Oregon Pushes Up Date for Recreational Marijuana Sales to October 1

Oregon residents age 21 and older will be able to legally buy recreational marijuana starting on October 1, instead of late 2016 as had been expected, The Huffington Post reports.

Governor Kate Brown signed a law this week that permits the sale of recreational marijuana in existing medical marijuana dispensaries.

Recreational marijuana became legal in Oregon on July 1. People 21 and older can possess up to eight ounces of marijuana at home and an ounce of marijuana when away from home. According to the legalization measure passed by Oregon voters in November, up to four marijuana plants can be grown per household.
