In Oregon, Marijuana Ads Flourish On Craigslist

Anna Reed/Statesman Journal
A Craigslist advertisement hoping to trade a few ounces of marijuana for three Hatchimal toys photographed on Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016.

It started with making marijuana products at home for herself and her husband. Then, she thought, “People might buy these.”

The woman, who lives in Keizer, figured she could make money off a medical marijuana-filled, holiday-themed gift box.

The gift box had pot-infused body butter (“to rub on achy muscles”), massage oil (“perfect for the bedroom”), a 4-by-5 inch Rice Krispie edible and other treats. She makes it all herself and is proud of the body butter. She said it helped her mom’s foot arthritis.

The box costs $100. “I just thought it’d be a fun thing for Christmas,” she said.
