A new business concept in the marijuana industry is about to get underway in Colorado. Soon, people will be able to gas up then light up, all in one handy location.
Denver based Native Roots, will begin opening Gas & Grass stations next month in Colorado Springs—combining the traditional gas station with a pot dispensary, creating the ultimate in convenience stores.
“It's really just kind of pairing the convenience in one specific stop,” company spokesperson Tia Mattson said. She explained the dispensary will have its own separate entrance and follow all the same rules and restrictions that apply in Colorado. The gas station will be open to the public and sell normal gas station products.
Mattson envisions a process similar to grocery stores and warehouse retailers who have their own gas stations.
“It's just one more thing for us to pair up the shopping and convenience of gas with a stop for somebody who is a patient, to knock off both errands at one time,” Mattson told KOAA-TV.
This trend, yet another indication of how legal pot is becoming part of the broader Colorado economy, seems to be sitting well with the locals.
“You can buy cigarettes, you can buy beer, so why not?” one woman buying gas at a Denver station, told KOAA-TV.
