Behold, 7 Visually Pleasing Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

The emerging legal marijuana industry is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. Indeed, there are even firms that specialize in the design of dispensaries and grow rooms. Erich Pearson, founder of the Sparc dispensary in San Francisco, emphasizes that the architecture should “remove the stigma around cannabis and make people feel marijuana is normal.”

We’ve compiled seven visually pleasing medical marijuana dispensaries that stand out, not for their product, but their pretty interiors.
