What is the legal age to use recreational marijuana?

jamingWhats Legal Oregon

You can possess, use and buy recreational marijuana if you are 21 and older. If you are younger, it’s illegal.

Recreational users of legal age may purchase seeds, immature marijuana plants, cannabinoid products, and useable marijuana from licensed OLCC retailers. And are allowed 4 marijuana plants per household.

Recreational marijuana cannot be used in public, even by those of legal age.

Employers and landlords retain the right to restrict use, even by those of legal age:

  • Legalization did not affect employment law. Check with your employer regarding their rules and restrictions regarding marijuana use
  • Check with your landlord regarding their rules about using marijuana, growing marijuana, or making goods containing marijuana in their home or property.
