Carl Clines flies to Amsterdam twice a year for marijuana seeds. He's always trying to find new strains. He parses out the seeds to a half dozen growers and never tells them which particular strain they'll be farming. "I don't tell them the names because if they knew, they could sell it for inflated prices." Cal Alt Caregivers is unique in its price structure. Where most dispensaries cost out product according to popularity, Clines' Caregivers charge $50 for the first one-eighth ounce and $80 for two eighths no matter what strain you buy. More than 60 percent of his clients are women and half of all clients are over 50. Tucked away on the second floor of a building near Rose Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard and across the street from Wholefoods, the waiting area looks like any doctor's office anywhere. The pharmacy is small compared to most and rather plain. There's no roulette wheel and no deals like buy two get one. But Cal Alt Caregivers is worth the trip to see a hemp surfboard and guitars signed by Melissa Etheridge and Willie Nelson.
