How much medical marijuana can I posses at anyone time?
An Oregon medical marijuana patient cannot posses more that 24 ounces of useable marijuana at any time. While the grower and caregiver also have these limits, it is a collective limit, meaning that if you, your grower and caregiver are in one car, the total you 3 can posses is 24 ounces (not 24 ounces times 3 people).

What are the federal laws in regards to state medical marijuana programs?
In the federal governments eyes, medical marijuana is still illegal. Federal law states that marijuana is an illegal drug and cannot be consumed for any reason.

President Barrack Obama however, sent a letter to the DEA and state prosecutors, requesting that medical marijuana users should not be targeted.
