    (Published Friday, Feb. 9, 2018)

    Smoking marijuana outside of your own home just got a little easier in Worcester today.

    The Summit Lounge is now open and allows it’s members to relax and smoke marijuana once inside.

    Club owner, Kyle Moon says the club offers a social alternative to clubs and bars. “The medicinal use us legal as well as the recreational use, so beyond that it’s not our job to police them. We provide a safe environment for anyone to use their medicinal or recreational. We offer something alternative to the typical bar, nightclub scene,” Moon said.

    The club doesn’t sell alcohol or marijuana. Members will have to bring their own cannabis.

    Club owners tell NBC10 Boston it’s the first venue in Worcester to offer marijuana smokers a place to leisurely enjoy smoking with friends. “I think it’s great. Some place the kids can go off the street and smoke. We’re changing. It’s a good area. A lot of clubs down in this area,” said lifelong Worcester resident Bob Mastrovito.

    The club is now open only to members. On February 17th, Summit Lounge will host an open house to attract new members.
