Ah, to live in San Francisco where bongs and glass pipes get sold on Market Street and marijuana dispensaries get reviewed and rated on Yelp like any other business...

Toto, we're not in Alabama anymore.

I read some reviews. Amazing. A real glimpse into what life would be like if marijuana were legal. These people are serious about this.

This is my favorite dispensary in SF so far. The actual dispensary area is pretty basic and at first glance, seems kind of bland and unfriendly because of the bulletproof glass separating the budtenders from the customers. But, don't let looks deceive you, this place is the best source for flowers and concentrates.

First off the service is so helpful, friendly, and patient. I've been to this spot three times now and every time the people who have helped me out have been knowledgeable about the medicine and really patient about showing me things and answering questions. There is a separate hash bar in the back for concentrates and the budtender back there has been really helpful as well.

Second, the selection here is unparalleled - they have the 2nd place Cannabis Cup winner Candy Jack, which I think is deserving of the award. I'm also a big fan of their purps, having tried both the Presidential and the Cadillac (my fave). I also love the Pink Cream Soda and the Platinum Cookies.Their concentrate selection is excellent as well, I recommend the OG hash crystals, the cookies kief, the OG earwax, and the gold dust.

Finally, I love their lounge!! It's a big, open, airy loft. They keep a few windows open so I don't feel stifled in smoke. There are all kinds of smoking accessories to use, multiple TV screens, a pool table, free wi-fi, a nice selection of cannabis books & magazines, and plenty of places to sit, whether you want to relax on a sofa or sit at one of their large communal pub tables. Even on a busy day I never feel stifled here.
How long before they start using wine and food network terms?

Edit: I just was there's even a new profession. Budtender.
I agree with brewer. This is silly.

Same deal here in the land of "Rocky Mountain High." But the charade of this being "medication" is silly and embarassing. Just legalize the damn stuff already and get on with life. Anyone who wants it can already get it and using police resources to chase them is a waste. Plus it would shut off a big flow of cash to Mexican cartels and other undesirables.

Guess why it's still illegal? Did someone say "cash"? The war on drugs isn't much more than a price support mechanism. Every local pot farm and cannabis club raided is just a crop subsidy for our associates to the south.

Just for fun, take a look at just who lobbies to protect us from reefer madness:

Yes, I know. Also incents stupid crap like ripping up National Parks, State Parks, National Forest etc. to raise pot plants in isolated areas they hope won't be found.

As with everything else in this corrupt mess of a country, follow the money...

Well, we saw during Prohibition that the "cure" was worse than the disease. And as the saying goes, the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. We saw the awful unintended consequences of banning booze, but somehow with MJ it will turn out differently?

From your lips to God's ears.

Sometimes I get the feeling that the ardent supporters of keeping the stuff illegal stick to their position for reasons that were forgotten 50 years ago. The damn stuff grows wild all over Nebraska already, for Heaven's sake.
