This two-volume set offers the most recent Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon Administrative Rules governing these areas of law. The set has been expanded and retitled this year to cover the new laws governing the use and sale of psilocybin products.

Some of the features of this updated set include the following:

The chapter governing recreational use of cannabis was reorganized and renumbered from Chapter 475B to new Chapter 475C.

A new Chapter 475A was passed to regulate the use and sale of psilocybin.

Numerous new statutes were passed under Chapter 571 (nursery stock; licensed agricultural crops) addressing the production and regulation of hemp. Included is an entire new section establishing the Oregon Hemp Commission.

Other statutory topics covered in this book include crimes committed while under the influence of intoxicants including cannabis and psilocybin, juveniles and cannabis use, landlord–tenant issues, and motor vehicle use while under the influence of cannabis or psilocybin.
