Live From the Cannabis Café

A marijuana restaurant opens in Oregon.

|

On November 13, a clot of journalists stands in a hailstorm outside a Portland, Oregon, business called Rumpspankers Beyond Broth. We're awaiting a press conference rechristening the business the Cannabis Café, the first restaurant where patients licensed by the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) can publicly use marijuana. The event is a half-hour late in starting.

Perhaps there's cleaning to do. Rumpspankers, a soup restaurant by day, was until recently an adult entertainment venue by night, hosting a bondage club and a monthly event called "Pants Off Dance Off."

Maybe those already inside—the café's owners, representatives from the Oregon chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), a guy carrying a raft of French pastries—don't hear the banging on the door.

Maybe, judging from the skunk smell that rolls out once the door is opened, everyone inside is too euphoric to realize what time it is.

"Welcome to freedom!" says Madeline Martinez, all good cheer as she finally presents the café, a cavernous room of dinged-up furniture and paper lanterns. As the executive director of Oregon NORML, Martinez previously hosted bimonthly socials for marijuana patients in the ballroom above Rumpspankers, but a seven-day-a-week place to congregate and medicate? That is her dream come true.

"We need a place like this because we are ostracized," says Martinez, a former California Corrections Department employee who says she uses marijuana to relieve the pain of degenerative disk and joint disease. "Our medicine is not accepted because it smells.…We want the opportunity to sit down and say, have you tried this kind [of pot]? It really works well for this symptom."

Relief isn't cheap. Customers must have an OMMP card ($100 application fee), be members of Oregon NORML ($35 and up), and buy a membership at the café itself ($240 a year, plus $5 at the door). This entitles them to buy coffee and goodies and to sample donated marijuana provided by NORML, which will also deal with any legal consequences, though the specter of arrest faded when U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced in October that federal prosecutors in the 13 states with medical marijuana programs will no longer go after pot dispensaries that comply with state law.

"The momentum has come to Oregon to the point where we can open this [café] and it's an accepted part of the community," says attorney John C. Lucy IV. "I think we would have gone forward whether the decision had come out of the Obama administration or not."

While the decision protects Oregon's 36,000 patients and caregivers who hold OMMP licenses and ostensibly get their pot at dispensaries, Oregon NORML thinks the state is ready for even more reform. It is gathering signatures to put the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act and the Oregon Cannabis Tolerance Act on the November 2010 ballot. Both will legalize the sale, possession, and private cultivation of marijuana for personal use, while the tax act aims to put money in state coffers by putting a levy on the sale of cannabis hemp products.

On the first day of business at the Cannabis Café, there are cookies for the volunteers, three-dozen of whom arrive in preparation for the 4:20 p.m. opening ("420" being slang for pot smoking). To comply with Oregon's ban on smoking in workplaces, there isn't supposed to be any smoking in the Cannabis Café, a rule belied by the appearance of several bongs and pipes. Officially, "bud-tenders" will dispense marijuana via vaporizers, which heat the plant matter to release THC and other cannabinoids instead of burning it. Martinez demonstrates how to use a Volcano vaporizer, packing the chamber with a strain called Blueberry she has grown herself.

Behind the bar, Rumpspankers owner Eric Solomon, wearing a grubby tent-sized T-shirt, tells his staff and the NORML volunteers, who all must have OMMP cards, to expect "at least a thousand people." While NORML runs the pot part of Cannabis Café, Solomon will profit from food and entertainment. The crowd breaks into applause when he announces he gave up his liquor license the day before, at the behest of inspectors concerned about having a place pushing both booze and pot. 

Solomon, whose broth restaurant did not survive at a previous Portland location, is hoping to make more on pot than he did on soup and sex. "I've already booked cannabis weddings and cannabis karaoke," he says. "Everything mainstream society does, without the cannabis." He does not worry that his clientele will be limited to medical marijuana patients. "There are close to a million people in Oregon with qualifying diseases," says Solomon, a medical marijuana patient for what he says is the "pain, 24/7" of degenerative spinal disease. "You can have the slightest onset of glaucoma, and not even know it, and you qualify."

