The Oregon Health Authority, which regulates Oregon’s medical marijuana industry, has released draft rules that will allow medical marijuana dispensaries to sell limited amounts of recreational-use marijuana, beginning Oct. 1, 2015.
Medical marijuana dispensaries will only be allowed to sell seeds, dried leaves and flowers and non-flowering plants in limited quantities for recreational users. Also beginning on Oct. 1, adults will be able to share or give away marijuana to other adults for recreational use.
Measure 91, which will allow adults 21 or older to purchase marijuana for recreational use, will be implemented in 2016 and be regulated by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which will regulate the production, processing, and commercial sale of marijuana.
Measure 91 will allow adults to possess up to eight ounces of marijuana in their home and up to one ounce of marijuana outside of their home, consume marijuana on private property, and grow up to four plants per residence.
