Well… Portland scored another first in the nation accolade this week when the country’s first pot cafe, called appropriately enough the Cannabis Cafe opened in North Portland. Now a second is looks to be on the way in SE Portland, called Highway 420.
But Portland has not turned into Amsterdam, yet. These two new cafes are for Oregon medical-marijuana patients only as a place for them to get together, socialize and self-medicate. You will need to have a valid medical marijuana card to enter and a NORMAL membership.
