Oregon Doubles Purchase Limits

New rules also allow marijuana to be delivered outside city limits.

Cannabis users in Oregon can now buy twice as much marijuana in a single purchase — and could have more options to get it delivered to their homes.

The state’s Liquor and Cannabis Commission approved a series of changes to cannabis regulations at a meeting last week, the Salem Statesman Journal reports.

The panel approved increasing purchase limits from one ounce to two ounces as of Jan. 1.

Limits on edible concentrations will also double — from 50 milligrams THC to 100 milligrams — later this spring.

In addition, the commission voted to allow dispensaries to deliver to homes outside their particular city or county, as long as the local government approves.

The measures also tweak requirements related to edible hemp products, artificially derived cannabinoids, and tracking and labeling.

Regulators said the new policies would streamline state oversight and more closely match regulations in other states.

And, should federal legalization occur, they would help prepare Oregon’s cannabis industry for exports to other states.
