After arriving in Denver and enduring the Avis experience yesterday, I stopped at a Wendy’s for a quick burger — and there, across the road next to the fast food, was a “recreational marijuana” shop called Euflora. It’s the first one we’ve seen on our trip, so I had to snap a picture as we drove by.
I imagine Colorado’s fast food outlets aren’t exactly unhappy to have one of their restaurants located next to a place where customers know they will soon have the munchies. I wonder if this Wendy’s store’s sales have increased since Euflora opened next door?
Euflora had the same bright signage and clean outward appearance of other commercial establishments in the suburban sprawl. At first we thought the shop had three drive-thru windows, which made us laugh — but then we realized the building was obviously a converted bank branch.
From a bank to a legal pot shop. The world is changing before our eyes.
