This fall, San Franciscans will be able to get high while getting swole.
A new gym called Power Plant Fitness will allow members to consume marijuana on-site while working out. It’s claiming to be the world’s first cannabis-friendly gym.
“It won’t be a place to get high and just screw around,” Jim McAlpine, founder of the cannabis event series 420 Games and cofounder of Power Plant Fitness, wrote in a blog on the company’s website. “We are focused on the athletic side, not the cannabis side.”
McAlpine’s other venture, 420 games, is like the Olympics for stoners. The company hosts athletics events nationwide, where pot enthusiasts and their families compete in triathlons, obstacle courses, mountain bike races, golf tournaments, and the signature 4.20-mile run. It launched in San Francisco in 2014.
