While recreational marijuana customers in Oregon have been able to buy up to 7 grams of flower since last October, edibles, topicals and extracts haven't been available to them until now. That all changes on Thursday, June 2, when all of the above will be available -- albeit in limited amounts -- to adults 21 and older.

"Licensed and regulated sales have already created jobs and generated revenue for our great state, and the sky hasn't fallen like our opponents predicted," said Anthony Johnson, chief petitioner for Measure 91, which legalized marijuana in the state.

Starting on June 2nd, Oregon will take the next step as adults 21 and over will be able to purchase:

• One marijuana-infused edible per day containing up to 15 mg of THC
• Any amount of cannabis-infused topical products containing no more than 6 percent THC
• One receptacle of cannabis extract containing up to 1,000 mg of THC

"This is an exciting time for the marijuana industry and movement as we continue to show the nation that regulation is a much better policy than prohibition," Johnaon said. "If you are looking for potential locations to acquire the new cannabis-infused products, we have some recommendations, as the dispensaries below have proven to be good actors and have pledged a portion of proceeds towards New Approach Oregon, so we can continue fighting for effective marijuana laws and regulations."

"We are proud to have helped lead the effort to allow for the early sale of cannabis and infused products, along with the further reduction of criminal penalties," Johnson said. "We look forward to implementing more sensible policies in localities across the state and further improving state law, including the addition of a low-income patient program."
