Oregon loses Hightimes Cannabis Cup in 2015 to Northern Cali!
It is a sad day in Oregon when the OLCC (Oregon Liquor Control Commission) will prevent a huge event like Hightimes Cannabis Cup from being in a venue that is large enough for 5000+ people. Regardless if liquor is served or not this did not matter to the OLCC when they threatened that any venue that allowed Hightimes to throw their event would be in danger of losing their liquor license. According to Hightimes this one Cannabis Cup could have brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars and possibly millions of dollars in revenue for Oregon.
Amanda Younger - HIGH TIMES Event Director, stated “Bringing the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup to Oregon has proven to be a Herculean task— in fact, it’s been the most difficult of all of our Cannabis Cups to get off the ground.
It seems funny that the citizens of a State that has made the choice to legalize marijuana
still have to pay the penalty for old school politics.
What do YOU think?
We have noticed while reading the news lately that there is
still a lot Canna Bigotry in the United States.
Like for instance, Cyd Maurer, 25, a University of Oregon graduate who was the morning weekend anchor at Eugene's ABC affiliate "KEZI." She was fired after getting into a minor accident while on the job. She was truthful with her supervisor about the use of legal recreational marijuana but of course after her drug test for work came back positive for THC she was fired.
Well guess what?
She's fighting back and now is a activist for the legal marijuana movement.
What are the weed laws going to be in the future?
This is a very touchy situation now that Oregon has made marijuana legal.
How does this play out with you and your job?
Canna Saver Oregon would love to hear what your thoughts are on this topic.
Express yourself - You never know there may be a coupon in it for ya. LOL
Have a Beautiful Oregon Day!
