Who knew Colorado Springs could be known as the cradle of cannabis innovation? The folks at Native Roots, a large dispensary chain operation in Colorado is looking to bring their ‘Gas and Grass’ concept to life next month at two different locations in the city.
The idea is really quite simple, but brilliant nonetheless – combine a legal cannabis dispensary and a gas station.
Gas and Grass, get it?
“It’s really just kind of pairing the convenience in one specific stop,”
said company spokesperson Tia Mattson.
Mattson explained each of the businesses will have their own entrances, with the same state rules and restrictions applying to the dispensary and the gas station will be open to the general public. When asked about the type of products the gas station would be carrying, Mattson stated, “I believe we’ll have lottery tickets, beverages, cigarettes and similar things that you would pick up in a convenience store.”
“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.”
