On November 4, 2014, Oregon voters legalized sales, possession and personal use of marijuana by adults in private residences. Recreational marijuana became available for sale at medical marijuana dispensaries on October 1, 2015 in many Oregon communities; Albany prohibited those sales.
This page provides information about marijuana in Albany through links to Albany ordinances and a resolution related to marijuana facilities and sales; links to minutes and/or video of each Albany City Council meeting in 2014 and 2015 at which marijuana was discussed and decisions were made; Oregon law related to recreational marijuana; and evolving OLCC regulations.
In November 2016, Linn County voters denied a measure to ban recreational marijuana production and sales. Additionally, Albany voters approved a tax on recreational marijuana sales.
