Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4
Legislation: Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana is only a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $500 – $1,000.
Conditional discharge (where the offender may opt for probation rather than trial on his first prosecution) is possible for possession offenses(!).
Possession of one ounce or more is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Recreational smoking is somewhat decriminalized as users and dealers with small amounts (1 oz. or less) are a low priority for law enforcement. Marijuana is legal for medical purposes in Oregon, but you must have a permit that is issued by the state with proof of doctor’s prescription (which may or may not be easy to obtain, depending on your connections).
Law enforcement: You should be fine, but as always don’t do anything stupid. No jail time almost always. MIP if your under 18.
Where to buy marijuana: Downtown you’ll see PLENTY of hippies, and many other people that are tokers. Just ask around, they’ll be glad to help. And DON’T get a pothead confused with one of the many tourists, cause there’s a lot of them too…..
Marijuana prices: $5-15 per gram
