An Initial Assessment of Cannabis in Oregon

Oregon has had a state-authorized medical cannabis system since 1998, and, in November 2014, Oregon voters approved the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act (commonly known as Measure 91) to legally commercialize non-medical retail cannabis in the state implemented as of July 2015. In recognition of the need to continuously examine the effects of cannabis production, distribution, and consumption in Oregon, the Oregon-Idaho HIDTA established a research project based upon a framework of shared concerns – areas of common interest to both the federal and state government – and then impartially gathered and examined readily available data, which is relevant to those concerns. The project establishes an empirical foundation on which ongoing strategic analyses can be conducted. The project findings have been published in An Initial Assessment of Cannabis Production, Distribution, and Consumption in Oregon 2018 - An Insight Report. This research effort does not purport to be a policy evaluation or policy performance review; rather this assessment provides a verifiable analysis of assorted information and data, which has been centralized as part of this effort.
