    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

    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

    #$%$ is nearly law in Florida. It will appear on the ballot there in November, and polls suggest voters are in a mood to pass it.

    With new laws come new money, and with medical pot more than most. Dozens of businesses have been popping up in Florida in recent months with the hopes of joining the green rush early.

    According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, more than 60 businesses have incorporated in the Sunshine State since last summer using names that suggest their creators intend to go into the weed business. The vast majority of those were filed since February.buds and money

    “It’s growing exponentially,” said Ken Kavenaugh, a video production entrepreneur who created Marijuana Farmacy LLC with his wife, Cynthia. “Every Tom, #$%$, and Harry would love to get into it, but it’s certainly not nearly as simple as some may think.”

    The companies that have incorporated appear to be planning to provide everything from cultivation and equipment supply to medical treatment and retail sales. Lawyers, security professionals, financial consultants, and more all seem to be gearing up for the coming tide of new green – cash and weed.

    Most of the action seems to be driven by money. Many of the businesses were founded by people with little or no background in marijuana or healthcare.

    “Logic would dictate that there should be sufficient demand,” said Craig Frank, president of the newly formed Florida Cannabis Industry Association Corp. “So naturally people looking for opportunities may be looking to start a company.”

    The best chance for MMJ in Florida will be on the ballot in November. That campaign, led by Orlando personal injury lawyer John Morgan, would adopt a traditional #$%$ program with broad access to patients suffering from severe conditions.

    Dispensaries raided and closedSixty percent of the state’s voters must approve a ballot initiative before it can become law. Recent polls show more than 70 percent of Florida voters support the MMJ initiative. With that kind of support, it’s likely to pass.

    A competing proposal in the state legislature would legalize only a very limited form of MMJ known as CBD oil. This extract is helpful only to a very few patients but is favored by conservatives because it doesn’t contain THC and therefore can’t get patients high.

    The second approach wouldn’t create much of a market, but the possibilities under the first approach are substantial, said Taylor West, deputy director of the National Cannabis Industry Association.

    “Our rough, back-of-the-envelope estimates project that a medical [marijuana] industry in Florida regulated in a similar way to Colorado could do about $780 million in sales a year,” West said. “That’s based on what we’ve seen in other states and adjusted for Florida’s population. That would likely make it the second-largest legal market in the country, after California
