I remember my first dispensary: Karing Kind becomes Boulder's first recreational weed shop

VicesFebruary 18, 2014

Nearly two months after recreational marijuana became legal in Colorado, Boulder finally has a beautiful, bouncing baby legal weed dispensary to call its own. Aww, we remember our first legal weed.

The dispensary, Karing Kind, began slinging government-authorized devil's grass at about 10 a.m. today, marking the first recreational pot sale in Boulder's whole life.

David Marx, of Longmont, was the first customer to bust Karing Kind's legal cherry. "That was great," he said after making his purchase as the other customers in line applauded. "They've definitely got a large selection of product."

Brothers Anthony and Rob Taylor traveled from Philadelphia to check out Colorado, but also heard about Karing Kind's opening and wanted to be among the first in line. "Colorado is nice, but we do like weed, I'm not going to lie," Anthony Taylor said. Fair enough.

And with that, Karing Kind's opening finally marks an end to the pilgrimages to Denver for legal weed. You've now got options right in your own back yard, just waiting to get stuffed into the monster bong that's sitting under your Bob Marley poster in your yoga dungeon. Happy legal weed, Boulder,
