The cannabis culture has introduced vapor lounges as a way for marijuana enthusiasts to have a place to smoke weed legally and in a comfortable and safe setting. The states of Colorado and Washington have taken that plunge to introduce vapor lounges. Other states that have legalized weed are still not there yet. However, most of them are following the cannabis laws and introducing decriminalization of marijuana possession.
In Canada, legalization of marijuana has already taken place, but there are still things to iron out as the country tries to accept the new cannabis laws. There are loopholes that exist within the laws, allowing marijuana users to light up with friends and not be threatened by penalties of the law.
In situations where weed is illegal, it is possible that vapor lounges might not be. If you are over the age of 18 or 21 and you live in a state or location that has legalized weed, you may be able to go inside a vapor lounge and buy your supplies or you can take your own supplies with you. In Amsterdam, for example, vapor lounges are very prominent and getting more and more popular. Some of them are made into cafe style where you can have a cup of coffee and smoke weed at the same time. Vancouver, Toronto and some cities located in the United States are imitating this popular trend.
Why is smoking pot in cafes or vapor lounges OK when weed is still illegal in some places? Well due to privacy laws, the proprietors of these establishments are not supposed to ask you for a medical status of someone's marijuana, whether they are a medical cannabis patient with a card or not. The vapor lounges are not forced by law to have a specific operating license.
Many of them only have a license to do business. Most of them operate as a coffee shop that sells food and beverage. They may be required to have a license to serve food, depending on the kind of food. They can operate as food and beverage, adding features like ‘vaping.'
The vapor lounges like these provide users and consumers with a safe place to do the things that they would not be able to do while on the streets. It also creates unity amongst people of like mind and also fosters an enlightened marijuana community. Let us look at some vapor lounges in the United States.
