Portland might get a nearby spot to smoke up legally. This thanks to the tiny town of White Salmon, WA just over the Oregon border. Makes sense and that will make dollars but of course that means stick-in-the-muds will still complain…

WHITE SALMON, Wash. — A small town in southwest Washington wants to get into the pot business in an attempt to bolster its bottom line.

pot“If they’re going to be there, at least let’s use the money to the public advantage,” Mayor David Poucher said.

Only a few thousand people live in White Salmon. It’s a small community living in the shadow of Mount Hood on the Oregon border. Like most small towns, White Salmon is looking for ways to put money in the bank.
