this is a story that may raise a few eyebrows. a cannabis chef wants to open a new restaurant in our area. that's right ? kimt news three's deedee stiepan has been looking into this ? she joins us live in studio this morning. deedee? if you are like me you're probably wondering how is it legal to open a restaurant where dishes made with cannabis are served... i sat down with the chef to find out about what could be a new dining experience in the med city. as a cannabis chef payton curry knows it can be intimidating when he comes into a state like minnesota where recreation use of marijuana is illegal. "they look at me and i look like weed jesus." this rochester native is an award winning chef who studied at the culinary institute of america. he now lives in arizona where he's at the center of the cannabis dining arena. "i've been cooking for 25 years of my life, i see the ability of this plant to positively influence the human experience. what i mean by that is we're making something that allows people to feel better." at his restaurants in arizona ? california and nevada ? curry prepares food with t?h?c which is the mind altering compound element of the cannabis plant that produces a "high." it's not legal in minnesota or iowa without a prescription. his vision for the restaurant he wants to open in rochester would use cannabidiol or c?b?d as an ingredient. that's the non? psychoactive part of the hemp plant that (is legal. (nats: "it is the odoules of beer meaning you can consume it without getting high.") this week curry met with city leaders about this progressive restaurant concept. "they want to know, "well how do you know there isn't thc in it and i told them yesterday i spent 20 years of my life making sure i was doing this right." so why cbd? many credit it thanks deedee. curry says one of the purposes behind the facility he's looking to open would be education. besides the restaurant ? he hopes to offer classes to teach people how to cook and make products with the hemp plant.
