Oregon Legalizes Recreational Marijuana

Oregon Legalizes Marijuana

 

Wed, 07/01/2015 – Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana law goes into effect today. The state was the first to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana in 1973, today, adults are allowed to possess and grow small amounts of marijuana.

Buying and selling marijuana is still illegal and so is smoking it in public. Portland police are now discouraging residents from calling 911 to report smokers.

Retail sales will be allowed to start in late 2016. Permits for processors, wholesalers and retailers will come out in succession. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will oversee all sales and production. Permits for growing marijuana in the state of Oregon will start being accepted in January in time for spring planting.

Residents are hoping the legalization of cannabis will help the struggling communities by replacing the defunct timber industry

“It is a legitimate product now,” State Rep. Carl Wilson said. “It is my interest to see it prosper, along with the medicinal.”
