Q: When is it? Where is it? How much are tickets? Are there are rules?

A: It’s Friday July 3rd, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., at 723 N. Tillamook, corner of Tillamook and N. Interstate. Advance tickets are $40. You must be 21 or over, and we will be checking IDs. No alcohol or outside cannabis/cannabis products will be allowed on site, and bags will be searched. Empty water bottles will be allowed and you will be able to fill them inside the event. 

Q: What is Weed The People? Do I need an OMMP card?

A: OMMP cards are not required for entry. On July 1, cannabis becomes legal in Oregon for adults 21 and over. Weed The People (WTP) wants to celebrate this, so we’ve created a party with vendors, food trucks, a customized soundtrack, gift bags, a Growers Gifting Room, and a Vaporizer Lounge where you can try out the latest and greatest vaporizers.

Q: What is a Growers Gifting Room and a Vaporizer Lounge? 

A: Growers from around the State will be stationed in a room to meet with you and share samples of their cannabis crops, all lab tested for pesticides and molds. They will also have information about themselves, their growing techniques, etc.  After you’ve collected your gifts from the growers, you can check out the Vaporizer Lounge, where a trained staff of budtenders will help you try out your samples using a wide variety of vaporizers. You are also welcome to take your samples home to enjoy at a later time. The number of samples provided will depend on the number of people in attendance, and supplies may be limited.

Q: Beers and buds! Whoooo!

A: Sorry, no alcohol of any kind will be allowed on site.

Q: Will there be dabs, pot cookies or other cannabis edibles?

A: No, this event focuses on Flowers only. 

Q: So is this a competition for the best weed in the state?

Far from it. This is a celebration, and as such, we won’t be testing for THC levels. Instead, we want attendees to focus on the grower, the methods used, and the strain/flavor. 

Q: I’m a licensed grower, and I want to share. Can I participate?

A: Absolutely. Send an email to Josh at cannabuzz@portlandmercury.com There is no fee to become a Gifting Grower, and we’ll even cover the cost of lab testing, through our lab sponsor OG Analytical. 

Q: How do I get there?

A: The venue is located at 723 N. Tillamoook just 1 block from a Yellow Line MAX stop, and is across the street from several TriMet bus lines. Parking is extremely limited, so consider all other forms of transport. If you plan on consuming at the event please do not drive. 

Q: Is this the coolest Cannabis event ever?

A: Most likely, yes. We are focused on responsible adult usage, and helping the community usher in legalized cannabis. We will be providing information on this new law, so you can understand where you can consume, how much you can posses, and other fun facts. Whether you partake regularly or haven’t touched the stuff in years, this event will offer something for you! Don’t be afraid of your freedom!
