According to an article on Marijuana.com, legislators in Oregon are gearing up to legalize marijuana on October 1st of 2015, one year earlier than originally expected. While legislators had no legal requirement to make this change, they decided to accept the will of the voters and to implement the new law sooner.
As of July 1, 2015, it became legal for those 21 and above to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, to possess up to 8 ounces in the home, and to privately cultivate up to four plants. But provisions in the initiative that gave the Oregon Liquor Control Commission the authority to begin issuing licenses for commercial growers and sellers, delayed this process until January 4, 2016, and legal dispensaries were not expected to be operational until October of 2016.
Oregon’s Gov. Brown’s office called the measure “a smart solution to a short-term logistical problem,” adding, “If marijuana is legal to use, it shouldn’t be illegal to buy.”
Congratulations, Oregon on becoming yet another legal marijuana state!
