"Portland Allows Medical Marijuana Delivery"

Oregon is only one of many states that has legalized medical and recreational marijuana (the others are Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Washington, D.C., California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Maine). Oregon was one of the original pioneers in the space, however, and is rapidly producing gains in its state economy due to the legalization of marijuana. Colorado still stands at the top of the heap as far as marijuana revenue is concerned, but its industry may soon be eclipsed by the state of California, which just legalized recreational marijuana in November. California’s new regulations and integration with their current medical marijuana system is still being worked on, however, and the laws may not allow for recreational marijuana sales until 2018. Until then, Oregon, Washington, Massachusetts, and Colorado will be raking in the majority of the recreational marijuana dough – but some states, including Oregon, are discovering a new and very popular way to make money off of marijuana that doesn’t require growing, cultivating, or producing it: delivery to your doorstep.

Oregon’s Marijuana Laws

In Oregon today, hemp, medical marijuana, and recreational marijuana have all been legalized. There is no penalty at all for possession of an ounce or less, and a $650 fine for two ounces or less, meaning Oregon has decriminalized marijuana to a large extent. Possession of 8 ounces or less of marijuana in an adult’s home also carries no penalty. An ounce or less of marijuana can be delivered, while 16 ounces or more with compensation carries a year in jail along with a $6,250 fine. An adult can possess up to 72 ounces of liquid home-infused hash or concentrates, and 16 ounces or less of solid home-infused hash or concentrates; there is no penalty for up to 1 ounce of marijuana extract in the home, either. Up to four plants can be grown in a home.

Oregon’s New Marijuana Delivery Services

In Oregon, legal marijuana delivery has been approved by its citizens, a service that has been provided to customers in California for some time, now. One of the benefits to being a marijuana delivery service (either by mail or by a person in or on a vehicle) is that no cultivation fees, lab fees, or production fees are needed – the delivery services usually work hand-in-hand with established cultivation, production, or dispensary facilities in order to procure the products that their customers want delivered. All that’s really needed to start up a delivery operation is a clean driving record, a vehicle, and some industry contacts. The Portland city council is now blazing a trail for other Oregon cities, and unanimously voted to change the city’s marijuana code to allow delivery of marijuana to consumers. The council has added a delivery-only marijuana business license to include marijuana retail couriers a way to be a part of the industry legally. Although the couriers will not be able to sell to dispensaries or retail marijuana operations, they could receive and deliver marijuana orders from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the city of Portland. Courier headquarters have to be located at least 1,000 feet away from schools, but could still deliver to closer homes. They must be located at least 1,000 feet from other marijuana-related businesses, as well. Portland Mayor Charlie Hales noted that he expects the measure to increase the small business presence in the community, and help microbusinesses improve in the area.

Other New Portland Marijuana Licenses & Changes

In addition to the delivery service license, the notoriously liberal city of Portland has added three other licenses. The first new cultivation license is intended for growers who want to have 625 square feet or less of marijuana at their location; the second is for 1,250 square feet of marijuana cultivation, and the third is intended for “micro-wholesalers” who resell seeds or immature plants from other micro-producers. Marijuana business hours have also been brought into line with state business hours, which are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., which may help increase the flow of business in Portland for marijuana operations. Portland is actively increasing its marijuana businesses through these new regulations, and other cities and states would do well to pay attention.
