LOS ANGELES CA, October 3 ( Dr Cyberspace ) — by Robert Bishop — The Lowell Cafe Americas First Cannabis Cafe is officially opened at 1201 N La Brea Ave, West Hollywood, CA. The Lowell Cafe is the first fully licensed cannabis cafe in America.
There are some rules, however, so that no one under 21 is allowed inside. The cafe also encourages patrons not to drive home while under the influence.
“A couple of questions we ask at first is: what’s your tolerance level, and are you with someone safe or do you have a method to get home after,” explained Erika Soto, a flower host.
Uber and Lyft are easily available in Los Angeles, so that should not be a factor.
