Oregon Joins Colorado and Washington with Recreational Marijuana Legalization

Oregon has become the 3rd state to legalize recreational marijuana. Colorado and Washington voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2012. The vote is another huge victory for marijuana legalization advocates.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will regulate marijuana production and sales. Tax revenue generated by marijuana will go to public schools, mental health and addiction services, law enforcement and the Oregon Health Authority.

Just like in Colorado and Washington, using marijuana in public or while driving will still be illegal. Current medical marijuana laws won’t change.

It will take some time for regulations to be finalized. It is expected that Oregon recreational marijuana sales will begin in July, 2015. The green revolution continues. Not since the repeal of prohibition has the nation experienced such radical change.
