Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Rules

Always check with an attorney about Medical Marijuana use but the general guidelines about the Medical Marijuana restrictions in the state of Oregon are:

What is the number of plants allowed?

Oregon law allows those who are registered as Medical Marijuana users to cultivate up to 24 plants at once as long as no more than 18 are immature plants and six are mature plants. In addition, you can possess up to 24 ounces of dried Marijuana that is ready to use. 
What are the medical conditions covered under the laws?

Conditions approved for Medical Marijuana use include but are not limited to: 

  • Any condition that results in severe, chronic pain,
  • Glaucoma
  • Cancer
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Seizure disorders
  • Cachexia
Oregon's Health Division of the Oregon Department of Human Resources is also authorized to approve other conditions and add them to the list. 

What are the legal protections?

You are protected from criminal prosecution for the possession and cultivation of Marijuana if you are registered as a qualifying Medical Marijuana user and maintain no more than the allowable number plants or amounts of dried product. 

What is the registration process?

Oregon does require you to register for the right to use Medical Marijuana. Out of state Marijuana cards are not accepted. 
Sharing your medically approved Marijuana or Medical Marijuana card with others could bring criminal charges.
