West Hollywood is now officially home to the first legal restaurant in America where cannabis connoisseurs and curious guests can openly light up.
Lowell Cafe opened its doors on Tuesday. Backed by Miley Cyrus and number of other celebrity investors, the cafe is the first farm-to-table restaurant that brings cannabis and cuisine under one roof.
Los Angeles-based cannabis company Lowell Herb Co. is behind the restaurant, which is one of over 10,000 licensed cannabis operators in California, according to the state’s cannabis portal.
“We always wanted to be an institution, as far as West Hollywood is concerned,” Kevin Brady, Lowell Cafe’s director, told Yahoo Finance in an interview. « We wanted to be a great restaurant that you could go to and, instead of having alcohol, replacing [it] with the social aspects of cannabis.”
