Marijuana law: Oregon’s recreational marijuana laws are in effect. That means adults age 21 and older can legally possess and use recreational marijuana. Please be sure to learn what’s legal and what’s not.
Eclipse lodging: The Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ) recommends that visitors with hotel reservations during the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 contact the hotel directly as soon as possible to confirm that their reservations will be honored at the originally advertised price and to make sure that the reservation has not been canceled. Hotels must honor originally advertised prices, regardless of whether the prices are advertised directly by the hotel or through a third party. Any visitors encountering problems with hotel reservations should contact DOJ’s consumer hotline by calling 877-877-9392 or filing an online complaint https://justice.oregon.gov/complaints/
