In 1973 Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis. In 1998, it became the second state to legalize medicinal marijuana. Then in 2014, it became the fourth state to legalize recreational weed. With its tendency to be at the forefront of the movement to end prohibition, it should come as no surprise that the state is thick with dispensaries. So what are the best dispensaries in Oregon?
