Drawing a huge crowd that formed a block-long line, the country's first marijuana cafe opened Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Called "Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe," the West Hollywood eatery features a menu consisting of THC- and CBD-infused cuisine -- prepared by a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef. While the main courses don't contain marijuana, the menu also features edibles as snacks and desserts. Plus, guests in the 5,900-square-foot establishment are allowed to light up joints, bongs and pipes at their tables.
"Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe was created because we believed there needed to be a destination for everyone to openly enjoy cannabis in the community," the cafe's owner said in a statement. "Lowell Cafe is a welcoming space for those who are cannabis connoisseurs and those who are canna-curious."
Will a cafe that allows people to get high sell more food? Does it feel like the push to legalize weed has died down a bit?
