Located halfway between Eugene and Portland, Salem is a gorgeous city surrounded by woods and easy-rolling hills. Salem is the capital of Oregon, a paradise hidden within the Mid-Willamette Valley. It is surrounded by national parks, the city is built along the rolling Willamette River, and the Pacific ocean is only an hour to the west. Off in the distance, the snow-capped Mount Jefferson is always visible from the city, a small but icon part of the city’s scenic vista. For adventurers, Salem is an oasis hub for outdoor exploration, with year-round hiking in some of the northwest’s most beautiful national forests. Closer in, Salem is also known for its vineyards and craft breweries, along with an incredibly inviting downtown and an array of in-city parks. In Salem, adventure is always close and a good time just around the corner.
Salem is also an amazing place to visit if you’re fond of marijuana. Oregon legalized recreational weed in 2014 and has some of the strictest quality standards in America. Marijuana in Oregon is just good, and Salem is no exception. There are many dispensaries throughout the city, and some even offer delivery services. Usually, open between 7 AM and 10 PM, these dispensaries have helped produce a high-end cannabis culture that resonates throughout the city. Please note that, while marijuana is easily accessible, it is illegal to smoke in public or to drive while under the influence of any amount of marijuana.
If you are in a public place, you can possess up to one ounce of marijuana, one ounce of concentrates, 16 ounces of edibles, 72 ounces of cannabis products in liquid form, 10 cannabis seeds, and four marijuana plants. The same laws apply in private residences, but you can have up to eight ounces of cannabis.
Though it may seem like a good idea to light up while enjoying your time outdoors, it is not. It is illegal to smoke, vape or consume edibles while in public places such as bars, parks, restaurants, and in vehicles. The safest place to consume is within the privacy of your own home or on private property.
You can travel with marijuana within the state as long as it is properly sealed or in the trunk of your vehicle. It is illegal to travel outside the state even if both states have recreational marijuana laws in place. If you are flying within the state of Oregon, you can bring cannabis on the plane with you but you cannot if you are going to a different state.
Adults 21 and older can grow up to four plants in their homes. If you are growing outside, be sure the plants are well hidden by a fence or barrier. It is not recommended to grow more than the legal limit as the fines are up to $125,000.00 and prison time. If you live within 1,000 feet of a school, daycare or youth facility, you are not allowed to grow marijuana in your home.
Yes! Medical and recreational marijuana is legal in Salem, as long as you have a medical marijuana card or are at least 21 years old.
There are dozens of legal adult-use and medical dispensaries throughout Salem at which you can purchase marijuana if you have a government-issued ID or a valid medical marijuana card.
