Live music and marijuana just go hand-in-hand for me, weed enhances the power of music, and at the same time music makes the effects of cannabis so much more impactful, however in other words, I won’t go to a concert if I can’t smoke weed there.
I know this is decreasingly hard to find, because of the strict federal laws about smoking indoors, then mostly I frequent outdoor shows, or festivals with several afternoons worth of live outdoor music, then this is 1 of the many reasons I appreciate Portland, because the weed is amazing, and the live music is even better.
It would be a lot easier for myself and others if I liked vape products, which are also widely available in Portland. I am “old school” you might say, so I appreciate smoking cannabis buds and flowers because it feels more natural, but recently I discovered a new cannabis dispensary on the outskirts of Portland which has a small bandshell on the property! Although it rains a lot in Portland, any evening that has clear skies you can find a local musician playing on the bandshell at this cannabis dispensary. This place has become my go-to spot both for buying cannabis and catching some killer local Portland talent. The blend of weed and music is the ultimate glad place for me, so I doubt I will ever transport away from Portland. If there is a neighborhood that has better music or better cannabis than Portland, I would appreciate to hear about it. Hit myself and others up in the comments if you have a Portland musician you want to shout out!
