Oregon: State NORML Affiliate Opens First 'Cannabis Café'
Quote:Oregon: State NORML Affiliate Opens First 'Cannabis Café'

Portland, OR:
Oregon NORML, a state affiliate of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), on Friday opened the state's first café catering to state-authorized medical marijuana patients. Over 250 people attended the café's grand opening, which received international media coverage from the Associated Press, Reuters News Wire, and the New York Times.

Patrons of the café, who must be in good standing with the state's medical marijuana program as well as a member of Oregon NORML, may consume cannabis on the premises.

Unlike conventional marijuana dispensaries that operate in states like California and Colorado, medical cannabis is not sold on the premises, nor is the primary function of the café to dispense marijuana. "This is not a medical marijuana dispensary with a café; this is a café for medical marijuana patients," said Madeline Martinez, Oregon NORML Executive Director and a member of NORML's Board of Directors.

Presently, over 24,000 Oregonians are authorized by the state Department of Health to use cannabis medicinally.

For more information, please contact Allen St. Pierre, NORML Executive Director, at (202) 483-5500, or Madeline Martinez, Oregon NORML Executive Director, at (503) 239-6110.
