Ready to get your creative juices flowing along with the ones in your JUUL? The Coffee Joint is the first public venue around where patrons of legal age are permitted to consume cannabis onsite. The Colorado Clean Air Act prohibits smoke and open flames in public venues, ruling out the use of a water pipe or joint. However, patrons are welcome to use dab rigs onsite, and eat the edibles of their choosing. You can also fill your vaporizer with oil, wax or flower, and puff it to your heart's content. If the products you have at home won’t meet these terms, stop by our head shop this week for the hookup. Keila, a talented and experienced painter, will help to guide novices and experts alike toward their ideal artistic creation. Free coffee and hot tea will be provided, with munchies and additional beverages also available for sale.
