Here’s the big question we get asked all of the time:
Is marijuana now legal in Portland?
Only people who have a medical marijuana card can purchase and possess marijuana (see our FAQ for how to obtain a card). Legal recreational marijuana possession will not take effect until July 1, 2015. Until then, possession of 1 to 4 ounces is considered a misdemeanor and possessing more is a felony. Possession of less than an ounce remains a non-criminal violation through July 1, 2015.
