Shine Papers Has Hidden Gold in Portland

Do you have plans for February 4?

I’m asking because I can’t recall if I mentioned it last time I saw you—again, sorry about your rug—and there’s an event on that date which any cannabis consumer will probably want to take part in, an honest-to-god scavenger hunt for a gold briefcase filled with things cannabis consumers like.

Before we delve into this, please note: This is a gold colored briefcase, not a briefcase full of gold. And if the game show Gold Case has taught us anything, it’s that a briefcase full of gold is hardly something most people could carry.

So even if this were a briefcase filled with gold—which, again, it is not—that isn’t something most people could feasibly transport very far under their own power. I feel like we’ve had this discussion.

Shine, a company that makes 24K edible gold rolling papers and blunt wraps, is holding their fourth annual “Shine Day” on February 4.

The festivities involve 20 gold-colored briefcases packed full of Shine, Pure Leaf, and Blaze products, along with other sponsor partner products and lovely swag. As Shine explains in their press release: “Participants must follow clues that are dispersed via email, social media, and in-person, in order to win.”

The event is taking place is 19 US cities (New York will have two briefcases), and Portland and Seattle made the cut! The full list of cities includes Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York x 2, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC.

There are an additional four gold briefcases which will be available via a “digital scavenger hunt,” so anyone (of legal age) may enter the hunt for a “Gold Case,” regardless of where they live.

No purchase is required, but you do need to register online.
