Oregon launches campaign saying what's legal with marijuana

Jun 17, 2015 4:11 PM by News Staff

As Oregonians prepare to enter the brave new world of legal marijuana, the state wants folks to know a few things.

With the slogan, "Educate Before You Recreate," The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has launched a $350,000 public education campaign to put across the message that although it will be legal for anyone over the age of 21 to possess and use marijuana starting July 1, it is not yet legal for anyone but medical marijuana patients to buy it - including across the border in Washington state, where recreational marijuana is already legal.

The $350,000 campaign includes paid ads, an official website (www.whatslegaloregon.com ) with a PowerPoint presentation, and posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
