Tennessee has some of the strictest cannabis laws out of all the fifty states (and territories) with medical and recreational marijuana both being completely illegal. However, federally legal hemp is allowed and one Nashville restaurant is taking advantage of this. 

The very first restaurant serving cannabis-infused food has opened in Nashville, Tennessee. “Bud & Brews” opened to the public on July 28th (Langston). It seems like a typical American restaurant, serving similar food to a “Beef ‘O’ Bardy’s,” but this classic food is complimented by the addition of “hemp-derived” THC sauces, cocktails, and desserts (Langston). This is legal in Tennessee, despite the illegality of marijuana because of its hemp-derived nature. The opening of this business represents the growing acceptance of marijuana in the South, which is notoriously strict on the drug. It may also inspire other entrepreneurs to open up cannabis-themed businesses, if “Bud & Brews” is a success.
