The ‘world’s first cannabis-friendly gym’ is set to open this autumn in San Francisco.
Power Plant Fitness (what it will be called) will allow you to consume cannibis on-site, and staff will be there to also help with customers, giving them advice on the best method of personal use catered to them.
Jim McAlpine – the founder of the 420 Games and co-founder of Power Plant Fitness – has moved to highlight that the gym’s focus does remain on physical well-being.
The gym will only allow edible cannabis and vaping at first, but they are looking into an outdoor smoking area in the future.
"It won’t be a place to get high and just screw around. We are focused on the athletic side, not the cannabis side."
In an email sent to Tech Insider, McAlpine explained that cannabis will be looked on as a tool for focus and recovery, and the gym will challenge stereotypes that all stoners are idle.
