There are a lot of questions surrounding what is legal or illegal regarding the possession, use, and cultivation of marijuana in Oregon.

The Deschutes County Illegal Marijuana Enforcement (DCIME) program is a partnership between the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, the Bend Police Department, and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office to address illegal marijuana activity in Deschutes County.
