You don’t find too many police departments creating cute little visualizations… but Portland Police Bureau did just that. As of June 1st, Oregon’s Measure 91 allows adults 21 and older to posses up to one ounce of marijuana outside the home, eight ounces in the house, and four pot plants. For those who don’t want to carry a scale around with them, PPB created this visualization comparing the legal limits for weed… to a doughnut!!!
Oregon has much higher limits than other jurisdictions allowing possession, with Colorado, Washington State and Alaska allowing up to one ounce, and Washington DC allowing two ounces. While a doughnut may not seem like the most accurate way to measure your mountain of weed, research from Colorado suggests that arrests for over-possession are significantly less than possession arrests prior to legalization.
