The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Oregon

Oregon’s legal cannabis history began in 1998 with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act and was the second state to legalize medical cannabis. This act modified the state law in order to allow possession and cultivation, as well as allow doctors to prescribe cannabis for their patients suffering from specific medical conditions.

On November 3 2020, the citizens of Oregon voted yes on Oregon Measure 109 and Oregon Measure 110. Measure 109, the Psilocybin Services Act, creates a program for people ages 21 and older to purchase, possess, and consume psilocybin mushrooms at a psilocybin service center and under the supervision of a psilocybin service facilitator after attending a preparation session. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has two years to establish a program for public consumption of psilocybin mushrooms, dosage guidelines, and facility licensure protocols. The measure allows cities and counties to place refendrums on their local ballots to allow or disapprove mushrooms from being grown or distributed in their area.

Oregon Measure 110, The Drug Decriminalization and Addiction Treatment Initiative, will help cut down the number of incarcerated people for possession of Schedule 1-4 drugs such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.  People who are caught selling these drugs will still be upheld to current distribution charges. 

Instead of receiving a class A misdemeanor for possession, people will receive a Class E citation and $100 fine for or a health assessment for possession of these drugs. The health assessment will be conducted by addiction recovery centers and includes a substance use disorder screening by a licensed drug and alcohol abuse professional. This service will be established by the OHA and would provide grants to fund the government or community-run organizations to help fund and create addiction recovery centers.

Application Process and Requirements

Individuals who wish to participate in the medical cannabis program must register with the OHA to become eligible. Patients with a qualifying medical condition and a recommendation for medical cannabis from an attending physician may apply for a medical marijuana card online.

The requirements are:

Qualifying Conditions

Oregon charges patients $200 for new applications and renewals, and also offers reduced fees for citizens in need of financial assistance. The charges only $60 for persons receiving state food stamps, $50 for residents who fall under the Oregon Health Plan, and $20 for persons receiving SSI benefits or members of the U.S. Military.  

Caregivers

In Oregon, the state allows caregivers to be at least 18 years of age, as opposed to some states that mandate 21 years of age. Like a patient, caregivers must also prove that they are a resident of Oregon with a valid driver’s license or state identification card. Any caregiver requested must be listed as the patient’s particular assistant to be considered. 

Patients and caregivers are allowed to possess a certain amount of medical cannabis without penalty. Based on the state law a patient or caregiver can legally have up to 24 ounces of cannabis flower, 16 ounces of cannabis-infused products in solid form, 72 fluid ounces of cannabis-infused products in liquid form, 5 grams of cannabis extracts and concentrates, 50 cannabis seeds, or four immature cannabis flower plants. A patient and their caregiver may possess up to 6 mature plants, which must be grown at a registered grow site address. 

Possession and Cultivation

Any Oregon resident, caregiver or not, that cultivates or processes medical cannabis must undergo a background check. The cost of the mandatory background check is $35, and if approved a $200 payment for a cultivation license must also be paid. A grower must be at least 21 years of age, and is not allowed to cultivate cannabis for more than eight patients at a time, with six flower plants per patient. 

Oregon’s Legalized Marijuana Initiative, Measure 91 passed in November 2014. This measure legalizes recreational cannabis use for adults ages 21 and over. Oregon residents of age are allowed to possess up to 8 oz of dried flower and up to four plants for personal use on private property (private possession limits). Meanwhile, while in public, recreational users may possess up to 1 oz of dried flower and up to four immature plants.

Downtown galleries including the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and Portland Art Museum also make up city culture along with top-rated restaurants and bars.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.
