1341-Weed Mania – Coos Bay, OR

Today I made my final stop today in Coos Bay, OR. Staying at the Red Lion Hotel in Eureka, I was treated well, so I booked a room online. Checking in at the front counter I was greeted with “Good afternoon, are you here for the weed fair? “Weed fair, what’s a weed fair?” I asked. “It’s behind us here in the conference room.” I told him that I was from another place where they don’t have weed fairs. But realizing I was in Oregon, I figured it out and told him I would check it out. I don’t bake and ride. I want to be on my game all the time on the bike, so I don’t mess with any of this on the road. I checked in, and soon realized that everyone in and out of the hotel was stoned. I conned my way into the fair and was astonished to find the size of this industry going on in the open. Oregon was one of the first to decriminalize pot and a multi-million dollar industry blossomed. It was not just a bunch of weed heads, but normal people at this fair. I was amazed. Check out the photos.
