“What will people do now since the laundry mat is closed?” many on Washington Avenue were asking today when they heard that “Squeaky Clean Laundromat” closed yesterday – the same day that the building was sold. According to employees of the laundry mat, it is scheduled to be a dispenser of medical cannabis sometime in the future
At the other end of Washington Avenue, another medical cannabis business is in the process of developing a space, formerly occupied by an insurance company, into a dispenser. Co-founders of Evergreen Cannabis Co. (ECC) Sergio Hernandez and Andrew Pettingill rented the space months ago from their landlord.
According to those in the business, cannabis dispensers are popping up all over Portland in anticipation of when recreational cannabis will be sold locally – perhaps next summer.
