A bill that would allow Amsterdam-style cannabis cafes in California passed the state Assembly Monday afternoon on a 49-4 vote and is headed to the State Senate for further consideration. If approved, this legislation could revolutionize the cannabis industry in Los Angeles, making it one of the first states in the U.S. to allow such establishments.

After a temporary three-year closure due to the pandemic, West Hollywood's first cannabis consumption lounge, the Original Cannabis Cafe, has reopened its doors to the public. The cafe, also known as the OG Cannabis Cafe, is a popular spot for cannabis enthusiasts to gather and enjoy their favorite strains in a social setting.

Friends Wilhelmina Simone, Montana Alexander, and Leslie Jayy smoke a bong together at the newly reopened OG Cannabis Cafe. The first of its kind in Los Angeles, this cannabis cafe offers a unique experience for patrons looking to relax and socialize while consuming cannabis products.

The cannabis community has a new hang starting this February when luxurious lounge Private Reserve opens on Santa Monica Blvd. behind. This upscale establishment will cater to discerning customers looking for a high-end cannabis experience in a sophisticated setting.

Assembly Bill 1775, which would allow dispensaries to serve food and nonalcoholic beverages, is headed to the State Senate for review. If passed, this bill could further enhance the cannabis cafe experience in Los Angeles by offering a wider range of amenities to patrons.

Assemblymember Matt Haney's latest attempt to bring Amsterdam-style cannabis cafes to California just overwhelmingly passed the state Assembly. Haney has been a vocal advocate for expanding access to cannabis consumption spaces in the state, and this bill is a significant step towards achieving that goal.

The cafe is one of a handful of marijuana consumption spaces opening in Los Angeles and plans to host comedy club nights, meditation spaces, and other events for patrons. These establishments provide a safe and legal environment for cannabis enthusiasts to enjoy their favorite products while socializing with like-minded individuals.

A trailblazer in the Southern California cannabis scene is back after a four-year break. OG Cannabis Café at 1201 N. La Brea Ave. in West is poised to become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike looking to experience cannabis culture in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

California could soon be able to go to Amsterdam-style cannabis cafes across the state if Gov. Gavin Newsom signs a recently-passed bill into law. This legislation would make California one of the first states in the country to legal cannabis consumption lounges, paving the way for a new era of cannabis tourism and hospitality in the state.
