, 2017

Oregon Welcomes YouWith the varied marijuana laws in many different states across the US, it can be complicated to keep track of what is allowed and where. Oregon was one of the first states in the US to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana and has become an example of what marijuana laws might look like. Of course, Oregon marijuana laws are different, at least in some ways, from those in other states across the country. Although research seems to be continually proving that marijuana is a low-risk and relatively safe drug, less than half of the states in the US have decriminalized some (if not all) marijuana possession offenses, and even fewer have legalized recreational use.

The Medical Marijuana Scene In Portland

July 6, 2017

Medical Cannabis SymbolSince Oregon legalized the possession and use of recreational marijuana in July 2015, the medical cannabis industry has remained in a state of flux with regards to licensing laws. While Oregon voters approved the medicinal use of marijuana in 1998, a medical dispensary registry system was not set up until 2012.

July 5, 2017

Oregon Cannabis AssociationOregon finds itself wedged between state and federal cannabis laws that are so entangled in years of failed policy even the perception of a thriving, well-regulated cannabis industry seems like a drug user's dreamland.

June 23, 2017

Tportland-headlight-422691_1920he way the recreational marijuana law is written in Oregon, smoking or vaporizing marijuana in public is not technically legal. When you buy weed from a marijuana dispensary, like buying alcohol from a liquor store, it does not make it legal to use it in public.
