Per Oregon Live:

The Portland Pickles will become the first sports team in the United States to legally sell cannabis-based products at live sports events.

The baseball team announced Tuesday an exclusive partnership with Cycling Frog, which sells THC-based (derived from hemp) seltzer drinks. The team said it will begin selling the drinks at Walker Stadium on June 18.

The drink – which contains 2 MG of THC and 4MG of CBG per can – will be available in passionfruit and lemon flavors at the ballpark.

“The Portland Pickles have a responsibility in the sports industry to take leaps and set a precedent of innovative partnerships,” Ross Campbell, VP of Business Development for the Pickles, said in a statement. “As we saw in 2019, becoming the first team to ever partner with a CBD company, and quickly teams all the way up to the Major League level across sports follow suit.”

As the drinks contain 2 MG of hemp-derived THC per serving, fans must be at least 21 years of age to purchase. According to their statement, the Pickles have consulted on regulations with the OLCC and Portland Parks and Recreation, which owns the stadium.

The Portland Pickles are a collegiate summer baseball team in the West Coast League.
