Oregon Coast Cannabis in Manzanita will begin selling recreational marijuana today Oct. 1, 2015 at 11 a.m.
It is the only cannabis business in Manzanita and was grandfathered in prior to a city council decision to hold a public election on the sale of marijuana. The fate of the new business may be left up to the voters in Nov. 2016 if the City of Manzanita puts the sale of marijuana on the ballot during a city election. No other marijuana sales licenses can be obtained in Manzanita until after the vote making Oregon Coast Cannabis the only legal retail marijuana store in the city. OCC is continuing to build its inventory and product lines, and has a quantity of local flower available for the beginning of recreational sales. To celebrate and commemorate the start of recreational sales on Thursday Oct. 1st, the Tsunami Drummers will perform at Oregon Coast Cannabis from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information, call 503-368-4200, or go to leafly.com for specials.
