Oregon has long been involved in the movement to alter the national thinking on cannabis use and possession. The state was the first in the nation to decriminalize the possession of very small amounts of cannabis in 1973, and in 1998 it became the fourth state in the US to legalize the plant for medicinal purposes. This followed California’s 1996 legalization of medicinal use and occurred in the same year as Alaska and Washington.
All of these 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Oregon Silver Rounds are available to you today inside of protective blisterproof cards. The rounds come with their own numbered certificate card and feature an antique polish unique to Blockchain Mint. This antique polish provides a brushed, rustic look to the finish of the rounds.
On the reverse face of 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Oregon Silver Rounds is an image of Oregon’s state seal with alterations made to reflect the recent legalization of cannabis. You’ll notice an ox-driven cart, the heraldic eagle of the United States, and a single hand holding up a cannabis leaf. Inscriptions of “State of Oregon” and “Measure 91 – 2015” are featured on this side.
Voters in Oregon were given the chance during the 2014 midterm elections to determine whether or not to legalize cannabis in the state. Measure 91 was introduced on the ballot and passed by voters in 2014, making Oregon the third state behind Colorado and Washington to legalize cannabis. The move was so popular and demand so high that Governor Kate Brown signed an emergency bill in 2015 to allow for early sales of recreational cannabis, bumping up the date from 2016.
The obverse of all 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Silver Rounds features a cannabis leaf in the center with handcuffed hands and a chain border design. These elements indicate the federal government’s attempts to tamp down the legalization movement by maintaining federal laws criminalizing cannabis.
