    In 1973, Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis. Possession of 28.35 grams (1 ounce) or less is a violation (not a crime) punishable by a $500 to $1,000 fine. Possession of 1 ounce to 110 grams is punishable by 10 years in prison, and possession of more than 110 grams is a felony with punishment depending on the defendant's prior record.
    Then in 1998, Oregon voters, via ballot measure 67, legalized it.

    I guess my confusion was either 1973 or 1998 being considered recent.

    The 1998 law legalized medically endorsed use and possession. This year's ballot initiative will allow for recreational use and possession (as in CO).

    Right...pretty sure the only 2 states which have "legalized" are Washington and Colorado. Was probably just an error on Garhkal's part which he is now trying to cover. No biggy.

    I knew oregon was pushing it even more than they already had it, but new it was already legal for medical use there and pot was 'decriminalized' so people having it were no longer being arrested.
