PORTLAND, OR -- Deschutes County ranks among the top 10 for per capita legal marijuana sales in the state. The Portland Business Journal compiled the rankings based on 2017 data from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, for the 25 Oregon counties where retail outlets are allowed. 

 

Statewide, recreational sales topped $520 million, last year; about a third of that occurred in Multnomah County. However, if you break down the numbers per resident, the state's most populated county comes in fourth.
 
Deschutes County is in seventh place with over $32 million in sales - about $175 per resident. Jefferson County came in 13th. Its nearly $2.5 million in sales equals $104 per person. Crook County didn't make the list, since retail outlets are banned in that county. Click HERE to view stats for each county in the state. 
 
The highest ranking was Baker County at $16 million in sales; that's a whopping $960 per person living there. The rural eastern Oregon county is along the Idaho border, which is the only neighboring state where recreational pot is not legal.
