Cafe Flore is hallowed ground for cannabis history legalization. In 1974 Brownie Mary met Dennis Peron at Cafe Flore over a shared joint on the patio. Dennis Peron is the Father of Medical Marijuana and Brownie Mary is known as The Angle of Mercy, and compassionate mother-figure to ‘runaway, HIV positive’ LGBTQ ‘kids’.
Dennis Peron was the leader of Proposition 215: The Compassionate Use Act which re-legalized cannabis in the United States. Brownie Mary provided cannabis-infused brownies to AIDS patients to stimulate their appetite and help with depression when no other medicine was available. Cafe Flore has been an iconic community gathering place in the LGBTQ Castro District for decades.
During the 1980’s and 1990’s at the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Cafe Flore is where members of the community gathered to share information and trade notes about managing the horrific ailments of HIV/AIDS. Community healing was paramount and present and Cafe Flore served in that capacity, with cannabis at the center of it all.
