West Hollywood launches the first legal cannabis cafe in US.

First ever legalized cannabis cafe has been opened in West Hollywood, California in the United States. The cannabis restaurant and lounge opened its doors on Tuesday, 2nd October 2019.

Speaking to KABC-TV, the general manager Lily Estanislao disclosed that, “We wanted to break the stigma against cannabis so we wanted to create an environment where people could comfortably consume and also enjoy a really fantastic meal,”

KABC-TV gathered that, “Aside from prepackaged edibles like gummies and chocolate, the law does not allow the cafe to prepare any cannabis-infused food from their own kitchen. Still, the head chef, Le Cordon Bleu-trained Andrea Drummer, has designed a menu to enhance the cannabis experience, which can heighten users’ taste and smell.

“We have everything from your healthy salads to your super comfort foods like fried mac-and-cheese bites and we have burgers, a fried chicken sandwich,” Estanislao said. “We tried to run the gamut a little bit. We wanted the whole experience to be elevated.”

However, anyone patronizing the cannabis restaurant and lounge is expected to be 21 years or above.
