cannabis dispensaries
Though style may come to dispensaries in time, most look as consumer sexy as a tax preparer’s office.

What a difference a year and a little statewide referendum makes. Just one year ago there seemed to be a small smattering of unobtrusive, almost painfully anonymous cannabis dispensaries scattered around Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs, and Cathedral City (our other six sister cities currently do not allow medical marijuana dispensaries, although that may change in time).

Now, you can’t throw a bong without hitting one.

Kenneth Churchill, president and founder of West Coast Cannabis Club, opened one of the newer dispensaries in the valley, having taken advantage of Cathedral City’s recent 2017 issuance of permits. He points out that it’s not simply the access to these licenses that has made the valley attractive to his business and others.

“It was important for us to find a community that would benefit from our menu. Coachella Valley’s older demographic, heavy veteran population, and institutions such as the Desert AIDS Project would ensure that [there] would be people here who would benefit from our service,” Churchill says. “Demographics and culture were exactly what we were looking for. Progressive, artistic, open-minded people.”

Like many of the other dispensaries that have recently opened, West Coast Cannabis Club is firmly dedicated to medical use. However, if and when recreational use becomes a reality, Churchill says, “if the stigmas around cannabis are slowly chipped away, then that is simply a cherry on top.”
