Amoeba Music in Berkeley can now sell weed; Amoeba LA is staying put
Iconic California record store Amoeba Music has been in the news for a couple reasons lately. The first, and most potentially exciting, is that the Berkeley location has officially acquired a license to sell marijuana. That's right--the best record store in the west is also now a pot dispensary. And when election day rolls around, you might not even need a medical license to grab some accompaniments for your music (or film, or merch) purchase. As Amoeba co-owner David Prinz said last year when they were applying for their dispensary license: "Weed can help save music — absolutely."
So thank god for that. Maybe you'll even be able to buy weed there soon.
