In the outer Green Mile, in the shade of Mount Hood, sits a quiet dispensary that shares a parking lot with Grant's Philly Cheesesteaks. It's small and friendly—the same budtender who took my ID then went through the door and served my cannabis. Every Friday, if you spend $10 or more, the shop will give you a joint for $1.25 (plus tax). You can also get that deal if it's your first visit, regardless of the day. The selection isn't overwhelming, and the dispensary area is cozy, but the prices are reasonable, the place feels professional, and after you purchase, and sample, your goods, there's an amazing Philly cheesesteak waiting for you next door.
