SALEM, OR -- Starting on July 1, Oregonians can possess and use recreational marijuana with limits. But people may not be clear on what's allowed and what isn't. That's why the Oregon Liquor Control Commission has launched a new website to help people know what's legal.
Tom Towslee with the OLCC warns police will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers as recreational pot becomes legal. "There's not a test to see if someone is intoxicated from marijuana. But driving impaired is illegal regardless of what is causing the impairment. I think police do a good job of catching impaired drivers and I anticipate as July 1st appraoches, they'll be more alert to that issue."
The new state website contains key information on what you need to know -- like you can possess up to eight ounces of marijuana in your home and up to one ounce outside the home. And you can grow up to four plants per residence, out of public view. But you can only use recreational marijuana if you are 21 or older.
