Posted on 03/10/2014 5:48:53 AM PDT by massmike
A barber shop in Greeley refuses service to people who smell like marijuana.
The owner of Hugos Barber Shop said he felt he had to step in when it got bad.
I feel that its my right to make the statement. Its the same thing as no shoes no service, said shop owner Hugo Corral.
When his customers, many of them with children, started expressing their frustration about the issue he decided it was time for a change.
A mother calls and says hey we cant go in there anymore because we dont want it to smell like marijuana when my childs sitting there waiting, said Corral.
For the most part he said the response has been positive.
However not everyone sees it as a good move.
Corral said hes been threatened with lawsuits and people trashing his window.
People ripping the sign off, Ive had to clean spit off my front door, said Corral.
Despite the negative reaction from some, Corral said hes going to keep the policy in place and says if people dont like it they can go somewhere else.
According to a local attorney, Corral does have the right to refuse service to someone who has been smoking pot as long as its not a Constitutional issue involving a persons race, religion or gender.

...this is a commonality among liberals. All of them are vicious, petty and out of control. I thought pot was supposed to “mellow” you out?
Maybe that IS mellow for a liberal...
True. They won’t let up either. Even if Hugo changes his mind, he’s been targeted. My Dad was a barber for 30 years. Super nice guy and a vet of WW11, Korea and 2 tours Vietnam. He never would’ve put up with this sh&&.
Wow. What a novel concept! Find someone who WANTS to do business with you...
I have a list of services I would not want someone performing for me if they have expressed their personal opposition to performing said services. Preparing food for me and cutting my hair are both in the top five on that last.
Besides which, I'm having trouble grasping that marijuana supposedly makes people mellow and yet all this violence is going on in this situation.
I think that rejecting dopers as customers is awesome
I actually have to ask these parents that want to run into court for custody if they smoke weed and tell them they aren’t smoking weed during the litigation.
--surely this guy should be forced to give haircuts to smelly customers,just as shop owners should be forced to bake cakes for those of whose lifestyle they don't approve--(sarc)
“as long as its not a Constitutional issue involving a persons race, religion or gender.”
And sexual deviation.
“I’ve had to clean spit off my front door.”
Surely sounds like those potheads in CO are civilized folks, doesn’t it? Can you imagine what that state will look like in five years?

Hippies don’t cut their hair. Problem solved.
I don’t know what it is about it, but there is a girl that works at the coffee shop in town and every once in a while she puts on a little patchouli oil. She doesn’t use an obnoxious amount, just a little touch. When I walk into the shop, I smell it and know she’s there, and it’s comforting.
I kinda like the smell of it, then again I like the smell of crude oil too.
Ha! Very good point.
ah the classiness of the pit heads reveals itself.....
Hmmm. "Homosexual" is not a gender.
