Legalizing Freedom: Marijuana Sales in Portland, Oregon Begin

October 1st marks a historic day for the Oregon cannabis community the next step towards ending cannabis prohibition. While there is so much work to be done, today is a day for celebrating how far we have come thanks to so many hard-working advocates. I had the honor of making the first purchase at Cannabliss, a flagship Portland dispensary that has been a model for the state. Canabliss’ owner, Matt Price, is a good friend of mine and I was pleased to accept his offer to be first in line when his dispensary first allowed sales to non-patient adults.

Matt has hosted tours with public officials and has been a great representative for the cannabis industry, demonstrating the industry’s willingness to embrace sensible regulations while always caring for sick and disabled patients.”
