Oregon’s Recreational Rollout Shows States Are Finally Learning From Each Other

With Oregon legalizing marijuana for recreational use Thursday, there are early indications that states are learning from one another’s experiences.

Oregon is the third state to allow the sale of recreational marijuana, following Colorado and Washington, and its rollout is unique. Even though state officials are still working out the full battery of regulations – which are not expected before the end of 2016 – consumers can start buying marijuana now.

There are limits: Specifically, customers can purchase up to a quarter ounce of leaves and flowers, an unlimited number of seeds, and no more than four immature plants – only at a licensed medical dispensary.

But the plan shows that Oregon has been paying attention to other experiments with legal marijuana, says Paul Armentano, deputy director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
