Something I've noticed about the marijuana dispensaries in Colorado Springs is that they clearly seem to attract a skid-row clientele. Which probably explains why most of them are located in close proximity to other pillars of the community like pawn shops, tattoo parlors, payday loan sharks and liquor stores. Birds of a feather, and all that. Welcome to the gates of Loserville.

I think that is more a result of cheap rent. I have seen shops in plenty of 'nice' areas.

(be limited to places where they are bound to) attract a skid-row clientele.
If the natural state agricultural product were legal (as it should be by default)...
then it could be sold at the farmers market: nice piles of bud sold out of attractive wicker baskets
right between the heirloom tomato's and the asparagus.

What a person notices is primarily dictated by their beliefs. Your statement appears to say that YOU believe that those who use MJ from a marijuana dispencary are losers. Believe whatever you like, but note it as such, and don't confuse belief with reality. The reality probably goes more like this. SOME people who use MJ are losers.

I know one person who uses medical marijuana. Certainly not a "skid row" type...and as usual, Bob has committed serious hyperbole here. But on the other hand, the way that my friend talks about it...well, it's hard for me to take it as a serious medical treatment.
