New Denver restaurant serves up pot-infused cuisine
C'mon Gov. Pawlenty. Look what Minnesotans are missing out on since you vetoed medical marijuana legislation last legislative session. Denver's new Ganja Gourmet, which claims to be the first medical marijuana restaurant in the country, serves up pot-infused pizza, lasagna (aka "LaGanja"), tapenade, and of course, brownies, allowing Colorado residents the chance to enjoy a meal while taking their medicine at the same time. Their slogan? "Our food is so great, you need a license to eat it!!"
According to the AP, customers must present a medical marijuana card acknowledging that they have a doctor's permission to patronize the restaurant. It's not cheap, either. A pizza costs $89. And you're only allowed one serving per 45 minutes.
