ALASKA: A marijuana club that allows consumption but not sales quietly opened this week in Fairbanks, and its owners say they are operating within state law.
Coffee and doughnuts were out for customers at The Higher Calling Club, which opened Monday in a remodeled former wine bar downtown, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. Patrons could sit on overstuffed couches or use a foosball table.
“We’re going to have the whole cafe feel to it is what we’re looking for,” said Marcus Mooers, who owns the business with his wife, Megan. “As you can see, we’re trying really hard not to just run some kind of stoner slum house.”
Club members can smoke pot or eat pot-infused foods but cannot buy or sell marijuana inside the building. The cost to join is $10 per day or $25 per month.
