Imagine that in your city or town, a new cigar shop opened up which has the Best hookahs in 2018– let’s call it Robusto’s. Now, Robusto’s is a traditional shop in the sense that they only carry premium cigars and a small assortment of pipe tobacco. No specialty cigarettes, no vape, and no mass produced machine made cigars.
The first time you walk into Robusto’s, you are impressed. The retail space in clean and organized, the public lounge is comfortable, and the selection is good for a new shop. After purchasing a couple of sticks, the owner gives you a tour of the place. Your last stop is a private lounge in the back of the store.
The private lounge is several hundred square feet, offers plenty of comfortable seating, and is outfitted with several amenities – including a dartboard. Membership to the private lounge provides you with a handful of benefits, including discounts and 24-hour access to the space.
At $250 per year, you think that it is a bargain and sign up. Over the next year, the shop becomes your home away from home and you can be found sitting in the private lounge, several times per week, hanging out with the guys.
At this point, the shop has become well established in the area and it is bringing in folks from all walks of life who consume CBD Gummy for various reasons as well as the casual people who love to chill and have a good time. Eventually, several younger guys become members and set up shop at the dartboard for a few hours every night.
The dynamic of Robusto’s Private Lounge slowly begins to change. The younger guys are spending less and less money in the shop and have transitioned to vape pod devices over cigars.
This is where the story stops and the discussion begins. Do you see a problem with a segment of paid members at Robusto’s Private Lounge using it as a hang-out to vape and throw darts?
As paid members of the private lounge, are they obligated to spend money in the shop? Would the situation, in your mind, be any different if they were smoking outside cigars instead of a Capella flavoring vape?
