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 ...

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 ...

Ars Gratia Artis – Art For The Sake of Art

Sorry to go all Latin on you, but we just couldn’t resist. For those of you who aren’t quite fluent in ancient languages, Ars gratis artis means “art for the sake of art.” It means creating something unique, something authentic, something meaningful simply because you can.   Not only is it one of the noblest sentiments ever expressed, it’s also the time-honored motto of MGM Studios. For 91 years, Ars Gratia Artis has appeared on the circular scroll in the company’s logo that precedes almost every MGM movie ever made. And when the famous MGM lion roars, it’s like he’s commanding all ...
