Welcome to LIGHTSHADE!

When you come to Lightshade you will find a very welcome contrast to the mostly disappointing medical marijuana center. Our friendly, warm and knowledgeable staff will make you feel like you have just arrived at the perfection of what you have imagined a center should and could be.  If quality and wide selections are what you are looking for in a center you have come to the right place.

Come down to Lightshade and get a great first time special and see for yourself why we are ranked among the top medical marijuana centers in the state.

The Foodchain shows off their home state Colorado's progressive marijuana laws and culture in their new video for Young Amsterdam.

Marijuana prohibition needlessly destroys the lives and careers of literally hundreds of thousands of good, hard-working, productive citizens each year in this country.

More than 800,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges last year, and more than 5 million Americans have been arrested for marijuana offenses in the past decade. Almost 90 percent of these arrests are for simple possession, not trafficking or sale.

This is a misapplication of the criminal sanction that invites government into areas of our private lives that are inappropriate and wastes valuable law enforcement resources that should be focused on serious and violent crime.

As Former President Jimmy Carter acknowledged: "Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana in private for personal use."

Colorado Amendment 64 passed in Nov 2012 legalizes the recreational use of marijuana starting January 1st, making Colorado the Young Amsterdam of the United States.  We are proud to be from Colorado and on the front lines of the movement to decriminalize and legalize marijuana across the United States.
