In a little over 50 days, on July 1st, the possession and personal cultivation of cannabis will officially become legal for thoseoregon 21 and older in the State of Oregon.

Specifically, those 21 and older, beginning July 1st, will be legally authorized to possess up to eight ounces of cannabis (half a pound), and cultivate up to four cannabis plants for personal use. This is due to portions of Measure 91, approved by voters in November, becoming law.

The Oregon Liquor Commission has until January 1st, 2016 to establish rules and regulations for cannabis retail outlets, which are expected to open by mid-2016. These outlets will be locations where anyone 21 and older can purchase cannabis, including seeds and plants.

According to a study released in July by ECONorthwest, the price of cannabis under Measure 91 is likely to be around $140 an ounce, far lower than the average prices in Colorado and Washington.

Similarly, ACP strongly urges protection from criminal or civil penalties for patients who use medical marijuana as permitted under state laws.”You can read more and support her campaign on her site http://denisebedio.com/marijuana.
