USB port troubles with 17.1

I'm using Zorin 17.1 on a desktop with 32gb ram and 1TB SSD. I have a mouse, keyboard and Wacom tablet, all through usb ports.
I have installed the Arduino IDE and am programming some esp32s with it. I can only send it through the usb port once, and then after that, it tells me I don't have permission to use that port. I can change it with a sudo chmod command, but I have to do that from there on out until I restart the computer.
I am the only user and have admin checked on in my account. Is there something I can do to remedy this? Thanks!
