The California Senate is making some bold moves in the world of cannabis. In a resounding 33-3 vote, the Senate approved a groundbreaking bill that could see marijuana cafes become a reality. But what’s the buzz all about?
Imagine this: You walk into a dispensary, not just for your favorite strains but also for some delightful non-cannabis food and beverages. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, Assembly member Matt Haney thought so too, and he’s leading the charge with his bill, AB 374.
AB 374 aims to let cannabis consumption lounges serve up non-cannabis munchies and soft drinks. Picture this – freshly prepared food, cool soft drinks, and that cozy cannabis ambiance. Sounds like a match made in heaven! Just don’t expect alcohol or tobacco to join the party; those are staying off the guest list.
But that’s not all. Live music or performances at these establishments? Absolutely! It’s all about creating a vibrant and enjoyable cannabis experience.
This move to legalize marijuana cafes comes after some businesses danced in the gray area by teaming up with separately licensed restaurants to offer on-site consumption with a side of food. With this bill, local authorities would have the power to give the green light to cannabis lounges and ensure they’re playing by the rules.
California is making big strides in drug policy reform. They’ve even sent a bill to Governor Gavin Newsom to give adults 21 and older access to psychedelics. Plus, they’re looking out for workers who enjoy cannabis off-duty.
California, it seems, is blazing a trail towards a more progressive and exciting cannabis future! ✨🌿✨
