A late-night dispensary offering entrance to a strip club? Only in Glendale.

Business-friendly Glendale packs eight dispensaries into its 365 acres, and the enclave’s laissez-faire approach to regulation allows Smokin Gun Apothecary to thrive as one of the state’s most audacious cannabis businesses. Owned and operated by power-player Deborah Dunafon, the store is about 100 feet away from strip club Shotgun Willie’s … which is also owned by Dunafon.

Though you can’t consume cannabis in the club — or in any public space — customers purchasing flower on Mondays and Wednesdays get free cover charge and the club’s go-go dancers are known to entertain in the store Friday nights. Pass between Apothecary’s doobie pillars between 8am and midnight to peruse 50-plus flower offerings by growers such as Binske and Veritas Fine Cannabis; a variety of concentrates from the likes of The Lab and Nomad Extracts; and edibles by 1906 Chocolates and Love’s Oven.

The place doubles as an anti-prohibition exhibit, with pre-rolls stocked in a 1941 jail cell dubbed “The Joint,” with purchases made at an 1871 bank counter and a massive mural depicting the victims of the War on Drugs, from Moses Baca to Willie Nelson.
