Emerge Law Group, a boutique law firm in Portland, Oregon, has authored a series of posts that are very helpful for those navigating the legal weed industry in Oregon as Measure 91 continues to roll out in this state.
In this post, Emerge attorney and shareholder Genny Kiley helps growers and patients understand how 6 plants per an Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) patient and 4 plants per household in Oregon for residents intersect.
From Kiley’s research on the opinion posted by the OR Department of Justice, this is what we can glean about this situation:
OMMP grow site located at a patient’s residence may have:
- 6 mature medical marijuana plants (a per-patient limit), and
- 4 recreational marijuana plants (a per-household limit).
In addition, a patient may possess up to:
- 24 ounces of usable medical marijuana (a per-patient limit), and
- 8 ounces of usable recreational marijuana (a per-household limit).
There are different usable marijuana possession limits for growers, depending on whether the grower is producing marijuana at a patient’s residence.
Members of the public may possess only:
- 4 recreational marijuana plants at his or her household (a per-household limit),
- 8 ounces of usable recreational marijuana (a per-household limit), and
- 1 ounce of usable marijuana in a public place.