He hopes the Cannabis Café is a better fit for the neighborhood, where residents weren't crazy about the after-hours orgies and drunks peeing on their lawns. "People who medicate with marijuana don't drink and crash their cars, or think of robbing a bank to feed a habit," says Solomon, and then considers. "Well, they might think about it, but then they'd say, 'I'm going to make a sandwich now and think about it tomorrow.'?" 

At precisely 4:20, the journalists are herded out and customers let in, five at a time, while perhaps 100 people wait in line on an outdoor stairwell. They wait a while. A business run exclusively by those who smoke pot for those who smoke pot has predictable lag times and confusions. "Just give me $60, and we'll worry about it later," says a NORML rep, unable to figure out what to charge for entry.

Solomon has described the medical marijuana patients who previously attended Rumpspankers/NORML socials as "people in wheelchairs" and people with "Stage 5 cancer," adding that "the average age is 55-plus." But those who show up on Cannabis Café's inaugural day seem relatively hale. A 20-year-old says he uses pot "because I tore a muscle in my hamstring." A 48-year-old woman with fibromyalgia is here as much for the social aspect as for pain relief. "It's really nice to know you're not alone," she says, smiling at a 39-year-old man with a pacemaker, who smiles back. 

The only person not smiling is the one who appears the sickest. Outside, the hail has changed to rain, and at a table at the end of the stairwell sits a man, visibly ravaged by illness, thin and out of breath and leaning on a cane. He is looking at the line of people waiting to get in, nearly all of them young men, joking and laughing. Asked whether he wants some help up the stairs, he shakes his head, too weak to answer.

  1. New at Reason: Nancy Rommelmann on the Grand Opening of the Cannabis Caf?

    WHERE?!? WHERE?!?

    [O]utside […] Portland, Oregon[.]

    DARN IT!!!

    1. Haha, my sentiment exactly 🙂 Long time since I lived near Portland but perhaps it’s time to move back…

  2. “Welcome to freedom!” says Madeline Martinez, all good cheer as she finally presents the caf?, a cavernous room of dinged-up furniture and paper lanterns.

    You can have too much freedom – the Statists told me so.

  3. What happens to you if you light up a Marlboro?

    1. I love that this place is in Northeast Portland. I have tons of family in that neighborhood- it’s a neat part of town.

      If anyone’s going to make a pilgrimage, the Cannabis Cafe not far from The Kennedy School, which is a really cool hotel/bar in a converted school. Good beer, fun scene (the bar has different rooms like Detention Room, etc).

      1. Damn threaded comments.

    2. They could fine you for smoking tobacco in a public place.

      [Welcome to Orwell country]

    3. This is hyper-progressive Portland you’re talking about. You go figure it out.

      1. They held out longer than Seattle, at least. I went out with my cousins a few years ago, and remember being surprised to see actual ashtrays in a bar.

        1. Yep, smoking in Portland bars has only been illegal for just over a year now (January 1st, 2009) because of a new state law. Portland itself never had a smoking ban, like some other cities in Oregon did, before the statewide ban went into effect.

  4. America the bizarre.
    “Local man arrested for smoking tobacco in marijuana bar”

  5. Great news! Not sure what that was all about at the end of the article though. Didn’t really seem to fit.

    1. I don’t think it’s unfair to point out that medical marijuana is occasionally exploited by folks who don’t really need medicine, sometimes at the expense of those who do. In fact, I think that’s one of the strongest reasons to move from a medical model to full legalization — we shouldn’t have to use the genuine sickness of others as an excuse to do something we enjoy. It’s not fair to anyone involved.

      That said, I’m a healthy 26 year old, and I’d be all up in that piece if I lived out there.

      1. I agree, this situation is a farce. No where do you find people with headaches meeting in a bar to pop Tylenols.

      2. I used to live in Oregon and I can say without hesitation that probably 90% of the medical marijuana card holders have very minor medical ailments. The medical marijuana law allows an MD (or DO) to sign a card for practically any reason under the sun. The marijuana advocates paraded out people with MS, AIDs, cancer, etc. as excuses as to why the law is needed but the typical card holder is a person who just wants to smoke some bud and not have to worry about getting arrested for it.

