Raymond Port District is the cannabis capital of Washington

Raymond and South Bend Washington are two small mill towns on the Washington coast that were little known to the nearby cities of Seattle and Portland. Quiet old towns that sit side by side with but a border line parting them that once flourished in the timber hay days of the early 1900s and now are but a shadow of what they once were. There were said to have been nearly 70 mills between them. Now all but one are gone with only the skeletons of docks and drying kilns and old equipment remain. Presently, a couple of grocery stores, a large general store and several small shops serve what population still calls them home. The local industries still include logging and fishing and crabbing and oysters but now comes a new industry. No, not an existing industry that is interested in moving there but a brand new out of the box industry. Since Washington voted to legalize the use of cannabis for those aged 21 and over these two little towns have received a gift. A gift in that a brand new industry has been created and guess where the first growers and processors in the state decided to hang their shingle. Yes, Raymond and South Bend.
