Dr. Travis Stork: On the phone we have another person who started a restaurant business someone you just saw, it’s called Ganja Gourmet. It is located in Denver Colorado and we have Steve on the phone so, what kind of food Steve, does the restaurant offer?
Steven Horowitz: How you doing there, sir?
Dr. Travis Stork: We’re doing fantastic. I got some lasagna and some humus and some pine in front of me because I heard that you have all these items made from marijuana in your restaurant.
Steven Horowitz: That’s correct but actually we call it La Ganja and the humus also comes with Ganja ganoush.
Dr. Travis Stork: Medical marijuana, one of the number one use is, is for chronic wasting disease because some people with cancer, marijuana may be the only way they have an increased appetite.
Steven Horowitz: Yeah, I think.
Dr. Travis Stork: So, marijuana does increase appetite so, does one piece of lasagna be getting another?
Steven Horowitz: Yeah, it’s very true and very funny and everybody does make jokes about that. What they say is Ganja gourmet where you never want to stop eating.
Lisa Masterson: Okay. If this, on our point way just to interrupt because of those munches and people wanted to eat more then how do you monitor how much marijuana a person is actually ingesting? How do you monitor or measure that?
Steven Horowitz: Well, we talk to our patients before we sell them anything and you know, if they tell us that they high resistance then we will steer them in the direction of one portion that we think is for people with high tolerance that they haven’t you know smoke it 20 years or ever in their life then we have them eat half of what would a normal person have and we don’t let anybody eat more than one dose in our establishment.

Dr. Jim Sears: Steve, do you have an age limit? Because I know a lot of parents are sometimes using medical marijuana in their kids for certain chronic conditions.
Steven Horowitz: That’s correct. No, if somebody under 18 has a medical marijuana license and an ID that shows that they are that person, then they may be allowed in because yes, you could be under 18 and get a license it’s just harder.
Steve, how often do you turn people away or have you had to kick people out sometimes, I’m curious.
Steven Horowitz: Well you know all this press has the whole world trying to come to my restaurant and it’s so unfortunate because we can only let you in if you have a real valid medical marijuana license and a State ID.
Dr. Travis Stork: Steve, thank you so much for joining us today. We appreciate it.
