With marijuana legalization proceeding apace in Oregon, — Sticky Shops has added the state's recreational pot shops to its databases. Visitors to www.StickyShops.com will now find clear, easy-to-use interactive maps of retail marijuana locations in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, along with pointers as to the best deals in each of the states. With legal marijuana sales being one of the country's fastest growing new industries, sticky shops provides a valuable service to those interested in what the substance has to offer and plans to add Alaska to the site's system as that state's first legal pot shops open.
"We're happy to report that we've added Oregon to the list of states our legal marijuana store directory now covers," Sticky Shops representative Dan Kennedy said, "The same great, accessible functionality that has made the site such a hit with people in Colorado and Washington is now available to those in the latest state to proceed with full legalization. We encourage store operators to come by and ensure that their shops are listed and the details correct, as well."
Although marijuana remains at the federal level illegal to grow or partake of, four states have now passed their own laws legalizing the recreational use of the substance. Colorado and Washington were the first of these, with voters in a pair of late-2012 referendums building on a growing nationwide acceptance of medical marijuana to pass the first state laws okaying the cultivation, sale, and use of marijuana for other purposes.
Since then, Oregon and Alaska have joined the group, with work underway in both states to lay down the long-term regulations that will govern retail sales of marijuana to the public at large. The federal government has also shown signs of softening its decades-old condemnation of the drug, as by backing off from what had become widely unpopular raids against medical marijuana dispensaries in California and otherwise signaling that it would cede states more leeway regarding their own stances.
Since launching earlier this year, Sticky Shops has quickly become a popular online resource for those interested in recreational marijuana. With clear, simple, regularly updated maps and listings that display the recreational pot shops Colorado and Washington residents have available to them, Sticky Shops has turned into a go-to destination for those looking for the best place to buy legal marijuana and accessories.
By now adding to its databases the recreational weed shops Oregon has to offer, Sticky Shops will do the same for marijuana fans in that state, as well. Following on the initial opening up of recreational retail sales on Oct. 1, the Oregon database already contains hundreds of stores spread across nine pages of listings and conveniently divided according to general location. As with the rest of the site's store details, registered users can sign in to rate individual shops, contributing to a community-driven reckoning as to what each has to offer. The Oregon recreational pot shop update is now live, and Sticky Shops representatives expect to add Alaska to the site's database soon.
