Digital Daily: California home to first cannabis restaurant in US

Updated: October 02, 2019 04:42 PM

West Hollywood California is now home to the country's first cannabis restaurant.

Customers are waiting up to more than an hour to sit down at the Lowell Cafe for food, drink and smoke. But, they have to follow the rules.


There's gourmet level food inside the restaurant and, for a more relaxed atmosphere, there's a smoking lounge with a specialized ventilators to keep smoke from impacting the public. 

This was all made possible because of California's Proposition 64, which allows indoor smoking in cannabis lounges.

Lowell Cafe allows smoking, vaping, and offers prepackaged edibles, but no one under the age of 21 gets through the doors.

This location is the first of its kind, but with more states decriminalizing recreational use of marijuana, it's likely there are more cannabis cafes on the way.
