This is the first cannabis-themed US restaurant that encourages you to smoke weed inside

Los Angeles’s Cannabis Cafe is the first restaurant in the United States that encourages its patrons to smoke weed inside. They sell cannabis products (including pre-packaged edibles) but none of the items on the menu are prepared with it. Based on Dave Holmes’s review in Esquire, quoted below, the Cannabis Cafe is certainly a high point in weed history. The bong vases are a very nice touch. From Esquire:
Once youre inside, it is impossible to detect the scent of skunk. The place is outfitted with a casino-grade air filtration system that whisks the smoke up, through a charcoal filter, and out into the West Hollywood skies. It works so well, in fact, that the Cannabis Cafe is the only place in Los Angeles that doesnt smell like weed. Its a comfy space, walls lined with living plants, a bit like the common area on Love Island. Its welcoming. Mellow. Of course….
All of the Cafes waiters are equipped to handle your bummers. As a bartender must train to learn the ABV of her beers and spot the signs of intoxication, the staff here learns the potency of all the Cafes products and how to deal with someone whos spiraling. (The secret, I am told, is a cold towel and a glass of orange juice)…
You get two different menus, one for food and one for weed. We dive into the latter first at our table: my boyfriend and me, plus another couple wed been long overdue for a dinner with.
