The owner of the World Famous Cannabis Café announced Monday that she will close her doors next week after another warning by public health officials that the establishment violates indoor air rules.
The cafe will host its final Stoner Bingo session March 7, said Madeline Martinez, a longtime marijuana legalization advocate and owner of the business, which offers people 21 and older a place to socialize and use cannabis.
She doesn’t want to face fines for violating the law, she said.
The decision follows an unannounced visit last week by Erik Vidstrand, a Multnomah County tobacco program specialist, to the Southeast Foster Road cafe, Martinez said. Vidstrand pointed out ashtrays and remnants of smoked joints and reminded her that smoking is not allowed in the cafe under state law, she said.
