The Poshest Marijuana Shop On Earth

Canna-this be true?! Quite simply, you're looking at the Apple Store of recreational drugs.

Silverpeak Apothecary is a dispensary located in Aspen, Colorado, run by local businessman Jordan Lewis. It's one of two marijuana shops in the town, where it is legal to buy the drug for personal use.

Lewis has been selling medicinal marijuana in Aspen since 2009. He was granted a licence to sell it for recreational use just over a year ago, and has been doing so since 5th March 2014. A 1/4 oz of recreational marijuana will set you back around $70-80 (£45-50), while seven grams of medicinal marijuana costs just $40 (£25).

Speaking to the Aspen Daily News in January 2014, Lewis said that the shop is designed to give customers an "open and interactive", "one-on-one" service.

There are also an amazing series of "baked sale" posters from the store, created by designer Eric Schwarzwelder. Some of the taglines are truly inspired, including: "Prices so low, we must be high!" and "The 1/8th wonder of the world!".

Now, if you'll excuse us, writing this story has made us really hungry.
