A members-only cannabis cafe has been quietly operating in Halifax for the past two months.
Owner Chris Henderson says the High Life Social Club, located on Spring Garden Road, is a place to relax and enjoy cannabis.
“For adults, where people can come and bring their own cannabis and use it here freely,” he said. “In a nice, safe place where you feel comfortable.”
Daily, weekly, monthly and yearly memberships are available. The daily fee is $4.35 plus tax. The yearly fee: $173.92 + HST.
Henderson opened the business Sept. 6 and says it’s been steadily growing.
He says people with medical marijuana licences also like the spot, since many people don’t use cannabis in front of their families and prefer a discreet place to take their medication.
He does not allow people to smoke joints, blunts or pipes, saying he is “trying to promote healthier cannabis use.”
Instead, members can use the vaporizers provided by his business. He says they produce less tar and odour.
Henderson says the only qualifications to become a member are a government ID showing the person is at least 18 years old. They check ID every time someone enters, to avoid memberships being handed around.
There are coffee, tea, cupcakes and other food and drinks for sale. This week Henderson is bringing in comedians and the club also have an open mic night.
