  • Cities in Oregon that have imposed a moratorium on #$%$ dispensaries

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — One of the first customers through the door at the Kaya Shack on SE 17th and Hawthorne was Justin Orzechowski, who said he’s finally found a place to buy #$%$ he isn’t ashamed of going into .

    “This is my first time being here, but I’ve seen it’s a very professional atmosphere, very business like setting and you won’t be able to find a more professional place I’ve seen so far,” he told KOIN 6 News.

    He wasn’t the only one who made their first trip into Kaya Shack. It was their opening day.

    Kaya Shack is seeking to revolutionize the face of #$%$ by providing a clean, upscale retail space for people to buy #$%$. Their first Portland store opened Thursday, and they hope to grow into a nationwide chain in the near future.

    They’re trying to take #$%$ upscale, with big name bud sales and service to keep customers happy.

    Craig Frank, the company’s CEO, told KOIN 6 News he wants to develop Kaya Shack into a nationwide brand that evokes many of the same feelings among its customers as other popular national chains.

    “The same feeling you get when you walk into a Starbucks for coffee, the same sense of relaxation, confidence in what you’re about to receive, confidence in the people who are serving you, that’s exactly what we want,” Frank said.

    Unlike other dispensaries, Kaya Shack wants to be visible. It is the first publicly traded company dealing in #$%$ — Alternative Fuels Americas, Inc. — and Frank said they have the financial resources to build clean stores and make its dream of nationwide expansion come true.

    “If we do this right and demonstrate that it can be done right, more of Wall Street might start to pay attention,” he said.

    Neighbors around its store on Hawthorne who spoke with KOIN 6 News said they don’t object to the new business.

    It is the first step in a growing new industry. Stores in Portland, Eugene, and Ashland are planned first, but with 22 states now allowing some form of marijuana use, the Oregon experience may be just the

    Kaya Shack looks to be Starbucks of medical pot

    •Organizers lack 'wherewithal' for pot initiative
    •Pot farm nuisance laws could affect other crops
    •5 things to know as legal pot sales roll out

    PORTLAND -- The sign on Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard reads, “Kaya Shack Coming Soon,” and it had neighbor Dan crates wondering, “Something to do with kayaks?”

    No kayaks in the space opening Thursday but there is plenty of pot.

    “This is a #$%$ dispensary and kaya is a hipster term from the ‘50s which means marijuana,” explained CEO Craig Frank.

    Frank has a vision for a chain of Kaya Shacks, all with the same design, décor and menu.

    “We want to be the Starbucks of #$%$,” he said. Store manager Lori Brown will help patients with a prescription card select from 18 varieties, all grown in Oregon.

    “I know which strains work good in place of painkillers," she said. "I myself got off seven medications and it has changed my life.”

    For the business to succeed, the owners say they need 70 to 100 patients a day.

    “These are people with arthritis, cancer, insomnia and many other ailments,” explained Brown.

    It’s the first publicly traded company to own a #$%$ dispensary,

    “The response has been tremendous. We’ve had 2,000 new investors since January,” commented consultant Dave Jones.

    The company has plans to open two more Kaya Shacks in Portland and then two to three additional locations in other Oregon cities. Then they’ll look to expand nationwide.

    “It’s an industry whose time has come,” Jones concluded

  • New Approach Oregon, a group looking to legalize limited amounts of herb for adults 21 and up, will submit 145,000 signatures to the Oregon Secretary of State today, 57,000 more than required.

    If the signatures are approved, it will mean that the Control, Regulate and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act will be on the November ballot. Adults 21 and up would be able to purchase cannabis at retail stores as well as grow their own at home so long as there aren't more than four pot plants growing at a time and no more than eight ounces of herb on site. Homegrowers would also be able to keep up to sixteen ounces of infused products like edibles, oils and butter.

    Regulation would be left up to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

    The Food and Drug Administration could change the federal controlled substance scheduling of marijuana, possibly opening up the plant for wider medical usage. Interestingly, the review was initiated by a Drug Enforcement Agency request, according to the Huffington Post, which broke the story.

    "FDA conducts for Health and Human Services a scientific and medical analysis of the drug under consideration, which is currently ongoing," FDA spokesman Jeff Ventura told HuffPo. "HHS then recommends to DEA that the drug be placed in a given schedule. DEA considers HHS' analysis, conducts its own assessment, and makes a final scheduling proposal in the form of a proposed rule."

    The review will consider things like how easily the plant can be abused, the scientific evidence for medical efficacy, the general scientific knowledge of a drug, the level of abuse, public health risks and whether or not the drug "is an immediate precursor of a substance already controlled under this subchapter." Basically, they look to see if the benefits of a drug outweigh the downsides - and with cannabis, that should be a slam-dunk.

    If cannabis is re-scheduled, it could open up the doors for more scientific studies of cannabis by taking away the red tape surrounding marijuana research in this country currently. Or, the FDA could continue to ignore the medical benefits of cannabis like they've been doing for decades. In fact, the FDA has refused to change the status of cannabis twice in the last 14 years; once in 2001 and again in 2006.
    But public opinion in this country is rapidly shifting and more and more states are passing #$%$ laws - the total is up to 23 now with New York recently approving #$%$ regulations. Even the FDA recognizes that, updating it's guidelines for marijuana use last Friday with some relatively optimistic-sounding language.

    "The FDA is aware that there is considerable interest in its use to attempt to treat a number of medical conditions, including, for example, glaucoma, AIDS wasting syndrome, neuropathic pain, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and certain seizure disorders."

    Why or how this individual decided it is furniture or equipment we are waiting to have delivered is beyond me. How did he arrive at this conclusion. Maybe we are waiting for a package from our home office in FL.....did anyone think of that?

    The jumping to conclusions - mostly false conclusions - does not serve anyone's interests. Let us do what we are supposed to do and we'll let you know through legal and accepted channels once we have done it.

    I had an idea, if your friend goes to a bar nearby, why not have him come by and say hello. As long as we have no product in the store we are happy to have him come in and see the store. Just have him stop by. Anytime.
