I love being able to call Portland my home, and it’s not just because of the music scene, or the weather, or the legal weed, it’s because of the people.
I have lived here for just about a decade at this point, and I am quite sure I will live here for the rest of my days.
There are a lot of small communities and neighborhoods inside the Portland city limits, and each of them has their own unique flavor. I bought a house on the outskirts of the South Side of Portland, where the properties are a little more spread out, giving everyone more privacy. In a city like Portland Oregon, people value their privacy as much as their freedom. I grow a lot of cannabis plants in the greenhouses in my yard, which is perfectly legal in Portland. Still, I prefer to do my cultivation in private, away from the prying eyes of others. In a city like Portland I don’t need to worry about nosy neighbors, because as far as I can tell they don’t exist here. For all I know my neighbors also grow cannabis plants, but I would never know because I don’t nose in their business, either. In a city like Portland no one really needs to grow their own marijuana, because the dispensaries are numerous. Personally I only grow cannabis to save money, because although it is easy to find in Portland it is still a lot of money to spend! By growing my own cannabis, I save myself a few hundred dollars a year.
