It boggles my mind that in other places you can’t do something like sit in your car and smoke marijuana without fear of going to jail.
I call myself a cinephile, which is a fancy word for “movie lover.” I live in perhaps the greatest city in the world for someone like me. Let me describe a typical movie-going experience for me. First I scan the local listings, because Portland Oregon is home to over a dozen different second run movie theaters, as well as three cineplexes and two drive-in theaters. There are dozens of movies to choose from on any given night! I selected a theater with recliner seating, one that offers a menu and a full bar, and watch a classic movie from the 70s. If I have picked the right place, then I can also use my vape pen to enjoy some cannabis, because that’s how great a city Portland is! My recent favorite has been the drive in theater, because I stay in my car the whole time so I can smoke cannabis or engage in whatever activities I want to! God bless Portland and the whole state of Oregon for being such a chill, laid back place to live. It boggles my mind that in other places you can’t do something like sit in your car and smoke marijuana without fear of going to jail. Oregon has the same indoor smoking bans as most other places, so you can’t smoke pot inside most businesses in Portland. But that isn’t something you go to jail for, you would just get kicked out. The drive-in has been great for allowing me to fully indulge in cannabis, as well as fully immerse myself in the movie.
