Recently, our little town has gotten a lot of new small businesses.
We have two cat cafes, and they serve as coffee houses where a portion of the proceeds goes to help stray cats.
We have several little restaurants that have opened near the college; I don’t even know what they are, since I do my best to avoid the college at all costs. Because of this phenomena of an influx of new little restaurants, I don’t pay much attention when something new opens. However, that was different when I heard our little town now has a marijuana cafe. I haven’t been there yet, as it is popular with students and I don’t really care to be around college students, but I have heard some things about it. While bars have been around for as long as anyone can remember, there has not really been a similar place for people to go to consume cannabis socially. Now, though, there is such a thing as a marijuana cafe, and when I heard about that, it was news to me. Some restaurant owners and economists are even suggesting that marijuana cafes are going to be the restaurants of the future, just like bars are now. I guess if you go to the marijuana cafe you will find people smoking, vaping, and eating cannabis. So far, there does not seem to be a consensus on whether or not the cannabis cafe is legal or not. Medical marijuana is legal in our state, but recreational cannabis is not legal. I guess that means everyone in the marijuana cafe is taking their medicine at the same time. Haha!
