Upon passing the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act in 1998, Oregon became the second state in the United States to remove criminal penalties for medical marijuana patients. The act allows for the cultivation, possession, and use of medical marijuana by doctor recommendation for patients with medical conditions.
There are now three classes of cardholders: the patient, the primary caregiver, and the person responsible for the marijuana grow site. The patient, primary caregiver and grower may possess in combination up to 24 ounces of useable medical marijuana. The patient decides where their medicinal marijuana will be kept. The patient, primary caregiver or grower may possess in combination up to 6 mature plants and 18 seedlings. The medical marijuana, plants, and grow site card, are the property of the patient regardless of the garden location.
To obtain a medical marijuana card in the state of Oregon, one must visit a local physician and be given a recommendation by them. Upon completion of the application process, you will receive a medical marijuana card that can be used at the medical dispensary of your choosing.
