On Oct. 1, 2015, adults age 21 and over have been allowed to purchase up to 7 grams of cannabis flowers at a time from licensed medical cannabis dispensaries while the state creates a new regulatory system for recreational sales. So I thought that a little fact finding tour of Portland was in order.
