Fancy a slice of the high life? A new restaurant in Denver, Colorado, is also a registered marijuana dispensary. Ganja Gourmet, in the heart of the city’s medical marijuana district, hopes to “help distribute medicinal marijuana to those licensed to have it and provide an atmosphere where patients can visit with one another in a safe environment.”
The food side of the business, which is an addition to the ‘bud bar’ where marijuana leaves are sold to licensed consumers, offers lasagna, pizza, hummus, brownies, fudge and a variety of cheesecakes. And owner Steve Horowitz doesn’t let the lack of a kitchen interfere with his plans – all menu items are cooked in a rented commercial kitchen and reheated in the restaurant’s microwave.
If you’re in Denver, you’ll find Ganja Gourmet open from 11am to 9pm daily. And the possibility of stricter regulations at city or state level don’t phase the redoubtable Mr Horowitz either. When questioned about what he would do if eating pot filled food in dispensaries was outlawed, he said, “It would be unfortunate, but it won’t be the end of the world. At least 50 percent of sales are products to go. We’ll just offer all the food to go.”

I don’t understand all these scare tactics. I’m a 45 yr old disabled women who has been sick for a long while now (sence 1985). I was on 14 diff. pills a day all which caused bad side effects.Causing migraines, vomiting, rashes, heart palpitaions, among many other things.I was bed ridden for over three years with no life, I wanted to die.
Then someone introduced me to Marijuana, it changed my life!!!!! I threw out all the pills and smoked a bowl in the morning and one at night. It took care of my pain, my nausea,my depression, my shakes, helped me eat, eased my migraines and got me out of bed and gave me a life. I do volunteer work now, I can take care of my self now and i plan to do all I can to get something done for people like me.
To me the doctors are the biggest drug pushers there are they feed you harmful chemicals that just make you worse. Of course when I made my choice my doctors fired and red flaged me as an uncoropperative paitient I”m better off for it.If I can help in anyway I’m willing ready and now I’m able.
