Oregon is no stranger to high-quality cannabis—consider some of the legendary strains bred there, like DJ Short’s Blueberry and Archive’s Do-Si-Dos. But which strains are most commonly sought after? To answer that, we took a look at Leafly search trends to find out which varieties people are looking for in Oregon. You’ll find both legends and some new heavy-hitters.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Seeking to halt federal agents from arresting people in courthouses for immigration violations, a panel of judges in Oregon has asked the state's Supreme Court chief justice to impose a rule stating that no one should be subjected to arrest without a warrant.
Several judges on the Uniform Trial Court Rules Committee said Friday the matter is of urgent concern because immigrants, even legal residents, are afraid to go to court because of fear they will be detained by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents.
The agents have been detaining people who appear for court proceedings and are suspected of being in the United States illegally. In one incident, captured in a videotape shown by lawyers to the committee, ICE agents pepper-sprayed family members of a person they were trying to arrest. That incident happened in a courthouse in Astoria, Oregon.
The committee voted in favor of recommending to Oregon Chief Justice Martha Walters that she establish a rule that anyone inside a courthouse or in the immediate area be safe from arrest by immigration agents if they don't have a judicial warrant.
Some of the judges on the committee, though, worried that ...
Samuel Adams’ new Halloween beer is so scary strong – it’s illegal in 15 states, including Oregon.
That’s because the beer, called “Utopias,” has a frighteningly high alcohol content of 28 percent per bottle.
To put that into perspective, a regular Samuel Adams lager has an alcohol content of just 5 percent.
The price tag on a bottle of “Utopias” might also chill your spine. Suggested retail is $210.
According to Forbes, this is Samuel Adams’ 11th batch of the Utopias line, which they’ve been offering in limited releases since 2002.
“Utopias” is available to purchase in Washington.
It is illegal in the following 15 states:

PORTLAND, Oregon - The Cascade Blues Association (CBA) has announced its nominations for the 2019 Muddy Awards. Among those nominated is the Lake Theater & Cafe in the category of “Best Blues Venues” for their Music Mondays series.
Music Mondays is the work of producer, recording artist, and musician Dean Mueller, and his partner, Julie Amici. The Lake Oswego residents began the series in 2014 booking top local talent. Music Mondays now attracts national touring acts that pass through the Northwest.
Early on they realized this was a special place and time, as they were filling a much needed musical experience that lacked in Lake Oswego. The Music Monday series has become a favorite among locals, selling out nearly all of the shows, and drawing in music lovers from beyond the Lake Oswego area.
Along with attracting the high level of performers, Mueller said he is most proud of “earning the support and recognition of the community.”
The other two nominations in the category of “Best Blues Venue” are Blue Diamond and Catfish Lou’s.
Dean Mueller and Julie Amici, have also been nominated for CBA’s “George Page” award, “Back What You Believe In.” The award is given t ...
Thanks to low mortgage rates, it's an excellent time to buy or sell a home across the U.S. But what about in Oregon?
Is the state's housing market too pricey for buyers? Not-so-great if you've got a home you want to sell? Or just right — for everybody?
Home values provide some answers. They indicate that the market in Oregon is heating up, according to Zillow, though you might find vast differences from one city or one corner of the state to the next.
Current home values in Oregon
Home values have been rising throughout Oregon and are up 3.14% from a year ago.
Statewide, the median value for a single-family home — meaning half are worth more, half are worth less — is currently $347,800, Zillow says.
Could you afford that? Let's say you want to buy that mid-priced home using a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at this week's average interest rate, which is a low 3.57%, says mortgage company Freddie Mac.
With the 30-year mortgage rate at 3.57% and the median home price for Oregon at $347,800, a representative monthly mortgage payment would be $1,575.
How the Oregon housing market stacks up:
Property values in Oregon are high by historical standards and are highe ...
