A marijuana dispensary in Colorado isn’t a big deal, but the town of Colorado Springs is now host to the world’s first combination of a pot shop and gas station. Appropriately named ‘Gas and Grass,’ the fuel station ties together two huge markets in the state that was one of the first to legalize cannabis.

Denver born Native Roots opened the two locations in Colorado Springs to break barriers in the cannabis industry. Their two locations that will serve fuel for your car and mind are at West Uintah and 17th Street, and at Academy and Galley.

“It’s really just kind of pairing the convenience in one specific stop,” said company spokesperson Tia Mattson to Seattle NBC Affiliate KOOA

By law, the dispensary and gas station must have two separate entrances and abide by the same restrictions that apply to other medical marijuana stores in Colorado. For those that really just need to fill their cars up, the gas station is open to the public much like any other.

“I believe we’ll have lottery tickets, beverages, cigarettes and similar things that you would pick up in a convenience store,” Mattson added.
In addition, the stores offer marijuana themed shirts, hats, and little souvenirs to celebrate the lucrative crop that’s beginning to be combined with other business models.
“We definitely are leaders and we’re visionaries,” Mattson said. “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.”
The way Native Roots’ eleven dispensaries and retail stores operate is similar to how most retail chain run. There are uniformed layouts, familiar merchandise, and structured pricing to provide a consistent experience.
If you’re planning on being a regular customer, Native Roots plans to offer loyalty discounts to return patients and those that buy cannabis and gasoline from their new stores.
