To celebrate its second year in business, ReLeaf MM, an east Portland medical marijuana dispensary is offering new and current patients a buy one get one promotion during the month of September. When patients buy one gram, they’ll get a second of equal or lesser value free.
Owner Dave Slack said he loves his Mill Park neighborhood location at 1034 S.E. 122nd Avenue. “We support and love our community. We have gotten to know many neighbors who are now patients,” he said. “122nd Avenue is a great location for not only the neighborhood patients, but also very convenient for people to find us from all over Portland; just like our [business] cards say.”
