This Texas Mexican restaurant is in the middle of a controversial topic! E-Bar Tex Mex in Dallas now has a no-weed-stink policy, according to the Dallas Observer! While the no-weed policy has been in place for years, it recently drew attention on social media after a Facebook post went viral. See the owner's reasoning below.

According to the article, E-Bar owner Ernie Quinlantan says his business has been enforcing the policy for about five years. Sometimes when the windows are cleaned, the sign gets taken down, then is put back up in a place that is not quite so obvious.

"People reeking of marijuana, it just ruins everybody's experience around them, you can't possibly have a great meal with someone who has that much odor," Quinlantan says.

In every case, he says, the smell has been overwhelming; no one is getting a sniff test as they walk in. Since he started enforcing the smell code, he says he's never had much of an issue after asking people to leave. What do you think about this restaurant's 'no-weed stink' policy?


A restaurant in Fort Worth called Caterina's that is adopting this practice into their dining experience. When customers walk into their establishment, they must lock their cell phones in a bag. This bag isn't to be opened until they are done with their meal.
In an article published by NBC-DFW, staff members at Caterina's are to keep an eye out for "disobeying" guests. Owner Tim Love stated  "we wanted to make something that was special.”  Love also said, "we're going to kindly ask them to put their phone in the bag. We've already had that happen. Some people forget. They just have their phone in their pocket. We give them the bag. They put their phone in the bag. It's not a big deal."
