Oregon joined Colorado and Washington nearly two years ago as the third state to legalize cannabis for recreational use and haven’t looked back since.
The strong majority of citizens agree that legalization has had a positive impact throughout Oregon communities. According to a recent survey, 61% of voters in Oregon believe legalizing cannabis has been a positive development in the state, with roughly 30% stating that they feel it’s had a negative impact. The 61% is a 5% increase over the percentage of voters who voted “Yes” on Measure 91 in 2014 (56%).
Currently in Oregon recreational cannabis is sold through medical cannabis dispensaries; they can distribute up to a quarter ounce to non-patients 21 and older, although they can legally possess up to an ounce. Starting next year recreational cannabis retail outlets, licensed by the Liquor Control Commission, will begin opening their doors and dispensaries will go back to selling exclusively to patients; these outlets will be authorized to sell a full ounce to anyone at least 21 years old. read more at theweedblog.com
