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 ...

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 ...
