Today marks six months since recreational marijuana sales began in Colorado, still the only state where such purchases can be made. (The first licensed retail shops in Washington are expected to open on July 7.) By the January 1 launch, eighteen stores had been licensed in Denver, and since then, the total has grown steadily. Some outlets have come and some have gone, but the latest total, as vetted by Westword‘s Amber Taufen, stands at a whopping 88 — fifteen more than our previous update in April.
All the licensed shops are included here, along with photos, videos, links and excerpts from reviews of the ones visited by Westword marijuana critic (your’s truly) William Breathes. See the countdown thanks to Michael Roberts below.

Happy Buds give guidance on marijuana strains that work best for more than 25 occasions, profiling more than 80 varieties

​Happy Buds: Marijuana for Any Occasion, the latest book from ganja guru Ed Rosenthal, is unlike any other marijuana book on the market, including any of Ed’s other works. The book aims to answer the question, “What strain is good for that?” in a recreational way. As the front cover puts it, “Dance • Play • Chill • Snuggle,” and it has cannabis suggestions for all the above.

Ed picked two excellent co-authors — Anna Foster and Mamakind — for Happy Buds, and it shows, both in the increased presence of female energy and perspectives, and in a more light-hearted approach than can be found in any of Rosenthal’s grow books and coffee-table bud volumes.
Whether you plan on going out to party and live it up, if you’re feeling a little down and need to let go of your cares, if you’re stressed out and need to slow down, or even if you need to focus on a complicated task, Happy Buds has a strain for you.
