What’s Better Than Watching the Eclipse? Watching the Eclipse…on Weed

Top Tier Gear USA


We are only a few days away from the much-hyped total solar eclipse that will occur on August 21.

People within the “path of totality” – a 70-mile wide swath of land that runs from Oregon to South Carolina – will be able to view the rare celestial event.

Tens of millions of people are expected to travel into the path of totality to view the event at its fullest. If you’re lucky enough to live in the path, you’ll get to see the eclipse in its totality from your own backyard.

About one million people are expected to travel to Oregon to view the eclipse – and it appears that many of them want to add a bonus to the experience: cannabis.

Local news stations are reporting that some Oregon marijuana dispensaries have seen a spike in sales ahead of the solar eclipse, reports Business Insider:

“Tourism already to Oregon, plus an eclipse, is doubling up. And that means customers are doubling in our doors,” Mike Drevecky, an employee at the Little Amsterdam Wellness Center in Portland, Oregon, told The News Review. “I mean, we’re swamped this morning alone.”

A dispensary in the city of John Day is reportedly turning away recreational customers, in order to have enough product in stock for medical marijuana patients.

In Huntington, pot shop Hotbox Farms is expecting 10,000 customers or more through the solar eclipse event, according to WVTV Fox 13. The small railway town has a population of about 400. Steven Meland, co-owner of Hotbox Farms (one of two dispensaries in town), said the company’s 21 employees will work around the clock in order to meet customer demand.

Marijuana has been legal for recreational use in Oregon since 2015. People over the age of 21 with a valid ID can buy and carry up to an ounce of weed. It’s also legal to give away weed as a gift, so long as it is used in private. Driving under the influence of marijuana is still illegal in the state.

Some dispensaries are offering special eclipse products. Oregon’s Finest, a pot shop in Milwaukie, is selling a variety of marijuana called Moon Puppies. High 5 Tours, a Portland-based marijuana-tourism company, is offering a “Stoner Eclipse Adventure 2017” package that includes transportation from Portland to eastern Oregon, two nights of camping, snacks, and protective glasses.

  • Drug users have mental problems, check yourself with a psychiatrist.

      You have a mental problem, check yourself with the bottom of a lake – there’s no cure for your fuckwittery.

        A triggered doper. I thought marijuana makes people so dreamy and perfect and peaceful. LMAO!

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          Gotta be using it to get the effects. . .

          Not triggered – that’s for you idiots.

          Thanks for playing, lackwit – no Rice-a-Roni for you.

          • Fingal Carson

            Completely incomprehensive and unintelligent nonsense. Typical of you idiots.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Only incomprehensible to the ineducable.

        red diaper doper baby goading people to suicide or wish death upon them. nice. real hippie. drugs seem more important to you than other’s lives?

          Stupid people shouldn’t breathe – it wastes air that thinking beings could use and, hopefully, prevents another generation of air-wasters from being spawned.

      Keep on going, you might hit the record for the greatest number of stoopid things said in one day.

      The ((control grid))) has done its worst to pathologize every aspect of NORMAL life. Of course, the (((control grid))) also “normalizes” perversion and the Culture of Death.

      Cybernates, your opinion fits perfectly into the shackles of the control grid.

      • I don’t NEED to poison my mind, if that makes me abnormal then so be it.
        All Drug Addicts have a psychological problem: clinical depression, bi-polar, anger managerment, multiple personality disorder.

          MJ is not mandatory anywhere. Why not adopt a “pro-choice”position on MJ? Nobody will force anything on you.

          • Because under a make all drugs legal world, you will have every driver use drugs, even bus & truck drivers, airline pilots, etc… Because more crimes will be committed by people on drugs, what is your solution to that ? Now that it is legal, I can rob & kill anyone “cauz I needz my drugz”. You’re a Child, grow the fuck up.

          • ProudAmerican

            What is your evidence that, “you will have every driver use drugs…[blah, blah, blah]”?

            “‘Now that it is legal, I can rob & kill anyone ‘cauz I needz my drugs'” Really??? Violence increased when alcohol was prohibited and decreased when prohibition ended. What then is your evidence that robbery and killing increase with an end to marijuana prohibition?

            “You’re a Child, grow the fuck up.”—I’ll translate that. You don’t have any evidence, just an opinion, and we know that “opinions are like… um… noses; everyone has one.”

          • Drug Addictions are like Mental Disorders, all Drug Addicts have a Mental Disorder.
            And no, you have no solution to the problem, so STFU.
            Here is the solution if you’re going to make all narcotics legal – Up the severity of any crime committed on narcotics 2x what it is now and up the punishment to match. Annul any charges for killing a narcotics addict on the highways & roadways.
            I am not for Prison Planet or Storm Trooper Police, Execute more Felonies, creative punishment for misdemeanors that pays the victims. Minor felonies to be held for a short time in a work program where their problem is resolved in group therapy. Re-instate mental hospitals and those unable to heal in a given time will be sent there for the rest of their lives. We had a good working system all along, we just failed to use it and keep it.

            What is the research that supports your plan?

            Your “common sense” is neither common nor sensible.

          • So which one is yours, bi-polar, anger management, clinical depression, schizophrenia, paranoia ?

          • ProudAmerican

            We know which (((tribe))) weaponized psychiatry against their political and religious opponents. Thanks for remind ing us.

          Your mind is already poisoned – as the malarkey you post proves out.

          Kick back and smoke a joint and let some of the poison out. You’ll feel better, I promise.

    What better than to get inebriated and crave junk food while watching an eclipse.

    Potheads and stoners are the most worthless human beings before drunks and opiate addicts.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      And yet, you’re even more worthless. Go figure.

    • Matrixixixix

      The main difference between people who use pot and people who don’t use pot is that people who use pot DON’T CARE if you don’t use pot.
      Vive la difference.
