“This is a clean, well lit facility with friendly and courteous staff. The budtenders are polite and knowledgable about their product.
Being a medical patient registered in the Washington State mmj database, I was happy to learn that Buddy's, is a medically endorsed facility. In practice however, trying to marry the medical and rec shops into a "one size fits all" superstore is only hurting the people who need cannabis the most.
Washington's recreational dispensaries are ridiculously expensive compared to the State's medical dispensaries which have now been closed. :( Add to that the state's excise tax of 37% and you may find yourself paying twice to 3x as much for the same meds you bought just a month ago.
That said, there are a host of benefits to shopping rec stores, which are strictly regulated, if you've got the coin. Those on a fixed income however may find home grown cannabis as their only viable option.
For those on the rec side, Buddy's is one heck of a fine place to do business. They have extended hours and good folks behind the counter. What more can you ask for?”