        There are probably a few ailments where pot provides some relief but its mostly just used for recreational purposes. If it was truly “medicinal” it would prescribed with specific dosage instructions rather than just authorized for self administration by the user. You don’t see a bottle of oxycontin with instructions saying “take as many as you want whenever you want”.

        Personally I don’t care if an adult wants to get stoned but the same people who want the liberty to smoke pot don’t want to give employers the liberty to choose not to hire them when they fail a drug test.

        1. What right does an employer/anybody have to ask you to give up your bodily fluids for anything? None at all.

          If an employer wishes to fire someone who is obviously stoned/drunk/etc., fine, no problem.

          1. Its called “condition of employment”. Sort of like showing up to your job and actually doing work before you are paid. A person doesn’t have to submit to an employer’s drug test if they don’t want to. The employer also doesn’t have to hire them or continue to employ them if they choose not to submit. Thats the great thing about liberty – it works both ways.

            1. Employers’ pee tests are the upshot of the statist ban on marijuana and statist propaganda against it. Employers should evaluate only a person’s work. Peeing in a cup to get a job is the beginning of submission to other kinds of authority. You’re right, though. Why work for a moron?

        2. It is just a little thing called the 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. If there is no probable cause to search your urine, nor a court order signed by a judge, then the test is illegal. If the corporation does not like this law then they should close up business in the U.S. and set up in someplace without a 4th Amendment like Venezuela.

          http://happoundo.com

          1. Umm the 4th Amendment pertains to what the federal government can and cannot do, a private company does not need to get a warrant to test your urine.

            It’s amazing how many people on this site don’t have a firm grasp of private property rights. It’s very simple “my house, my rules.”

          2. You have to way not just the rights of the employees but the rights of the public. If someone caused harm to another person while working because they were high that puts the employer at risk not to mention the general public.

        3. This country has become drug testing obsessed. I that pot smoker does his job adequetly then the employer should leave it alone.
          There is no proof that pot smokers screw up at work.

      3. I don’t think it’s unfair to point out that medical marijuana generally all pain medicine (Vicodin, Norco, Percocet, Percodan, Darvocet,MS contin, Oxycontin, roxicodone, Ultracet, Xanax, etc.)is occasionally exploited by folks who don’t really need medicine, sometimes at the expense of those who do.

        It’s all about the buzz.

    2. I meant more in the literal sense…. the last paragraph feels like it was written for a different story. I am not debate anything in it, just that it felt like a different cadence to the writing, that is all…

  6. That’s my fear – people who don’t really have any particular need for “medical” marijuana will be the visible public face of these operations, and that’s only going to give ammunition to the opponents of marijuana (medical or otherwise). “Look! These junkies are just malingering so they can get a ‘legal’ fix!” And then there will be a backlash, and the entire legalization movement will be hurt.

    1. If that were the case, then oxycodone, hydrocodone, and just about all opiate-based analgesics would have been banned decades ago.

      Relax.

    2. If that were the case, then oxycodone, hydrocodone, and just about all opiate-based analgesics would have been banned decades ago.

    3. If that were the case, then all opiate-based analgesics (oxycodone, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, etc.) would have been banned long ago.

    4. Or the other way round: with several bars like this, people will get used to the idea and reality.

      One of the reasons why War on Drugs still holds is the social stigma attached to overt consumption, as well as various myths growing around the thing.

      Once “normal” middle class people start openly smoking pot and the sky does not fall, the rest of the voters will be easier to accept legalization.

  7. Why didn’t they move the really sick people to the front of the line?

  8. Why didn’t they move the really sick people to the front of the line?

    Good damn question, but don’t overlook that some types of illness don’t show.

    Even at that, and even if there wasn’t a formal process for moving the way sick up, why didn’t individual inline man up, turn to the poor bastard behind them and offer to trade spots with them.

