Lowell Farms: America’s First Marijuana Restaurant Opens in WeHo

I was a member of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) for 35 years, freeing the weed–indeed, trying to legalize it. Trying to keep people out of the jails that are populated with real criminals and reprobates.

It’s a little victory; now is the time to cherish the legalization of marijuana. I can now experience marijuana like I did during my time in Amsterdam, with a cozy place to smoke and munch out with friends in the heart of West Hollywood. Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Café, is the first of its kind in the United States, and is located in the same spot where my favorite German restaurant, the Lorelei, was located.

All of the food at Lowell Farms, which is prepared by Chef Andrea Drummer, is natural. I had the most devilishly delicious grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had in my life, and that was before the pairing with the delicious flowers that were available to me. The desserts, candies, and beverages were also top shelf.

Prices vary and are reasonable as long as you are 21. You can choose from an assortment of quality products like hash, dabs, and sativas, as well as all kinds of vegan treats. They are barred from selling edibles or infused food due to city ordinances. Free marijuana grinders, pipes and ashtrays are available. The flower tenders and flower hosts are friendly and knowledgeable. They will even roll your joint for you tableside.

I suggest reservations, as we stood in line for over an hour without one. Once inside, it is light and airy and oh so pleasant. Everything is super yummy and chill, and everyone was enjoying themselves. The music varies from Robin Trower to Billie Holliday. The atmosphere is perfect. A true stoner paradise has come to Metropolis.
