It is funny that the two things my area is known for I don’t partake in.
What Portland Or has is legal recreational cannabis and coffee.
Recreational cannabis is allowed here. That means you can walk into a dispensary and buy with a medical marijuana card. You need to be 21 years old and there are restrictions on what you can buy. However, it is just too darn easy to pick up legal weed. There are flowers and oils to smoke. You can choose an edible in the form of a baked good, candy, cooking product or even a drink. There are topicals, concentrates and tinctures. Even with all of these options, weed just isn’t for me. I recognize that Poland has some mighty fine cannabis and offers lots of choice, but I just don’t care for it. I don’t need it recreationally or medically. Another thing I am not into is coffee. I don’t want to become dependent on caffeine. I don’t like that it can stain your teeth and keep you up at night. Also, coffee isn’t a necessary good and is always increasing in price. It makes sense not to get addicted to this useless beverage. Portland has some great coffee options. Some of the roasters are Coava, Courier Coffee, Extracto Coffee, and Coffeehouse Northwest. Stumptown is probably the most famous because it is sold to New York. I haven’t tried any of those however. Coffee smells great and looks pretty, but I know it tastes gross. So I just don’t utilize the two best goods of my area.
