To understand Oregon marijuana laws, we have to go all the way back to 1923 when, during a spate of bans nationwide, Oregon outlawed cannabis along with the states of Iowa, Washington, and Vermont. Twelve years later, in 1935, Oregon went one step further by expanding the powers of existing state and federal drug laws by passing the Uniform State Narcotic Drug Act.

However, by 1973, the tides had changed, and Oregon became the first state to decriminalize marijuana by reducing penalties for marijuana possession of less than one ounce to a simple violation that carried just a $100 fine, a far cry from the typical jail sentences of previous years.

Twenty-odd years later, Oregon marijuana laws had not changed as several attempts to pass marijuana legislation had failed to reach voters. However, in 1998, when Measure 67 was added to the ballot, it passed 55 percent to 45 percent. Thus, the statewide medical marijuana permit system that legalized and protected medical marijuana users was born.

Over the next few years, several additional ballot measures attempted to expand on the 1998 law, including one initiative in 2012 that attempted recreational legalization, but all were defeated by voters.

In 2014, voters approved Measure 91 by a margin of 56 percent to 44 percent, which legalized the non-medicinal cultivation and use of marijuana by adults aged 21 or older, effective July 1, 2015.

Due to a lack of legal ways to purchase marijuana after July 1, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed an emergency order in 2015 that allowed medical marijuana dispensaries to sell products to recreational users starting on October 1, 2015, almost a year before retail shops were scheduled to open and thereby closing the legal loophole of recreational users that could grow and consume marijuana, but couldn't legally purchase it.
