Organized by Seattle-based DOPE Magazine – that stands for Defending Our Plant Everywhere – the DOPE Cup is a competition, consumption and industry event, as well as an attempt to bring together tokers of all kinds.

“It’s an experience,” said Oregon DOPE Magazine Director Ryan Johnstone. “This event is meant to combine the consumer with the producer, and the research and education behind it, allowing them to partake in the plant together.”

The event is billed as the longest-running cannabis competition in the Pacific Northwest, first started in Seattle four years ago. The Portland event will be the first to expand outside Washington.
