Despite the passage of Amendment 64, retail marijuana stores haven’t popped up yet, and no one knows how long it will take the city to hammer out regulations for recreational pot shops. So get your red card. (There is simply no other way to get weed in Boulder, as everyone knows. Marijuana was virtually nonexistent before Amendment 20 was passed, allowing medical marijuana in Colorado.) Dr. Joe Cohen at Holos Health is known for compassion and professionalism.

For medical marijuana store ambiance, you can’t beat The Dandelion. Even the name makes you think of something quaint, like making wishes while blowing on a dandelion’s whispy white top. If you were wishing you could shop for legal marijuana in a cute, converted cottage sandwiched between a bar and an Indian restaurant, your prayers have been answered. If you were hoping to see surprisingly massive jars behind the counter, they’ve got that covered, too. And the jars contain so much good medicine, apparently, that The Dandelion was robbed by a criminal armed with bear spray in January 2013. (Unfortunately, this is not a joke, despite the mention of both dandelions and bears. People needed medical treatment.) Maybe when recreational marijuana regulations are finalized, you’ll see people enjoying marijuana on the Dandelion’s cute porch. Who knows? Or maybe they’ll be toking on the patio seating at the bar or restaurant on either side.
