guy-fox-cannabis-flag-burnside-burnCannabis possession and cultivation for adults over the age of 21 became legal in Oregon this past June 1, 2015. Portland NORML hosted a midnight event on the Burnside bridge which was later dubbed #BurnsideBurn.

Burnside Burn drew thousands of people who covered the entire length of the bridge and spilled over onto both banks of the river. Nearly everyone lit up after the clock struck midnight. People openly shared cannabis flower, seeds and plants with one another.
