|Tools for this tag|
A shop that primarily sells cannabis (also known as marijuana) or cannabis products. The tag should not be used to represent medical cannabis or other businesses that are selling cannabis illegally or in addition to other products.
Legal cannabis sales exist all over the world. Recently, in U.S. states like Colorado, governments have begun to issue business licenses to retailers for the sale of cannabis. These retailers typically sell to anyone 21 years or older for recreational uses. The shops are different than those in other parts of the world, as their primary function is the sale of cannabis; consumption is not allowed. Unlike medical cannabis facilities, there are no requirements for the purchaser to have a prescription or the store to provide health care. Since 2012 several US States have also legalized the recreational sale of cannabis in very similar manners.
