Marijuana is now legal in Oregon, but you still can’t buy it yet


Smoke it if you’ve got it, Oregonians, because you can’t legally buy it — yet.

On Wednesday, Oregon officially joined the growing list of states where recreational marijuana use is legal.

Currently, marijuana is also legal for recreational use in Alaska, Colorado, Washington and DC. In addition, 23 states as well as DC allow some form of medical marijuana.

State voters approved measure 91 during the November election, making it legal for adults who are at least 21 to possess, cultivate and consume marijuana in Oregon. In 1998, Oregon voters passed Ballot Measure 67, allowing qualifying patients access to medical marijuana.

Although the state is still setting regulations for its recreational sales, residents can grow up to four plants and possess 8 ounces of cultivated marijuana flower inside their residences — or 1 ounce away from home.

It’s also now legal in Oregon to possess 1 pound of edibles, 72 ounces of marijuana-infused liquid and 1 ounce of marijuana extract.

Though like other states where pot is legal, such as Colorado, it is not legal to smoke in public.

In order to clear up any haziness, the state set up a website about what, exactly, is legal.
