Berkeley's Amoeba Music Will Soon House A Marijuana Dispensary

A little THC with your tunes? For patrons of Amoeba Music in Berkeley, California, that’s now a reality.

The beloved independent music chain’s Berkeley location has just been granted a marijuana dispensary license. 

Employee Debbie Goldsberry announced the long-awaited news on Facebook on Sept. 21 – just two weeks after Amoeba Music announced its LA location had been sold – with the following declaration:

“We are planning the most epic dispensary ever at the Amoeba location on Telegraph. The dispensary will go where the jazz room is now. My mind is kind of blown right now!”

It’s been a long time coming for the storeowners, whose first request for a permit was rejected last fall. Co-owner Dave Prinz told the East Bay Express last October that “weed can help save music - absolutely…It also fits in with what we do, who we are. It's counterculture to a very high degree.”

The Berkeley Compassionate Care Collective (or BC3) will open in the store in coming months, following approval and processing. The Bay Area record store already houses a medical marijuana doctor’s office.
