A barber shop in Greeley refuses service to people who smell like pot (marijuana).
The owner of Hugo’s Barber Shop said he felt he had to step in when it got bad.
“I feel that it’s my right to make the statement. It’s the same thing as no shoes no service,” said shop owner Hugo Corral.
His policy has to do with people who come in reeking of marijuana.
Corral said he has no problem with those who chose to use marijuana and even calls himself a supporter of the industry.
However 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 can’t go in there anymore because we don’t want it to smell like marijuana when my child’s sitting there waiting,” said Corral.
For the most part he said the response has been positive.
Other business owners have thanked him for taking a stand and his customers say it’s been a noticeable difference.
