Oregon Health Authority unveiled Wednesday draft rules to allow recreational marijuana sales Oct. 1.

Medical marijuana dispensaries will be allowed to sell seeds, dried leaves and flowers. They must also adhere to reporting guidelines.

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.


Marijuana outposts will also be mandated to display a sign at their entrances.

— Dispensary staff must distribute with every recreational purchase a state-issued information card about marijuana.

— While the state will continue to require dispensaries to record the names of medical marijuana patients buying cannabis, recreational shoppers’ names will not be tracked. The state will, however, require dispensaries to record the birthdate of people making recreational purchases. 

— Dispensaries are not allowed to sell more than a quarter-ounce of cannabis to a recreational consumer, however there’s nothing in the rules that prevents the person from going to other shops to purchase more.

Guidelines are still expected for growers, testing labs, processors and others.
