Oregon has had medical marijuana laws in place since 1998. Patients in Oregon may possess up to 24 ounces of marijuana at any given time and are free to cultivate up to 6 mature and 18 immature marijuana plants at a time. Numerous state-licensed dispensaries operate in Oregon on both a recreational and medical basis, and access is restricted to in-state residents. An estimated 71,904 patients are currently registered with Oregon’s medical marijuana program. Patients can apply for a medical marijuana card in Oregon through the state’s Health Authority.  You must be over the age of 18 to submit an application or have a designated caregiver over the age of 18 submit an application in your name. Applications can only be accepted by mail and come with a $200 processing fee. Patients are required to show ID and proof of residency, as well as proof of a medical marijuana evaluation by an Oregon-licensed doctor. Oregon’s medical marijuana program allows for 10 core qualifying conditions and is highly flexible:
  • Alzheimer's disease
