Best Of 2013: Medical Marijuana Dispensary: West
Military folks who have spent their entire careers being prescribed high doses of Motrin can truly appreciate how specific and thoughtful TriChome's employees are. Don't like the type of marijuana you picked up last? Bring it back, and folks here will switch it out for something else. They are, after all, professional consultants, not budtenders. TriChome says it's the second-oldest dispensary in El Paso County and one of the first 20 to open statewide, and it serves a clientele with an average age of 40-something. Many of those folks choose Cheese, which calms and relaxes anxiety without the grogginess. Others go with Carnival, especially if they suffer from AIDS, glaucoma or serious pain. — Joshua Michael Torres
