On November 4, 2014, Oregon voters passed ballot measure 91, the Control, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act. This measure retires several criminal statutes against the possession and use of marijuana by adults.

Measure 91 also establishes the basis of commercial production and processing of recreational marijuana, hemp, and other cannabis products within the state, while also instituting strict licensing, regulation, and taxation.

Several provisions of the measure and the language therein were modified by the Oregon Legislature in HB 3400 A, passed June 2015 and to become operative January 1, 2016. New residency requirements for licensees and changes that affect medical marijuana dispensaries are among the most important changes in this house bill.
