In just three days, on October 1st, those in Oregon (resident or not) will be authorized to legally purchase cannabis at one of over 300 dispensaries throughout the state. On that day, Oregon will become the third U.S. state to allow for the legal distribution of recreational cannabis.
A full list of each the state’s medical cannabis dispensaries – which will be allowed to sell to anyone 21 and older beginning Thursday, thanks to Senate Bill 460 – can be found on Oregon’s official website at Oregon.gov/oha/mmj/, or by clicking here.
Dispensaries will be allowed to distribute up to a quarter ounce of cannabis, which will be sold tax free. Once cannabis retail outlets open sometime next year, they’ll be allowed to sell up to an ounce, and dispensaries will return to servicing medical cannabis patients.
In Oregon, it’s legal to possess up to an ounce of cannabis, or up to eight ounces at a private residence, if you’re 21 or older. The personal cultivation of up to four cannabis plants is also legal.