    I raise my glass to chivalry. He will be missed.

  9. I ‘m watching the marijuana stupidity (and the stonertarians’ breathless anticipation as they can’t wait to get in bed with ‘progressives’) with great amusement.

    Nobody has thought this shit thru, and I for one *do* actually believe pot should be handled about similarly to alcohol.

    The question above about lighting up a cigarette is perfectly illustrative.

    Somebody better develop some sort of portable breathalyzer and functional impairment/intoxication scale that is practical and reliable before these idiots are turned loose on the streets.

    Somebody better figure out a sane policy for employers that lets them discipline/terminate employees coming to work stoned — without letting the employee hide behind some ‘addiction’ BS and the employer required to pay out the ass for the sham of ‘rehab’.

    Someone better figure out what to do once the trial lawyers smell serious $$ in the weed marketplace — it’s typical libtard illogic to be horrified about tobacco while being unconcerned about the ‘psychologically addicted’ toking on the equivalent of no-filter Camels.

    Once there’s big $$ in no-longer-underground marijuana — which makes it accessible — expect the shoe to quickly be on the other foot, the fot going up the ass of pot smokers and sellers.

    Oh, and don’t forget the tax man.

    1. Somebody already has figured out a portable analyzer that can detect marijuana intoxication. And most employers could probably figure out if someone not doing their job properly is stoned or not easy enough.

      So chill out, brother man, and be happy!

      1. Oh, and fuck the taxman. See? I didn’t forget him!

      2. “And most employers could probably figure out if someone not doing their job properly is stoned or not easy enough.”

        Put down the bong and slowly back away, bro.

        The point is making sure the libtards don’t make it impossible for employers to deal with them, as they meddle with employers wrt other issues (requiring the company health plan to cover the joke of rehab, ‘mental illness’ etc)

        1. “Libtards” should make it impossible to fire employees for any other reason than the quality of their work. Libertarians certainly should. You’re starting to sound like a conservatard.

    2. I realize this reply is late, and no one will read it but I was stoned.

      I am guessing the stonertarian philosophy has brought more people toward libertarianism than managertarianism (the wish to be able to discriminate in hiring again and finally get rid of those lazy darkies). So you might want to have some respect for stonertarians.

      Maybe if you conservatives stopped pretending marijuana was addictive, the liberals would stop pretending it’s a disease.

      And let the stoners out on the streets? They are all around you, you just don’t know it, because they are normal people, just like alcohol drinkers.

      Oh and the taxman is on board with the medical marijuana movement in California at least.

      1. Perhaps if you weren’t stoned you would realize that ‘out on the streets’ — said in the context of a breathalyzer — was clearly a reference to DUI/DWI, and not people being pot smokers in general.

        And if you think my reference to the taxman meant I thought he would be against normalization (rather than seeing it like a vampire sees a bare neck)… your dullness serves as more anecdotal evidence for the at least somewhat deleterious effects of chronic THC consumption

        1. Unfortunately taxation, and more importantly the revenue it brings, will more than likely be the mechanism that finally gets this thing done. The instant gratification of correcting the budget imbalance will far outweigh the risks and taboos. The love/hate relationship with tobacco and government would be very similar.

          As far as showing up to work stoned, I would imagine it would be grounds for termination just as if you were to show up to work drunk. If nothing else, I personally am fine with employers creating their own procedures.

          Lawyers, well don’t know what to tell you there…. they seem hell bent on sucking the life out of life for a profit. You raise a valid question, but I guess I would not want to determine legality on potential (or assured) actions of lawyers. Trial lawyers are a problem onto themselves though aren’t they?

    3. Employers are welcome to fire employees who aren’t performing. If the pot is a problem (as all the propaganda you clearly swallow tell us), you won’t need to know about the pot to fire the employee. They just won’t be doing their job.

      No one has ever gotten into a car accident because of week unmixed with alcohol. Ever. But I guess if you want even more armed goons running around with breath tests just to make a point about “libertards,” you’re welcome to it . . . on your own property.

