The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Oregon

Oregon was the first U.S. state to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of cannabis, and among the first to authorize its use for medical purposes.

In Oregon, possession laws are different for marijuana use at home versus away from home (Public vs. Private), which extend to edibles and other marijuana products. Because of this, it is advised that smokers who possess cannabis when away from home should always have an I.D. on them for proof of age.

If you are of legal age and are in a public place, you may possess:

  • 1 ounce of usable cannabis (i.e. dried flower)
  • 24 ounces of usable cannabis if you are a registered Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMPP) cardholder or caregiver
  • 1 ounce of cannabis concentrates or extracts
  • Note: Cannabis concentrates must be purchased from a licensed retail location, possession of homemade concentrates remains illegal.
  • 16 ounces of cannabis edibles in solid form
  • 72 ounces of cannabis products in liquid form
  • 10 cannabis seeds
  • 50 seeds if you are a registered Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMPP) cardholder
  • 4 immature cannabis plants

Smoking marijuana in public in Oregon is illegal, even if you’re smoking with an often-discreet vape pen. As a result, you can only consume at home or on private property. This means no bars, community parks, public outdoor smoking areas, on buses and airplanes, or federal land. Getting busted smoking weed in public could result in negative legal ramifications including fines and even jail time.

Places to visit in Oregon

Oregon is an exciting destination for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers, boasting over 360 miles of scenic coastline along with a varied landscape comprising mountains, trees, rivers, and fossil-studded desert. Oregon is equally renowned for its urban elegance, in addition to its natural beauty. Portland, the state's largest city, has an international reputation for drawing visitors with an offbeat, friendly culture. Here are the best places in Oregon to visit.

Portland

There’s never a dull moment in Portland, where an excellent combination of outdoor recreation, historic architecture, museums, galleries, and a thriving arts scene await you. First-time visitors can get an introduction to the city on one of several Portland walking tours, which take in everything from historic sites to breweries and coffee roasters. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and the historic Pittock Mansion are must-sees, while families can have hours of fun at the Portland Zoo and the interactive Portland Children’s Museum. The city is known for its gardens – be sure to visit the International Rose Test Garden, the Portland Japanese Garden, and the Portland Art Museum and Sculpture Garden, or go hiking, biking, or strolling in Washington Park.

Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake National Park sits in the Cascade Mountains of southwest Oregon, with a landscape like nowhere else. In fact, it is not a crater, but rather an ancient caldera of an extinct volcano, Mount Mazama, and its lava cliffs rise to altitudes of up to 2,000 feet around the intensely blue and extremely deep lake. Rim Drive circles the lake in a clockwise direction just a short distance from the crater's bottom. It starts at Rim Village and is accessible only by vehicle during warm weather months. Snowshoers and cross-country skiers will use the unplowed highway for winter travel in the winter. Crater Lake National Park is a popular weekend trip to Oregon, and camping is accessible on two established campgrounds, with most of the Mazama Campground sites being found. Extended hiking and backpacking opportunities can be found away from the rim in the national park, and spectacular trails such as Watchman Peak offer great views of the caldera. In the summer months, head to Cleetwood Cove to discover the lake itself, from where cruises depart for Wizard Island.

Multnomah Falls

The majestic Multnomah Falls are a must-see attraction for those who are in Oregon's Mount Hood / Columbia Gorge area. The falls can be reached on Portland's I-84 in just 30 minutes. Legend has it that the falls once provided a very private bathing spot for a princess, but everybody can enjoy the sight of this impressive natural masterpiece today. You can see part of the 611-foot falls from the highway, but you'll need to take a five-minute walk to the mist-shrouded base of the falls to get the full picture. A quick climb from there will take you to the Benson Bridge which offers a great viewpoint.
