The Ringer, The End of the Joint As We Know It
Colorado-based dispensary Lightshade has all of those customers: the newcomer who would like a controlled and conspicuous introduction to pot, the experienced connoisseur who’s seeking a more intense high, the health-conscious hiker who wants a portable way to enhance a stroll through the woods. The store, which opened eight years ago, has seen a shift in buying habits similar to the national trend, where concentrates and edibles are quickly outselling flower. But if you, too, are ancient enough to possess (or envy) rolling techniques, worry not. Joanne Madrid, the store’s marketing promotions manager, assured me that joints still hold a special place in people’s hearts — at least the prerolled cones.
