On Monday, Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, according to a news release from the Oregon Health Authority.
Oregon will allow people 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana for personal use.
The measure allows adults 21 and over to grow up to six marijuana plants and four marijuana plants at home.
The measure allows Oregonians to grow six marijuana gardens in their homes and will allow individuals to possess a total of six ounces of marijuana.
It also allows Oregon to create a marijuana testing program and a licensing system for retail dispensaries and processors.
This comes just a week after Washington state became the 23rd state in a week to legalize recreational marijuana.
Oregon joins a growing list of states that are considering legalizing marijuana, including Colorado, Washington and Alaska.
This is the first time Oregon has been in the midst of legalization, and the announcement follows a similar announcement last week by Colorado that it was moving ahead with legalization of recreational marijuana, but not to a formal legalization program.
Washington State became the third state to legalize marijuana last week when it became the 15th state to do so.
Colorado and Oregon have also passed laws allowing people to grow and possess small amounts of marijuana and allow people to use the drug in certain areas, according for the Associated Press.
A handful of states are expected to take action next week, including California, Nevada and Maine.
