Pot smokers know what the munchies are all about. As soon as the weed gets into your system, you slowly start getting an appetite for… anything, really. Surely, few stoners in the history of weed-smoking have decided to muster up the energy to cook exquisite three-course meals, let alone the courage to actually go to a fancy restaurant.
Junk food like pizza, tacos, and even the occasional bag of Doritos are typically associated with a stoner’s diet. But in states where pot is now legal, marijuana dining is slowly becoming a thing.
The state of Colorado has several restaurants that offer private marijuana dining for small parties of guests. For the not too low price of $200, a very unique restaurant experience awaits.
Guests can smoke citrus-flavored buds before a Mediterranean based salad. A sweeter smoke should go before the heavier main course. And for desert, caramel ice-cream sprinkled with weed. In theory, weed doesn’t taste too good, but who are we to tell the chef otherwise?
The courses are paired with selected wines or beers, while the atmosphere is enhanced by live music and flowery decorations. Needless to say, it’s a complete experience that costumers would surely return to. It could make one regard their friends with contempt next time they suggest ordering pizza while they’re getting high in one’s house.
But like everything’s that’s legally related weed, marijuana dining is only at its humble beginnings. Chefs are still experimenting with what weed goes better with what food, while growers keep trying to add flavors to their crops.
And, in fact, “legally” may not have been the best choice of words. In Colorado, weed retailers aren’t allowed to also sell food, so the restaurants can’t have a profitable partnership with the growers. Instead, they have to get the weed themselves from the nearest dispensary.
Shuttle buses also have to be provided to the guests, to make sure no one drives away from the restaurant intoxicated. Denver is just now preparing to vote if marijuana smoking should be allowed in a few limited public places.
Right now, Alaska is the only state that allows some public use of the recently-legal drug, but it’s usually limited to “tasting rooms,” furbished within commercial dispensaries.
But with five states voting on legalization come Election Day, in November, it probably won’t be long before marijuana dining becomes the best way to get the munchies.
