Happy 420 — or, October 1, stoners of the northwestern Untied States. You can now legally purchase marijuana for recreational consumption in the state of Oregon. Measure 91, which legalized recreational cannabis use for adults 21 and older in Oregon, was passed in the November election last year and went into effect on July 1 — but the state of Oregon did not immediately allow for recreational sales. That means adults in the state could grow weed and give or receive it from others, but were not legally allowed to buy it until Thursday. Existing medical marijuana dispensaries can now sell one-quarter ounce of marijuana flower to adults per day. Naturally, people lined up to purchase it just like they would a new iPhone.
