get your pot from there. the folks at the counter when we came in were most helpful in suggesting what would be good for us newbies. they've got pre-rolled joints if you are not all that talented in rolling one or you can ask for a pipe or bong. doing so would mark you as a tourist though. don't go and be ambitious in seeking out the strongest strain..... the weak was strong enough but maybe that speaks more to the person than the product?
if pot does not really entice you, you can also get a drinky drink as ROOKIES is one of the few places that sells both pot and liquor. there is also a pool table that can keep you busy. they no longer sell spacecakes though. the guy helping us said that they were dangerous b/c people wouldn't be patient to feel its effect and would go on to eat far too many. we were able to find some at bulldog though.
a couple doors down from ROOKIES is a place that sells variations of shrooms. growing kits, chocolate bars, and a plethora of other stuff. the folks in the shop are quite generous in offering information about their products should the inquisitive mind be curious.
