If you have never had the chance to go weed shopping in Los Angeles, let me tell you – you’re in for a treat! Aside from the splendor of Amsterdam, I daresay that LA is the best possible city for finding the best and most exotic strains of marijuana.
Part of the reason for that is due to the high level of competition.
There are almost 200 legal cannabis dispensaries in the city, and all of them want to outdo the others. This is a buyer’s market, and if you look in the right places you can find anything you want! That said, here are a few expert tips for cannabis shopping in Los Angeles. First of all, bring cash with you. Cannabis dispensaries in Los Angeles do not accept credit cards or checks, although some of them have started taking debit cards. Federal law prohibits the sale of cannabis, even though it is perfectly legal in Los Angeles, so the stores have to be cash-only. My second tip is to only visit cannabis dispensaries that are licensed and certified with the city of Los Angeles and the state of California. With all the rules and regulations we have about cannabis, the licensed stores are as clean and safe as pharmacies. Los Angeles does have a high number of unlicensed cannabis dispensaries, and to be honest most of them are just as clean and neat as a pharmacy, too. Third, do not attempt to smoke your legally purchased cannabis outside, or while driving your car in Los Angeles. You will get arrested for that.
