SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Marijuana dispensaries in San Francisco have begun selling recreational pot for the first time.
Six dispensaries confirmed Saturday that they’re selling recreational marijuana. They all received their state licenses to sell on Friday.
One of them, Apothecarium, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local politicians and even offered a 20 percent discount for people who brought their mothers.
Eliot Dobris, head of community outreach at Apothecarium, says the business wanted to show that dispensaries are “respectable places that you can be proud to bring your mom to.”
Recreational marijuana became legal in California on Monday, but some municipalities hadn’t authorized shops in time for them to sell right away.
