Portland is just my speed, because the locally brewed beers are just as good as the locally grown cannabis
Other cities in the Pacific Northwest may get more attention for their music scene, but Portland is the best of them all. This city has its own vibe, and maybe there aren’t a lot of huge superstars that come from here, but the local music scene is amazing and has been for years. A lot of great bands are from Portland, including Quarterflash, Everclear, Elliot Smith, Portugal the Man, and the Kingsmen. For fifty years, we have had a killer music scene. Lately, Portland has been hosting more and more outdoor concerts, some of which are sponsored by local cannabis dispensaries. For a guy like me this is the best of both worlds, because my two passions are music and cannabis. To be able to enjoy both of them at once, without fear of the law, makes Portland my new musical Mecca. I know that I tend to go on and on about how great the cannabis is in Portland, I would be remiss in not mentioning locally brewed beer. I have always been a “beer and cannabis” man – I don’t need hard booze or hard drugs, just give me a cold beer and a hot joint. Portland is just my speed, because the locally brewed beers are just as good as the locally grown cannabis. And then there is all that amazing music! I will take Portland, Oregon over Seattle any day of the week, for sheer variety of musical talent. The legacy of grunge rock is still heavy in Portland, but the jazz scene is on the rise, and so is the blues.
