California may have been the first state to decriminalize marijuana, but Colorado is undoubtedly the state that has placed pot on the map. One of only two states (Washington being the other) that has legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational use, Colorado is now at the forefront of the burgeoning and highly-profitable legal marijuana industry. Denver is of course home to some of the finest dispensaries in the country, and in these shops, you can buy marijuana just as easily as you could pick up a bag of groceries. Here are some of the top dispensaries in Denver where you can score marijuana for recreational purposes.
