The pot pushers who sold Dennis Hopper medical marijuana in his dying days say they've lost one of their star clients -- and a good friend.

RadarOnline.com spoke to an employee at The Farmacy Cannabis Club in Venice, California, who confirmed the 74-year actor was a frequent patient as he battled cancer.

”We're sorry to see one of our favorite patients go,” said the staffer.

“Our love and condolences go out to his family and friends... he will be sorely missed."

In January, RadarOnline.com snapped the Oscar-nominated star of Easy Rider and Hoosiers shopping at The Farmacy.

In addition to selling marijuana and pot-infused products like brownies, lollipops and teas — all legal for qualified patients who carry a medical marijuana identification card — The Farmacy offers other holistic treatments, including herbs and vitamins, and services including acupuncture.

Hopper died Saturday after a long bout with prostate cancer. He was 74.

Hopper had fans all over the world; he appeared in over 100 films in a career that spanned six decades.

One of his most famous films, the 1969 cult classic "Easy Rider," which he both starred in and directed, was able to bring newer generations of fans together with the actor as well.

The Farmacy employee recounted: "We had Easy Rider playing on one of our televisions for the first time and he happened to come in on that very day. He was excited to see that the movie was still relevant, because a  lot of us in here hadn't seen it yet.  It was really cool."

"He was just a really nice gentleman, he was literally one of the staff's favorite people that come in here," the staffer added.

Hopper is survived by four children.
