OREGON: Oregon is just days away from legalizing recreational marijuana, and the Portland Police Bureau is explaining just how much weed you can carry in the most Portland way possible — by comparing it to a Voodoo doughnut.
You can legally carry an ounce of marijuana in public, or about the size of a voodoo doll doughnut. You can have 8 ounces with you at home, and anything over that is illegal (that’s a lot of doughnuts).
On a more serious note, you can be arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants or get a citation for using in a public place. Along those lines, if you do see someone using marijuana in a public place, police urge you NOT to call 911, unless there is an immediate public safety risk.
