Cannabis store

Dispensary[dɪsˈpɛnsəri]

Definition:

Cannabis dispensaries are essentially retail establishments that sell marijuana to the general public. Marijuana dispensaries are classified as either medical or recreational, depending on state law.

Legal dispensaries receive their marijuana supply from licensed and legal producers and suppliers. State-by-state and country-by-country, the legal frameworks and regulatory structures that regulate this process differ. However, the government must license and oversee the entire supply chain via which dispensaries obtain their cannabis to remain legal.
