This is How You Will Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Oregon

STEP 1

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

Schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in OR through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.

STEP 2

TALK TO A DOCTOR

Consult with a doctor for 15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

STEP 3

GET APPROVED

Once you are approved, you'll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

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.
