“I just smoked 10 minutes ago.”
In Clackamas, just outside Portland, Oregon, I entered Stoney Only marijuana dispensary. I expected them to resist being on camera, as had another pot store I visited. But after talking to a young man behind the counter, he immediately got the owner, who happily sat down with me.
Owner Michael and employees shared about the health benefits of using cannabis, about their thoughts on being at the forefront of this new industry, about the people’s response to legal pot, and about their own use of this drug. Theirs were a set of high-minded Voices of the Pacific Northwest (VPNW).
