My son n law my daughter and myself visit this store on a regular basis. The staff are fantastic. I have been smoking . on and off since I was a teen. I’m in my 60’s now and smoke or use cannabis for a different reason now. The staff are very very attentive and knowledgeable. I always get freebies of some sort whether it be rolling papers or actually samples of cannabis. I highly recommend this store. Very welcoming and comfortable staff. read more