      1. “No one has ever gotten into a car accident because of week unmixed with alcohol”

        1. prove it

  10. “420” being slang for pot smoking

    Umm, no. Is “7” slang for “good luck”? Its the same ‘ole human numerology crap.

    Customers must have an OMMP card ($100 application fee), be members of Oregon NORML ($35 and up), and buy a membership at the caf? itself ($240 a year, plus $5 at the door).

    Yeah, we’re gonna wish it was illegal again by the time this is all over.

    1. Wait until the medical marijuana shop employees unionize and become members of AFSCME or the SEIU. It will be easier and cheaper to buy it on the black market…

      1. You might not be thinking it through far enough; legalization is guaranteed to cause price to skyrocket long before unions become a factor. Who is a pot dealer now? It’s that seventeen year old Dominos driver, that guy in your office who has a hookup…it’s small business with a capital small, because it has to be agile and inconspicuous. Make it legal, and that business goes away – quick, tell me how you would get around the four or five dollars tax on a pack of smokes right now. It’s nearly impossible. I’m not speaking against legalization – it’s an academic question for me as I neither use nor sell, but I do think there are some really interesting dynamics to this scenario, and it will be fascinating to see how it plays out. And make no mistake — it will be legalized, fully. All it takes is one state, and the whole thing will come down.

  11. “Welcome to freedom!” says Madeline Martinez,

    Not really.

  12. It is already way cheaper to buy it on the black market. The only draw for a twenty somethings with dubious health problems is strain selection.

    More than likely legalization whether complete or for medical reasons won’t have much of an impact on consumption. Its extremely easy to get already, even in uptight midwest areas. Complete legalization would make it far more difficult to get for people under 18 or 21.

    Most people can easily avoid the high prices of clubs by simply getting a card and purchasing their pot where they aways got it. Possession’s legal..

    This will be an incremental process, but it can only end one way, complete legalization. There won’t be a downside. A huge amount of marijuana is already consumed causing very few problems relative to alcohol or tobacco. The only things that will change are civil liberties, the price we pay for locking up non-violent flower possessors, better enforcement of violent crime, and an huge boost in tax revenue.

  13. The older man in line who is visibly sick is the guy I can relate to in this story. He is symbolic of how the debates surrounding “medical marijuana” all but forget entirely the people such laws are supposedly crafted to protect. What other medicine is taxed as cannabis is? What other medicines are priced to compete with the illicit black market? What other medicines must one procure a “fee” to be prescribed in the form of a “card?” As much as they want to say this is for “patients,” it is obvious they have no qualms about making many dollars in the process.

  14. I’d like to visit the cafe and see if I like going there but I don’t really have the money to pay NORML and the cafe owner almost $300. Seems that there should be some way a person with a medical marijuana card could be a patron without the expense, at least on a trial basis. Disabled people generally don’t have much left over.

  15. I’m sorry I’m high….what is the subject?

  16. We really need to get the ball rolling in Florida with this kind of thing. I dont think its ever going to happen though. Id be interested to see how Oregon’s tax issue with this works out.

  17. Just the best coupling to have a place to puff and to satify the munchies

  18. This place is going to make millions. All they have to do is serve munchies and stay open till past 2am!

  19. The vaporizer is sick, definitely worth trackign one down and testing out a bag or two. it’s a totally different buzz, but a clean one. Delivers a nice buzzy head high, but if you’re the couchlock fan, might not be the best bet. A lto of the couchlock comes form other compounds in the combustion process that you don’t get with vaporization.

  20. Ahhhh… the smell of freedom. So sticky-icky!

  21. Ahhh… the smell of freedom. So sticky-icky!

  22. Ahhh… the smell of freedom. So sticky-icky!

  23. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won’t get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books.

