I wondered if the marijuana laws would be as lenient as those in Eugene, Oregon, if or when our state legalized medical and recreational marijuana.
My sister lives in Eugene, Oregon, and recently got her medical marijuana card. She couldn’t wait to tell me that with her new medical ID card, she and her caretaker could grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use. She could have up to 8 ounces of usable marijuana in her possession. She said there were a few stipulations to growing medical marijuana, one of which was that you could not be within 1000 feet of a school. The medical marijuana had to be grown in a patch that the public eye could not see. If you didn’t have a medical marijuana ID card, but preferred to use recreational marijuana, you could grow plants for personal use. If you were to purchase marijuana at a marijuana dispensary, you can purchase up to 18 ounces at any dispensary in Eugene, Oregon. I wondered if the marijuana laws would be as lenient as those in Eugene, Oregon, if or when our state legalized medical and recreational marijuana. I was telling my husband about the four plant limits for recreational marijuana, and six plant limits for medical marijuana. My husband chuckled and told me that before he quit smoking, four plants would be enough to last him a full year. He couldn’t figure out how anyone could use all the marijuana harvested from six plants in just one year. When he asked about the marijuana seeds, I told him I hadn’t asked that question and I was sure glad I hadn’t because I’m sure she would’ve had another long list of facts for me on that question.
