Oregonians voted to legalize marijuana for adult use in November 2014, through Measure 91. While the use of marijuana is still a Schedule 1 narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act, and thus, still federally illegal, Measure 91 legalizes the cultivation, manufacture, possession, use, and distribution of marijuana and marijuana products at the state level. Since Measure 91’s passage, a highly regulated industry has evolved around the cultivation, processing, and sale of marijuana items.
