An Oregon cannabis registry identification cardholder or the designated primary medical marijuana caregiver of the cardholder may possess up to six mature marijuana plants and 24 ounces of usable medical marijuana. A marijuana registry identification cardholder and the designated primary cannabis caregiver of the cardholder may possess a combined total of up to 18 marijuana seedlings. State-qualified patients who possess cannabis in amounts exceeding the new state guidelines will no longer retain the ability to argue an “affirmative defense” of medical necessity at trial. Patients who fail to register with the state, but who possess medical cannabis in amounts compliant with state law, still retain the ability to raise an “affirmative defense” at trial. The law also redefines “mature plants” to include only those cannabis plants that are more than 12 inches in height and diameter, and establish a state-registry for those authorized to produce medical cannabis to qualified patients with their Oregon Marijuana Card.
