Recreational marijuana hits the shelves today in Oregon, making October 1st a big day for both marijuana advocates and critics of the new law.
Mark Katches, the editor of the Oregonian, wrote: “You may never want to buy it, sell it, grow it, or smoke it. But there’s no escaping the fact that legal marijuana will impact all of us – whether it’s a proliferation of new shops sprouting up in our communities, the potential impact on neighborhood safety or the way drug testing is managed in the places we work.”
More than 200 dispensaries have told the state they plan on selling recreational bud. You can find a map of them all here, though not all will necessarily be selling cannabis on Thursday.
If you do plan on shopping, remember that you need to bring a government-issued ID and have cash on hand — pot shops aren’t taking cards yet.
