The Caucus Club Says Guests Who Smell Like Marijuana Aren’t Welcome

A restaurant in Michigan is making it known that requirements for “proper attire” include certain limitations on “odours,” specifically those of the marijuana kind.  The Caucus Club in Detroit recently reiterated its dress code on Facebook, stating in no uncertain terms that the “smell” of marijuana is not welcome inside the business.  “Seriously people, hoodies and jerseys are not business attire. Neither are ball caps and sneakers. Most importantly, if you smell like marijuana don’t even think of stepping inside the Caucus Club,” reads the message.  Along with the post, the Caucus Club included a text-filled image outlining its “proper attire,” which stipulates that “Business Casual in the minimum dress code that should be adhered to while dining at the Caucus Club. Please be mindful that strong ‘odours’ are unacceptable. Thank you.”  The restaurant’s owner, George Sboukis, explained the post to a local TV station, saying, “It was a reminder with a little bit of sauce just to get people’s attention. I don’t mean any harm by it.”  On Facebook, many users seemed to appreciate the post. One user wrote, “Maybe marijuana users don’t realize how bad it smells. And stepping into a high-end restaurant, I’m dressing up. It’s part of the overall experience to me. And I don’t want to be seated next to the stench of weed.”
