Medical marijuana was introduced into Oregon through Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA) in 1998. OMMA has since been revised to regulate dispensaries, though production and cultivation facilities remain mostly unregulated. The state is currently accepting applications for licensed dispensaries. In November 2014, through Measure 91, Oregonians voted to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and older, and to regulate and tax marijuana like alcohol. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will oversee the implementation of Measure 91 and will license and regulate marijuana businesses throughout the state.
