Portland pot shop offering Thanksgiving specials

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Thanksgiving weekend is the retail industry's biggest time of year, so it only make sense that Oregon's marijuana businesses would want a piece of the proverbial pie.

Shango Cannabis, which has three stores in the Portland area, says it plans to offer special deals for medicinal and recreational marijuana customers.

Shango's director of sales says its specials will start the day before Thanksgiving.

"We don't want to have to be one of those businesses that opens our stores to the public on Thanksgiving," Morgan McKee said. "We want our employees to be able to enjoy time with their families, but with Thanksgiving being a food-centered holiday, we figured we would get our customers a great special the day before to stock up on some holiday treats."

McKee said people with medical marijuana cards have a lot more options for sale items, since state law doesn't currently allow recreational users to buy edible products, but the first 25 people through the door Wednesday will receive a special treat.
