Former Taco Bell Turned Into a Marijuana Dispensary!

Wonder if they have a Maui Wowie Crunchy Supreme...

I am not a stoner, and I'm not a Taco Bell fan. I do know, however, that the two go hand-in-hand like pozole and oregano.

So when I saw today in Denver a marijuana collective housed in one of those faux-adobe structures Taco Bell used to build back in the 1970s, I knew that a perfect marriage had been attained.

Denver is a lot like Orange County. They have a huge zacatecano and michoacano population, the Vietnamese community is big (in Denver's case, they JUST got the Boiling Crab trend), they have loony Republicans, they have a Wahoo's, and they have a vibrant marijuana dispensary culture (our sister paper Westword even has a cannabis critic!). We, of course, are the home of repurposed former Taco Bell locations, but I don't think any of our potpreneurs have erected such a monument of sinchronicity.

Like I said, I'm not a pot guy, but I wonder if one of our chefs can't combine the best of both worlds. Paging...eh, I'm not going to out him as a pothead haha.

I don't what does Taco Bell offer that Marijuana dispensary can't give. Taco bell is still the favorite.

You'd need a couple of bong rips to power down a burrito supreme!

Great way to extract money out of addicts. I wouldn't do it because it's immoral but most would.

Um this story didn't have point. Yeah I see a lot of cool places but.....if they did have food, infused with weed now that's a story.

Of course this story had a point—do you not comprehend simple headlines?

 yes my comprehension isn't the problem. I just didn't see pointing out a former taco bell now dispensary as newsworthy. If they sold canna-tacos or hash tamales or something then the story would be better. There's an old taco bell on 17th thats a teriyaki place... Just an opinion you know everyone has one.

I've lived in Denver, I've lived in the OC. NOT THE SAME. Not even close.

Didn't say it was the same; just that it had similarities!

Someone should open a new Taco Bell next door.
