A recently amended rule by the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission ups the amount of marijuana that adults are allowed to purchase. Adults can now buy up to two ounces of marijuana from approved retailers.
The Commission, in a December 28, 2021 meeting, approved the new rules and said that they will help “streamline oversight of the industry, decrease violations, expand choices for consumers and help prevent children from accessing hemp products containing THC,” according to a news release from the Commission.
The new rule went into effect on January 1, 2022.
In 2021, Oregon lawmakers passed Senate Bill 408, which allowed for the increase in marijuana flower that can be purchased by adults over the age of 21 to two ounces. Additionally, home delivery of marijuana will now be allowed across city and county lines as long as local authorities approve.
The commission will also begin accepting applications for marijuana edibles that exceed 50mg THC in the package. These edibles will not be eligible for sale until April 1, 2022.
