A new and unique cannabis lounge has opened in Cheektowaga. While adult-use recreational dispensaries and on-site consumption lounges aren't open around New York State yet, this lounge is a bit different. The Roaring 420s Lounge is actually a private club where you have to be 21-years-old or over and a member. If you're a member, you don't purchase marijuana, you get samples. The club also provides other services, according to what CEO John Averill told Channel 7,

They will roll joints for you, they will pack bongs, they will provide you edibles, they will let you sample any item in their possession. None of the cannabis we have here is for sale, we don't even buy it, it's donated to us free of charge, we don't allow anyone to leave with it. It's not even guaranteed with the membership.

Members are not allowed to bring cannabis in or take cannabis out. The marijuana provided at the club is provided by vendors for testing purposes,

Here we will provide a legal space for our vendor partners to offer product samples to their future recreational and medicinal consumers. We collect product and brand review data and feed that data back to our vendor partners to improve their products with, and more advanced analytics and digital services for a modest fee.
