Marijuana use in Oregon has gradually changed. Oregon was one of the first states to change their moral views on marijuana deeming it not unsafe or destructive it was also one of the first to allow the use of medical marijuana in their state. Medical marijuana can be legally used for people who have a doctor's prescription. It is typically used for chronic pain from injury or accident and in some cases to treat cancer, migraines and as of 2013 Oregon post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans.
Overtime laws against marijuana possession has decreased slightly, however it is still illegal to possess or sell marijuana in the state of Oregon. There have even been cases of Oregon parents providing medical marijuana for their son's autism. For now Marijuana Treatment and Rehab in Oregon is still offered. However, many will still persist for the legalization of medical marijuana in Oregon.
