Marijuana comedy club creating a ‘buzz’ in Brampton

The city laid zoning bylaw charges against the business, saying it was not a permitted use. The city said zoning charges against Green Leaf are still before the courts, and the next appearance date is June 7. Lafferre said he met with a Peel police detective in the Major Drugs and Vice unit a month before he opened. Peel police had a different take on the issue when asked by The Guardian if that was the official position on the lounge. He said not all patrons use marijuana while at the club, and there are sometimes as many as 10 just there for the comedy.

‘Disjointed’ review: Kathy Bates stars in pot comedy

The writers also play with those conventions, such as incorporating commercial spoofs for pot-themed products, which is probably the cleverest recurring bit the show has to offer. The show veers back to more familiar terrain with the prickly relationship between Bates’ free spirit and her MBA son Travis, who has his own ongoing flirtation with a coworker. TV’s increasingly casual attitude toward pot can be seen in a number of reality shows devoted to the business of medicinal marijuana, as well as its use within premium series.
