There are several remarkable differences between American dispensaries and Dutch Coffee Shops, not all legal states have many options or offer amenable spaces for tourists to enjoy weed, but if you’re looking for a cannabis-friendly environment in the states then you’re looking for the places where the recreational use of weed is approved like Colorado and California.
American stores are regulated by the local government and tend to have more restrictions. There is more than one kind of dispensary while some follow the coffee shop concept modeled from the Netherlands, others simply sell strains for personal consumption at home.
The first dispensary opened in 1992 The San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club by Proposition 215 co-authors, it was publicly opened during the initial success of the legalization of cannabis. The local’s name eventually changed to “Cannabis Cultivators Club” and before recreational laws were approved they focused on selling mainly to AIDS and cancer patients.
What Exactly is a Dispensary?
Medical dispensaries are traditional in the U.S, providing consumers with weed as prescribed by their doctor. Cannabis sales to the public are made under restrictions from the federal laws.
Many locals have opened within the concept of a social space for cannabis consumers to try all sorts of strains from Pineapple Express to a wide range of homegrown new hybrids with the basic aim to fulfill the medicinal and recreational demand.
