What does the OLCC regulate?

See information about the OLCC's regulations regarding marijuana.

As of July 1, 2015, Oregonians are allowed to grow up to four plants on their property, possess up to eight ounces of usable marijuana in their homes and up to one ounce on their person. Recreational marijuana cannot be sold or smoked in public. For more information go to What's Legal in Oregon.

Marijuana retailers may not be located within 1,000 feet of a school. All licensed businesses must be located in an area that is appropriately zoned. Also, local jurisdictions have authority to adopt reasonable regulations regarding the location of marijuana businesses, including regulations requiring that the businesses be located no more than 1000 feet from one another.

As of July 1, 2015, Oregonians can home-grow up to four plants per residence, regardless of how many people live in the residence. Four adults in one residence does not mean 16 plants. The limit is four per residence.

The OLCC has published temporary rules for Recreational Marijuana licensees (PDF).
