Staypuff Organics opens in Rainier, Oregon

Staypuff Organics opened in Rainier, Oregon.  The medical marijuana dispensary was opened by the Neveau family and is located at 113 1st St. E. Before the opening of Staypuff Organics, patients had to travel to Salem or Aloha to get medicine.

For a $20 an annual fee, Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cardholders can purchase various marijuana strains and food products infused with cannabinoids, the psychoactive chemical compounds in marijuana. According to Oregon law, the dispensary cannot profit from selling the drug.

Rainier Mayor Jerry Cole worries that the marijuana dispensary will operate with lax regulation, even though there has yet to be any negative issues with dispensaries operating in other small cities, such as the one that opened in Ontario. In fact when he heard about the plans to open the dispensary, he looked for ways to ban it, but found none. The Portland Tribune quoted him saying “I’m not too crazy about it opening up, I hope people realize that our hands are tied.”

The Neveau family want to make a safe, comfortable place for their members and they don’t want to be targeted by thieves so no drugs will be kept after hours in the shop and no smoking or ingesting marijuana will be allowed on the premises. In addition there will be multiple security cameras throughout the dispensary. The largest crime deterrent of course is the Rainier police station that sits right across Highway 30 from the store.

Currently there are over 47,000 patients in the Oregon state program.
