Pot-friendly Hotel Opens in Los Angeles

The Normandie Hotel in Los Angeles hopes to cash in if Golden State voters decriminalize marijuana in November. In the meantime, managers are catering to users of medical marijuana. CNN's Don Lemon goes on a tour of this first-of-its-kind hotel.

    first of its kind? there are dope motels all over this country.This may be the first where the drug dealers have have gotten the head drug dealer(schwarzenegger) to leagalize this poison.
    I have a great idea.Instead of the presidential suite they can call it the cartel palace.Call the lounge crack corner and a meeting room to teach the kids how to run the dope and call it kiddie land?
    Drugs and gangs are destroying this country and especially our youth. If there is any question go to any public school and see for yourself. But instead of making a real effort to stop it you are letting the drug dealers take over .I hope anyone that even considers this gets what they deserve and it is far more horrible than anything I can imagine.

    Good for them! I am anxiously awaiting the day INTELLIGENT politicians realize this industry is the next big economic boom of our country.

    Washington D.C. keeps claiming they will explore every option to solve our economic crisis. Excellent! Hey, Congress, lift the federal laws against cannabis and its derivatives so each state can decide for themselves!

    hey dennis? for your information marijuana is not a drug it is a plant and the only reason it is not legalized everywhere is because the government makes too much money off of it and if they legalized it they would lose money so know what ur talking about before you share your opinion. i do agree with you on the fact that drugs are not good and should be better controlled i just don't agree with the weed bash.

    Marijuana WILL be legalized. Within the next 10 years. maybe sooner. Especially if the economy stays like it is. This is a serious cash crop. It could be a trillion dollar industry if legalized.
