Medical Marijuana Cafes Designated Smoke-Free Zones in California

Medical Marijuana Cafes Designated Smoke-Free Zones in California

For a few years now, medical marijuana cafes have been springing up in states like California, Colorado and Oregon to give users of medical marijuana safe havens to self-medicate themselves for various ailments. The cafes have jumped many hurdles to get to this point, but now, the largest hurdle of all looms ahead—smoke-free zone designations.

The cafes sell coffee and food alongside the various types of marijuana. Even better, one such café in Portland, Oregon called The Cannabis Café gives the pot away free to its customers who carry a medical marijuana card. Smoking marijuana is the big draw, of course.

While most law enforcement officials have always had a bit of a problem with these marijuana cafes, there was little they could do to keep users from frequenting them. Until now. Legislators in California have passed an emergency bill designating marijuana cafes smoke-free zones, and Oregon may be right behind.

What this means to medical marijuana users is that they can no longer go to the “club” and smoke their medication. They must buy it and take it home. Swede Mann, who suffers from glaucoma and smokes marijuana for the condition on a daily basis was particularly upset upon hearing this news and said that he didn’t understand what all the fuss was.

“Yeah, sure, I understand how second-hand smoke from cigarettes can be harmful to non-smokers, but we’re talking medical marijuana, man. One guy lights up and everyone around him benefits,” he said.

While marijuana can be taken in other forms such as an ingredient in baked goods, most users claim smoking the weed has the best effect and are up in arms over not being able to take their medication as intended.

Said Swede, “Man, just when I think there is finally a way to smoke my dope legally, they come and make it illegal again. They’re really messin’ with our heads, you know?”

    Marijuana is the safest drug with actual benefits for the user as opposed to alcohol which is dangerous, causes addiction, birth defects, and affects literally every organ in the body. Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws. I drew up a very cool poster for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at Drop in and let me know what you think!
