We've got answers.

  • What do you mean by “First on the West Coast”?
    Margie’s was the first legal pot shop on the West Coast. She opened the day, hour, and minute recreational marijuana became legal in Washington State. Over the years, her store in Bingen has become a must-visit mecca for those who love cannabis culture and want to buy their weed at the place where it all started. Margie was a true cannabis pioneer, and because of her long experience as a certified pharmacist, she was among the very first to receive a license from the state. Not bad for a single grandma in her sixties.
  • Why are all Margie’s Budtenders so Awesome?
    We love our employees and invest in them as people. All of Margie’s budtenders are State Certified Medical Marijuana Consultants. That means loads of rather expensive training, but they are worth it… and so are you. Because we invest in our people and take care of them, they tend to stick around. Some have been with us for more than 5 years. This all means that when you come to Margie’s, you get the most experienced and friendly budtenders in the Gorge.
  • What makes Margie’s edibles so much better?
    The laws regarding THC content in edibles are different between Washington and Oregon. Long story short, in Oregon, the maximum THC content is 5mg per serving and 50mg per package. In Washington the maximums are TWICE as much (10mg/serving, 100mg/package). You do the math. Plus, we pride ourselves on having a gigantic selection.
  • What’s so special about Margie’s cannabis flower selection?

  • I’m fairly new to Marijuana. Where do I start?
    Come on down to Margie’s and tell our budtenders what kind of marijuana experience you would like to have.

Sativas are best for day use and are typically up-lifting, energizing, and produce a nice head high. Indicas are best for evening use and typically relaxing, with a pleasant body high. Many folks enjoy indicas before a sound sleep. Hybrids are a versatile combination and can be used at any time. People report feeling creative and enjoy a blended head-and-body high.
  • What hours is Margie’s open?
    During the summer, we open at 8am and close at Midnight except on Tuesday. That’s earlier and later than the other guys.

  • What’s the deal with that amazing mural on your building?
    The design comes from a tattoo found on the mummy of a 2,500-year-old medicine woman known as the Siberian Ice Princess. Her incredibly well-preserved body was discovered entombed in the high steppes of Russia in 1993. Archaeologists discovered a healing kit buried with the medicine woman that prominently included a jar of equally well-preserved marijuana. Margie was also a benevolent and well-trained medicine woman. She worked in four states and on Indian reservations as a fully certified and credentialed pharmacist. When she got the chance, Margie jumped ship from the pharmo-industrial complex and opened her own marijuana shop. The Siberian Ice Princess is Margie’s spirit sister.
