OAKLAND, Calif. (Frank Malicoat/KTVU) – It’s “Green-Day” at Oakland’s Harbor-side. Lots of Green coming in and lots of Green going out! “This is like Disneyland, but way better,” said Florida’s Andrew Rojas.
Harborside is one of the nation’s largest marijuana medical dispensaries, and today their doors just got even bigger! Opening to a completely new kind of customer. “It’s historic … I don’t know I just want to be part of history,” said Joe Sides of Montana. “First time? Absolutely! What are your impressions? Orderly, clean and seems like people are behaving. Everything looks great!” Said 1st time Pot-Shopper Laurie Driscoll.
No medical card required today. As long as you are 21, you are free to buy, and many like first timer Laurie Driscoll decided to give it a try, but she admit there is a learning curve.
“I think there’s a whole story around different types. What it does and feels like. I don’t know anything about it so I’d like to find out. It’s a brave new world!”
