Cannabis Dispensary Disclaimer
Dispensaries are held prisoner to the many changing laws and government requirements. Remember these tips before you leave the house:
- Always remember to bring your government-issued ID — as well as your verifiable doctor’s recommendation if you’re a medical patient. If you forget your doctor’s rec, don’t be surprised when you’re forced to pay the higher recreational tax fees on your weed. Find a local weed clinic in LA if you want to be in the lower tax bracket.
- Prepare to Pay Taxes on your purchases! Ranging anywhere from 10% up to 35%. This is not by the dispensaries’ choice, but as a result of the law changes for recreational marijuana. Don’t take it out on your local dispensary… or their bud tenders!
- If you’re looking for something high in demand or extremely specific — call ahead! Save yourself the time and frustration! There is nothing worse than stepping out only to return home empty-handed!
One more thing…
These dispensaries are not in any particular order. They have all been hand-selected by our expert to provide the best information. Now, without any further ado — here’s the first installment of
