No, A St. Louis IHOP Isn’t Refusing To Serve Guests Who Smell Like Marijuana

A photo that’s gone viral this week claims to show an IHOP restaurant in St. Louis, Missouri with a sign on its door that warns diners it will not serve or seat guests who smell of marijuana.

In fact, the photo is over a year old and the restaurant welcomes all guests “without judgement," an IHOP spokesperson tells The Cannabist.

In the photo, a typo-laden sign read:

“IHOP will not serve/seat guest with strong marijuana odor. Thank you, Managment”

The photo was posted on Facebook by Matthew Porter III on March 6. It proceeded to go viral with over 13,000 shares, and was picked up by Merry Jane as well as a massive Reddit feed. The photo has since been deleted from Reddit.
