Buying Pot Is Legal in Portland. The Mercury Investigates.

Portland, I have seen your future and it is mildly impressed. As you'll know by now, Oregon opened up recreational marijuana sales for the first time in its history at midnight, and a handful of retailers who weren't cowed by nonexistent regulations went for it—splaying their doors promptly at 12:01, offering muffins, donuts, and ham pinwheels, and cheerfully pushing marked-up buds on willing customers. Remember 15 months ago, when Washington opened up pot sales? No? Well I do. In Vancouver that day, there was just one pot store. A band played on the corner, and the mayor showed up, and people chuckled ...

Recreational Pot Users Score Bags of Bud at Oregon Shops

PORTLAND, Ore. — Excited shoppers looking to score some of the first recreational marijuana sold legally in Oregon bought up baggies of bud early Thursday, taking advantage of door-buster prices and other deals.

At Shango Premium Cannabis in Portland, co-founder Shane McKee said the first sale came about a minute after midnight and many others quickly followed. "I think it's not only historical for folks in ...

You can now buy weed in the state of Oregon

Happy 420 — err, Oct. 1, stoners of the northwestern Untied States. You can now legally purchase marijuana for recreational consumption in the state of Oregon. Measure 91, which legalized recreational cannabis use for adults 21 and older in Oregon, was passed in the November election last year and went into effect on July 1 — but the state of Oregon did not immediately allow for recreational sales. That means adults in the state could grow weed and give or receive it from others, but were not legally allowed to buy it until Thursday. Existing medical marijuana dispensaries can now sell one-quarter ounce ...

Legal recreational pot sales begin in Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. — Sales of recreational marijuana began after midnight Thursday in Oregon as some dispensaries opened their doors early moments after it became legal for those 21 and older to purchase pot.

You Can Now Buy Marijuana Legally In Oregon

At 12 a.m. on Thursday, it became legal for medical dispensaries across Oregon to sell marijuana, seeds and immature plants to anyone over the age of 21. Excited customers lined up outside dispensaries in Portland, waiting for the clock to strike midnight. One of them was Davia Fleming, 29, the first in line outside Shango dispensary and therefore one of the state's first legal cannabis customers. For her, legalization means more than her ability to smoke without fear of prosecution. Cannabis keeps her stable, she said. "What a great night! It's legal!" she said. "I have ADHD so it makes thinking processes ...

The challenges of doing business in VICE CITY

A brand new industry will start operating in Oregon on the first day of October — legal recreational marijuana sales to adults. Although approved by the voters at the 2014 General Election, recreational marijuana sales are still controversial. Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, and Oregon is one of only four states to legalize it for recreational use. The Gresham City Council recently voted to ban it. But last Wednesday morning, at the Portland Business Alliance’s monthly breakfast forum, selling recreational marijuana sounded much the same as selling craft beer and distilled spirits. It featured a panel including representatives from all ...

Pot is legal in Oregon. Now what?

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Less than one day after Oregon voters legalized recreational marijuana, businesses are putting into place the plans they’ve already made. Shane McKee, the co-owner of the Shango Cannabis medical marijuana facility, told KOIN 6 News it will take time to work out the details for retailing pot. “We anticipate it taking about a year for the administrative rules to be put together,” he said. “I think the main efforts will be focused on the production of edibles and other infused products, as well as putting regulations in place for cultivation.” McKee said his store has been preparing for ...
