PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have released draft rules for medical marijuana dispensaries selling legal recreational pot.
The Oregon Health Authority’s rules limit the type of marijuana products sold as of Oct. 1 to seeds, dried leaves and flowers and non-flowering plants. As expected, edibles won’t be sold to recreational users at medical marijuana dispensaries.
The products can be purchased in limited quantities, including up to one-quarter ounce of marijuana flowers or leaves per day.
Only adults age 21 and older will be able to enter the dispensaries, which will verify age via a state or federally issued ID. Each purchase will be recorded.
Lawmakers passed legislation to temporarily allow recreational sales at medical dispensaries because full retail marijuana sales are not to begin until late in 2016.
