The first cannabis cafe in America is set to open Monday for marijuana-lovers in West Hollywood, California. Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe is a 220-seat cafe with indoor and outdoor seating where consumers can legally buy pre-rolled joints, edibles, or THC-infused drinks to enjoy over a cup of coffee or tea with friends. Singer Miley Cyrus, who is openly an avid marijuana smoker, along with DJ Mark Ronson and Comedian Chris Rock are among celebrity investors in the lounge’s parent company that aims to heighten the smoking experience by getting people out of shadowy back alleys and into seats. ‘Cannabis consumers have always been relegated to getting their cannabis in a plastic bag while you can go to a dinner party with a beautiful bottle of wine,’ David Elias, co-founder of Los Angeles-based Lowell Herb Co., told Bloomberg. ‘People want to smoke a joint with their friends in a cafe like they can over a beer – not in the alley or in their car.’ The outdoor café includes a THC- and CBD-based menu, along with an area to smoke and vape marijuana or eat edibles.There is also a non-infused food menu from renowned chef Andrea Drummer, author of Cannabis Cuisine. Plans for Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café, located on N. La Brea Avenue were approved unanimously by the city’s Business License Commission in July. Sean Black and David Elias are co-founders of the Los Angeles-based cannabis brand Lowell Herb Co., whose pre-rolled Lowell Smokes are sold at over 300 dispensaries. Black told the Los Angeles Times that his establishment’s opening marked ‘the end of prohibition’.There’s even a large billboard outside of the cafe that reads: ‘Prohibition is almost over’.
