Marijuana in Oregon

Medical marijuana was legalized in Oregon in 1993 and patients were able to access it from dispensaries in 2013. Recreational marijuana was legalized in 2014 and was available for consumers to purchase in 2015.

Local municipalities in Oregon can fully ban marijuana businesses in their jurisdictions.

The state’s cannabis industry is regulated by three separate agencies: the Department of Food and Agriculture regulates cultivation facilities, the Department of Public Health regulates manufacturers, and the Bureau of Cannabis Control regulates testing, distribution, and retail sales.

Local municipalities have the ability to tax, ban, and otherwise regulate cannabis businesses within their jurisdiction.


Children under the age of 18 can use medical marijuana in Oregon if they have one doctor’s certification and a parent or guardian acting in the role of caretaker.
