MWCB 31. Smashing Stigmas // The Potlandia Experience

This episode features Omar, the developer of Potlandia, a cannabis tour bus in Portland, Oregon. Omar’s vision to allow people to experience cannabis in a relaxed setting while learning about the industry capitalized on a simple fact most people didn’t notice: Portland tourists had nowhere to smoke legally. Smoking in public is illegal and most hotels don’t allow it.

Omar also touches on how he wants to push for a more healing-oriented approach to cannabis and the cannabis industry, as well as move away from a lot of the stigmas that create negative connotations toward the plant.
