Heads up, Portlanders: Black Friday is coming to town this year in a whole new way.
At least twenty dispensaries across Portland will be offering the maximum amount of cannabis that recreational buyers can purchase in Oregon (7 grams, or 1/4 oz.) for only $20 — they’re calling it Green Friday.
The event was organized by the Portland Auction House and Oregon’s Cannabis Conceirge, though it was a collection of 50 different growers who contributed the 100 pounds of pot that will be sold by participating dispensaries. The quarters will come “prepackaged in a glass jar, and… with a catalog listing all the participating farms.”
The dispensaries will each be allocated only two pounds of the discounted cannabis — meaning 128 jars per participating retailer — so show up early! Not too early, though, as the event’s website duly notes: “skip the 4 a.m. Black Friday big box store drama, and mark your calendars for the lowest priced quarters of the season.”
This is the first Black Friday for which cannabis has been made legally available in Oregon.