  24. Wait until the medical marijuana shop employees unionize and become members of AFSCME or the SEIU. It will be easier and cheaper to buy it on the black market…

  25. A marijuana restaurant opens in Oregon? I may not be an introvert person and I know how to make fun. But I do know where the boundaries of the word “fun” are. Where is the moral left of those people who would go out and used marijuana as a scapegoat of the good life God gave us? The State of Oregon should be worried and horrified about what will happen after 5 years of giving Cannabis Caf? a permit to open to the public. I am worried about the teenagers and children who would be exposed to that Caf? and be one of those lost sprit who could not make their life to the fullest. The State of Oregon should closed the Caf? and be banned in the whole state of USA. We cannot afford to lose our principles in giving someone a right to be happy in a wrong way. Close the caf? or it will be too late!

  26. This is a great illustration about how one side of the coin influences the other.

    The hard line conservatives pretend marijuana is the scourge of the earth. The Liberals in turn pretend it is all about medicine.

    The folks who go out in public to pretend it is medicine, for the large part have little better to do with their lives than crusade for weed.

    This causes conservatives to see this group of mostly losers and be convinced that marijuana is all the more evil.

    Thus the cycle continues.

  28. The issue of marijuana regulation within America is one that needs to be resolved sooner rather than later. There’s a range of contrasting legal, ethical, medical and social discourses at play here, so no doubt it is a very complicated issue.

  29. Sounds like a paradise to me! Only problem is I would end up spending all of my money once the marijuana kicked in. Looks like they found the perfect way to get business!

  30. Very interesting concept. I like the idea of this. Oregon totally rocks!

  31. Very cool concept. Gooooo Oregon!

  33. Ugg boots (sometimes called uggs or ug boots) have been considered a fashion trend since the early 2000s.The combination of its soft shank and sheepskin interior means that ugg boots are designed for casual, short-term use, and not for situations which require sturdy, protective footwear, as the design emphasis is on style and comfort rather than protecting the feet. While in the boot, the sockless foot is in full contact with the sheepskin lining, thereby maximizing the insulative properties of the boot.

  38. Cool concept! Shame it`s only in OR … 🙁

  39. Man – I wish they would set up some thing like this in the UK. Over here we are way behind the US with most things, I suffer from back problems all day due to being sat at a desk selling insurance (boring I know) but a cafe in London like this would help with my pain – Good luck to the forward thinking U.S.

  40. Good luck to them, I wish the UK would do something like this

  41. I run a local taxi firm in the North West and have found that if you recommend your entire workforce to use this company for their taxi insurance then you get a massive discount. We saved about 90%. In these hard times you have to get the word out.

  42. All the glowing expectations that legalization of pot will bring the tax revenues “rolling” in are nothing short of a “pipe dream.” The huge majority of pot users are recreational. They and their suppliers will have little interest in seeing the relatively low prices of their THC borne entertainment go “up in smoke.” With a well established underground network in place, don’t expect to see the healing of our economy come from new taxes on weed.

  51. That was a very interesting read, thanks for taking the time to post it.

  52. we shouldn’t need to use the genuine sickness of others as an excuse to do some thing we take pleasure in. It’s not fair to anyone involved.

  53. Thank you for your article. It’s always fun to come across a ticket expanded. So I’m going to share this source.

  54. thanks for this article, only just found it – was a great read too, certainly brightened up my morning anyway 🙂

  55. I just tweeted this to my followers. Very interesting. I thought cannibus cafes wwould only stay within california…but in oregon? wow! Thanks for the share!

  56. Why is it marijuana is legal in Oregon??I love this country for its legal marijuana…

  57. Great article! marijuana is a medicine of some deceases but if you over used it, it also addictive and give negative effect to your body.

  58. Great Topic! Some country’s banned using marijuana because of the over usage of this drug..

    1. this happened because of some other reasons I guess :/

  59. I think I will love this Cannabis Caf? for their free marijuana. This caf? really rocks!

  60. There’s only one word for this post. . a.erh!

  100. over promising and underdelivering. in addition they leave customers mid-way and there are many posts

  101. That was a really good job of writing. I am from a place where you would never see a restaurant that you could smoke weed in, so your descriptive writing really put me there and let me think of what it would be like. I don’t smoke weed anymore though, but am not against it! Cheers!
