PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Bob Marley fans can celebrate as two Oregon dispensaries are now carrying the official Marley Natural cannabis brand.

The Nectar dispensaries in Portland and Eugene are both fully stocked with "Marley Natural" products, including four types of marijuana and oil and other hemp infused items.

The products were launched earlier this year and were previously only sold in Los Angeles.

Employees at the Portland store said that a portion of every purchase goes to the Rise Up Expungement Program to help people convicted of non-violent marijuana related offenses.

“The idea is to help people who have had any previous criminal record regarding marijuana or cannabis consumption or possession, anything like that, to help get that off their record now that it's legal, and people are making money off it in a legal way,” Michael Cathcart of Nectar Dispensary explained.

Organizers are planning a “Rise Up Expungement Day” event this Saturday.
