In his latest medical marijuana dispensary review (of Boulder MMC), William Breathes expressed reservations about the kind of massage services offered by many centers by way of proving they're doing more for patients than simply supplying them with MMJ. His observation received an "Amen" from one reader.

High Country Caregiver writes:

Yea the whole massage at a dispensary is weird. It's like the massage in the mall or in a truck stop, just not the right place or the right time. What patients really wanted and of course will never have with our horrible rules is a place to socialize and smoke. It would have been really nice to go to a dispensary with a lounge, meet others, puff and relax. Marijuana is a social drug and works better with others, taking the social aspect out and demanding that dispensaries offer more than just marijuana like massage is just silly. What ever not like I'd ever be caught dead in a dispensary being video taped buying pot.
