Public health officials in Oregon just drafted new rules this week that determine how many plants medical marijuana card holders are allowed to grow at home or at a site that is registered with the state.

These are the rules for patients growing for themselves at their residence:

Patients and their caregivers may possess a total of six mature plants and a dozen immature plants. Those limits include any plants they opt to grow under the state’s recreational marijuana law. Under state law, households may grow up to four plants for recreational purposes.

The law does not define the size of immature plants in this scenario.

A residence may have no more than a dozen mature plants and two dozen immature plants. That limit includes recreational plants.

Grow sites in residential neighborhoods in cities:

May have a maximum of 12 mature plants

24 immature plants over 24 inches high

Unlimited number of immature plants less than 24 inches high

Grow sites outside of cities and residential areas:

May have a maximum of 48 mature plants

96 immature plants over 24 inches high

Unlimited number of immature plants less than 24 inches high

The state has grandfathered into the system grow sites that have continuously operated since Jan. 1, 2015.

Grandfathered grow sites within city limits and residential areas:

May have a maximum of 12-24 mature plants

48 immature plants over 24 inches high

Unlimited number of immature plants less than 24 inches high

Grandfathered grow sites outside of city limits and residential areas:

May have a maximum of 48-96 mature plants

192 immature plants over 24 inches high

Unlimited number of immature plants less than 24 inches high

The maximum number of plants for these sites is based on how many patients have been continuously served by the grow site since 2015.
