Dana Weihman (left) of Medible Edibles gets ready to hand out marijuana samples and edibles. The Analog Cafe & Theater has Free Marijuana Mondays every week with a different medical marijuana dispensary 

 

There was no elbowing to get to the front of the table last night, where Dana Weihman was handing out free marijuana flowers and edibles. In the crush of bodies best described as friendly chaos, each recipient only had "Thank you" and "You're amazing" and hugs to give to Weihman, who delivered each package with a sweet smile.

The Analog Cafe & Theater, led by co-owner and Smoochknob lead singer Donnie Rife, has been holding Free Marijuana Mondays since the drug became legal in Oregon on July 1, 2015.

Early sales of recreational marijuana start October 1, 2015, at medical marijuana dispensaries. In the meantime, people over 21 can consume marijuana, given to them or grown themselves, in private places. 

There have been a couple other instances of publicized giveaways, but The Analog's will be held each and every Monday, sponsored by a medical marijuana dispensary.

Medible Edibles, one of Weihman's marijuana businesses, specializes in baked goods, such as Krispy Marsh-Mellow Treats and Chocolate Chip Bliss Cookies. Each serving contains roughly 25 mg of THC, the psychoactive part of marijuana. The packaging for each treat also lists the CBD (cannabidiol) level, which Weihman says is the pain-relieving part of the drug. She employs a professional chef and cook in an industrial kitchen.

The first 300 people or so last night received one marijuana edible and one half gram pouch of marijuana flower. Though some chose just one or the other. There is a 9:45 p.m. smaller giveaway and an 11:30 p.m. larger giveaway. All told, 500 marijuana edibles and 328 pouches were distributed as well as one raffle drawing held for a grand prize which was half ounce of Monkey Balls strain. Only 200 raffle tickets are given out.

Rife, the venue owner, says he doesn't partake in the drug himself and has never drunk alcohol. But, after spending his adult life in the music industry and touring internationally with Smoochknob, he knows he likes the mellow vibe of people smoking pot the best. 

"It's about time they made (marijuana) legal," he says, adding that people need a forum where it's okay to discuss and share the drug.

For Rife it seems like a natural extension of the marijuana culture.

"It's a community that supports each other."

For the next few Mondays ten medical dispensaries will be setting up informational booths at The Analog every Free Marijuana Monday.

It seems Rife is filling a need. At the giveaway, a 34-year-old Portland man who wished to remain anonymous due to workplace concerns was seeking information on medical marijuana as a last ditch effort to soothe bulged disks in his lower back.

He says his doctor refused to prescribe more narcotic pills after the patient brought up the subject of medical marijuana. He had tried physical therapy and biofeedback with cortisone injections. Besides trying acupuncture next, he was at a loss to halt the physical anguish, which now leaves him bedridden and calling in sick to his job of nine years since being cut off from pharmaceuticals.

"I need another option. I'm willing to try anything as long as it's not illegal. I'll never be pain-free, but hopefully I can manage it better."

Colin Smith, who was also at The Analog last night and supportive of marijuana legalization, was bewildered.

"It's insane! The war on drugs is still going on, but Portland's in a bubble. Here, we have a predominantly white crowd giving away drugs. There are still people in East Portland hustling for this stuff."

And there were other attendees who felt no conflict at all. 

Malloy Godfrey, of Portland, was there last night with a few friends. As he clutched his cookie, he grinned from ear to ear.

"There's something taking place here akin to San Francisco in the 60s or Seattle in the 90s. It's a movement."

Medible Edibles owner Weihman seems to be fulfilling a mission. Her mother found relief from medical marijuana while suffering from brain cancer. She died at age 57.

"If she had had (medical marijuana edibles), it would have been better than having her smoke it. I want to make stuff for mainstream people who are new to the industry. There's no place offering those aging something that can help terrible chronic conditions."

time to take it up a notch.

this week our "free weed" sponsor is Sirius Extracts, but instead of flower they will be giving out dab samples to the first hundred people through the door.

and since we have a very strict NO CONSUMPTION policy at The Analog you might be wondering where you can go to smoke your sample~

my first guest will be Nickie D Dank owner and proprietor of The Other Spot, a futuristic private smoking club located in southeast Portland. She will come on to discuss the current state of legalization, as well as what it's like to run a "dab bar".

Starr Sheppard-Decker will sit down with me an discuss the concept of "unschooling", and her belief that there is no "one right way to live." which I agree with, but I'm still going to ask antagonizing questions. lol.

emcee Frank Loc is making his first appearance ever on‪#‎FCtv‬

and comic Adam Bathe is making his long awaited first appearance in our new location.

 

NEW RULES for Free Marijuana Mondays.... 
So just got off the phone with the OLCC Director, Then talked with the Oregon Health Authority. Plus a great conversation with the Oregon Lottery. We were told we are doing it right & legal but Because The Analog has lottery coming in we can no longer allow the FREE Raffle. This is a grey area. We were told it's most likely legal because its free but we don't want to chance it. All else remains the same. Gothique Blends marijuana Game Show, Fight Church TV, etc. Each week sponsors & anyone else can bring / carry the legal amount they are allowed by law & Per Oregon law can gift to others. The number one rule is NO CONSUMPTION ALLOWED ON THE PREMISES. Use in the privacy of your own home. Other than that we should be good. Always follow the laws set forth & if rules change we will let everyone know. We value of liquor License and want to keep it smile emoticon
OLCC & THE ANALOG'S RULES TO FOLLOW FOR MARIJUANA MONDAYS. 
1. Absolutely no consumption is allowed on the premises!
2. Carry only what you are allowed to by law
3. Always a Free event. No Cover charge.
4. No Raffle allowed
5. No Illegal activity on the premises!
6. 
7. 
8.
We appreciate all that have worked with us to make this legal & possible. Ya!
