Up the street from a police station and right behind the Department of Homeland Security, AMA is not ashamed of its business. The dispensary took a pretty nondescript old brick building literally a stone's throw from the law and painted a massive green graffiti-­art rendition of its name on the side of it. The shop has been opened up to create one big space that still manages to feel somewhat cozy. AMA has a well­-worn feel to it; there's no decoration to speak of, save for a few couches and a flat­ screen with a vintage Atari machine below it, begging to be played. The bud bar has pot-­product posters hanging on the walls, practically an entire corner devoted to edibles, and a bookcase full of vintage bobblehead dolls. The shop isn't dirty or dingy, just thrown together with the flair of a straight, blue-­collar single dude. AMA carries a wide range of concentrates to match its herb selection, including kief, strain-­specific bubble hash and BHO.
