The founder of Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center was inspired to found the center because of his grandmother’s painful battle with cancer, where she may have found relief from her suffering and pain had she been legally able to use medical cannabis. His grandmother’s case coupled with many other personal acquaintances suffering from a myriad of illnesses and conditions which could find relief in medical marijuana and combined with his work as a caregiver. These instances all culminated in his choice to found a center where patients like his friends and family could receive their cannabis medicine in an accessible and safe place.

A year back I was calling TCS Compassion Center the Alpha-Omega of sites. I wondered how the other two could compete. Festive atmosphere, express lane, free food, water, spacious area with seating, a variety of daily specials with savings for buying in bulk applied. The edibles (particularly cloud 9 drops) were high dosage, ditto for the mints. The ride sucked (middle of Prov.) but I found my home. Then overnight laws lowered the dosage on edibles, (Better you get diabetes than get too high?) making them near worthless. The express lane disappeared and you may now have a 20 minute or longer wait for service. Some of the hipster laid back staff has become surly and detached (though Annie and Sam are top rate) and the once mellow low lit mood is one of frustration in the dark waiting for your number to be called so you can get out of what is now a giant cluster fuck fast. The once huge variety and special pricing have shrunk as well offering little incentive to make the drive. The parking lot is a disaster and yes, the drive still sucks. A year back 4 stars - now 2 and sinking.
I usually go to Tcs but as of late I think summit is better the edibles maybe be stronger now because Tcs had the strongest crispies at one point in time 60mg now they cut em now they only 10mg tcs flower horrible unless it's grown by DCB I smoked a couple good strains from summit n Tcs only give deals on trash weed I bought 25 dollar 8ths of fire gorilla glue from summit
why when I want to look at the menu, there is nothing there
I have heard countless stories of Slater ripping off growers to the tune of over a hundred thousand dollars total. There is no recourse for growers since you can't sue over stolen weed.
Their bud quality is good and prices are in line with all the local dispensaries, that's not to say it's good, but it's okay.
People are so friendly (except for AJ), they have free food sometimes and massages, the staff really treat you like you matter. *feel the love* I keep all the stickers from my grams and put them in a book that I call my "Marijuana Passport". It is clean & discreet, and they have open house days. The facility even has a library, it's really helpful, educational, and worth the trip for low prices on grams, I only buy the cheapest flowers for my condition or holiday specials. I'm proud to be a patient of TCS. The discounts are amazing too: 1. New loyalty card rewards 2. If you are low income 3. buy in bulk, get grams free 4. Volunteer for compensation in medicine only 5. Maybe they will give me a discount for writing this review like I've seen other dispensaries do. Wishful thinking ;)
