There Is A Town In North California Called Weed

And Netflix just named it one of the funniest town names in America.

By

This is not a joke. Up near Mount Shasta, California, there is a town of 2,704 people called Weed.

Along the main drag of Weed Blvd, you will find businesses such as the Enjoy Weed Shack gift shop and Hi-Lo Cafe. Oddly, you will not find a dispensary. You have to travel to Mt. Shasta for that. But this hasn't stopped local merchants from selling souvenirs like "A Little Bit of Weed" stash jars and "I Heart Weed" T-shirts.

The sleepy town made news last week when Netflix announced it was one of the funniest town names in America as a promotion for their "Netflix Is A Joke" campaign. The streaming service even picked up the tab for all to-go orders at the Hi-Lo Cafe.

"We shut our phone ordering system down within 15 minutes of the promotion," owner Derek We received over 350 phone calls in our office," General Manager Derek Grafton told News10 News.

Seems like more than one person in Weed had a case of the munchies.
