14 Highly Concentrated
It’s not hard to find hash in Colorado - but how do you get good hash?
By William Breathes
28 Colorado Centers
Our updated guide to the metro area’s MM J dispensaries.
Noember 20,1 celebrated my second anniversary as the medical marijuana dispensary critic for Westword. Over the past two years, I’ve visited 88 shops (nine of which have since closed), purchased about three and a half ounces of herb and twenty or so grams of hash, munched on dozens of edibles, smoked countless shake-filled house joints, and even given a few points of blood. When I add up those totals, it’s hard to believe that it’s only been 24 months. But then, time flies when you’re having fun getting stoned.
By now, a lot of the visits have blended together into a skunk-scented blur. But other dispensaries stand out in my memory for their decor
This retrospective on two years of reviewing pot is no puff piece.

Other details that come to mind include the Rastafarian coolness of the now-closed Peace and Medicine Center, the IKEA cleanliness of Well-spring, the way that La Conte’s Clone Bar converted an old blue-collar bar into ablue-collar dispensary, and Denver’s Discreet Dispensary’s windows into a massive grow space that most people would never see otherwise.

Centers like A Cut Above, with its stinky Sour crosses; the Jack Flash of the ReLeaf Center; the California-style Kush selection at ALCC; almost everything at tiny Colorado Alternative Medicine; Bio-Diesel from Denver Relief; the hazes at Southwest Alternative Care; the Clinic’s Cough; the Mango at 14er Holistics; the continued on page 10
