Leafythings has partnered with the lounge at Grand Bizarre Supper Club in Toronto to open the city’s first regulated lounge to consume pot.

On Wednesday, the cannabis directory platform announced the launch of the Cannabis Carnival smoking lounge along with the club. The cannabis lounge has already hosted the popular Smokes and Jokes comedy show.

Leafythings said in a statement it recognizes that most people do not want to climb past a crowd of smokers in order to enter a bar, restaurant or venue. The Cannabis Carnival follows the Smoke-Free Ontario Act that protects public health and safety by using a portion of the property for safe consumption.

Both partners are set to build collaborations with educational partners such as the Ontario Cannabis Store, CannSell and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

While the lounge doesn’t sell pot, the Cannabis Carnival has a special drop-off area for customers to get their weed delivered.

Leafythings is a web platform, mobile app and marketing program that says to have developed the largest cannabis consumer database in Canada.

“I think cannabis smokers, in general, need a safe, responsible place to smoke when they go out, ” Grande Bizarre Supper Club Zlatko Starkovski owner said in an interview with CBC News.

“There are a lot of people smoking at home, in cars and potentially over-consuming so we’re taking a proactive approach for cannabis smokers now that it’s been legal since 2018.”

The Grande Bizarre has the largest poolside patio in Toronto and offers food by renowned chefs and drinks.

“A sophisticated operator has created, within the regulatory constraints, a safe consumption space for over 19 consumers,” George Smitherman of the Cannabis Council of Canada added.
