Oregon Will Allow the Sale of Pot October 1
Hard on the heels of Washington state, Oregon will join the pot farm.
Gov. Kate Brown signed off on legislation that will allow the sales of pot to begin October 1st. The bill, which goes into effect a year earlier than expected, allows existing medical marijuana facilities to sell pot to adults of legal age.
Marijuana possession became legal June 1st, but authorities say they're about a year away from having stores ready. In the meantime, adults will be able to get their fix at the medical stores.
Consumers will be allowed to buy limited quantities of seeds, dried leaves, and plant starts, but not edibles. They will become available when the stores open.
Oregon is going about it differently than Washington by allowing adults to buy from medical marijuana dispensaries until the state stores are open.
