The OCA writes in its latest newsletter.

We were all heartbroken by the tragic shooting that took the life of Michael Arthur during a robbery Monday, December 14th while he was working at Cured Green in North Portland

A fund has been established in honor of Michael, we strongly encourage the cannabis community to step-up and donate in his honor. Michael was a selfless individual who loved to help people and serve his community. Michael’s death has left behind a 5-year old son and a large community of extended family and friends who are deeply grieving his loss. 

If you have not done so, please make a gift today. Donations can be made through the GoFundMe, or you can contact us to make a cash or check donation. This is a moment for the cannabis community to come together and support the family of one of our own. The legacy fund has a goal of $100K – together we can hit this goal.

Security Recommendations

We are helping to collect robbery information for the Portland DA’s office. It is likely that a small group is responsible for the majority of the Portland area dispensary robberies. The more theft data we can collect from dispensaries, the more likely a pattern will emerge. For more information on how to submit your robbery evidence, contact us here.
