“Australians beware!!! Being an Aussie traveling around Oregon and Washington this was the 6th dispensary I visited. When I produced my ID they refused to except it even though I never had any issues at any other place I've been. They weren't even nice about it. ”

As stated above, we can NOT accept an Australian Drivers License as an acceptable form of identification. If you had brought in your Passport along with your ID, we would have happily helped you out! We must be compliant with our laws so that we can stay open for business as long as possible! Sorry if the staff was not thorough about explaining the rules and regulations that we must follow!
