This Galena B&B Allows Guests to Smoke Pot During Their Stay
Ever had the urge to light up while on vacation?
Visitors to the Aldrich Guest House in historic Galena, Illinois can now partake in cannabis smoking without the fear of getting busted, reports WQAD.
Aldrich's owners, Robert and Douglas Mahan, knew that they wanted to make their B&B pot-friendly following Illinois legalizing marijuana on January 1.
The two have created a facility on Aldrich's property called The Potting Shed, an upscale lounge area where guests can comfortably toke up during their stay.
The Potting Shed features all of the amenities a smoker would want; from snacks available for purchase to glass pipes and vaporizers users can rent. There are also couches, a TV, and WiFi for guests to enjoy.
Vaporized pot pens can be used inside the shed, but if you're lighting up a pipe, guests will have to partake on the shed's patio, due to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act.
"This is going to make sure that at least the guests that are staying with us have a legal, responsible environment to consume," said Robert. "They're not going to have to be sneaking in Grant Park. They’re not going to drive out to a land and water preserve and consume, then drive back. So it’s keeping our guests, doing the right thing, and making it easier for people to do the right thing."
Interested in visiting Aldrich for the weekend? The B&B is just about an hour and twenty minutes from the QC. Rooms start at $125 per night during the non-peak season (now until the summer).
