(Click on any question below to reveal answer)


What is the legal age to use recreational marijuana?

You can possess, use and buy recreational marijuana if you are 21 and older. If you are younger, it’s illegal.

How can I obtain it?

Adults 21 and older can share or give away recreational marijuana, receive it as a gift, grow their own, or purchase it from their favorite approved medical marijuana dispensary, such as Foster Buds.

How much marijuana can I possess?

Adults 21 and older can grow up to 4 plants on their property, possess up to 8 ounces of usable marijuana (dried marijuana flowers or leaves that are ready to smoke) in their home and carry up to 1 ounce in public. Recreational marijuana cannot be used in public, however.

How much cannabis can I grow at home?

Adults 21 and older can grow up to 4 plants per residence, regardless of how many people live in the residence. For example, two adults in one residence can only have 4 plants.

What about driving?

Driving under the influence of marijuana remains illegal. Driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) refers to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or drugged, including impairment from the use of marijuana. Please be responsible.

Where can I use it?

Adults 21 and older can use recreational marijuana at home or on private property. You can’t use recreational marijuana in public places. Measure 91 defines a public place as “a place to which the general public has access and includes, but is not limited to, hallways, lobbies, and other parts of apartment houses and hotels not constituting rooms or apartments designed for actual residence, and highways, streets, schools, places of amusement, parks, playgrounds and premises used in connection with public passenger transportation.”

A good rule of thumb: If someone outside of your home can see you, you’re probably in public.

Can I travel with marijuana?

You can’t buy marijuana in another state and bring it into Oregon, nor can you take it from Oregon across state lines. That includes to and from Washington. Taking marijuana across state lines is a federal offense.

What about edibles?

Adults 21 and older can make edible marijuana products at home or receive them as gifts. Edibles may be used only at home or in private places. As of June 2, 2016, approved medical dispensaries can sell edibles, extracts, concentrates or topicals to recreational users in limited quanities and potencies.

Where can I find more information and updates?
