Potpourri

Evergreen Health Center looks like a typical medical marijuana dispensary nestled in a strip mall. To the left, it’s flanked by a tanning salon and a pizza place; to the right, a sushi bar, hair salon, credit union, and Safeway. Inside, back issues of High Times line the coffee table. Strains with names like God, Couch Lock, and Obama Kush (“makes you feel changed”) fill the glass display case. There are pot-infused sodas, bonbons, gummy bears, cheddar cheese crackers, and Rice Krispies treats. There’s even a sample bottle of cannabis body lotion, which makes my hands feel extra smooth and tingly.
