SAN RAFAEL, CA - OCTOBER 30: A bucket of KFC Extra Crispy fried chicken is displayed October 30, 2006 in San Rafael, California. KFC is phasing out trans fats and plans to use zero trans fat soybean oil for cooking of their Original Recipe and Extra Crispy fried chicken as well as other menu items. KFC expects to have all of its 5,500 restaurants in the U.S. switched to the new oil by April 2007. (Photo Illustration by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
If you’re driving through the Los Angeles area and have a hankering for some Original Recipe chicken with its 11 herbs and spices, make sure you pull into a real Kentucky Fried Chicken store. Because if you stumble into the K.F.C. at Exposition and Hughes in Palms, you’ll find a different kind of herb altogether – the kind you need a prescription to buy.
What was once a KFC restaurant, serving the chicken and buttermilk biscuits you so crave, is now “Kind For Cures”, a medicinal marijuana dispensary, reports the LA Weekly.
There have been marijuana dispensaries popping up all over Southern California of late, but this one is slightly different. Rather than tearing the whole thing down and starting from scratch, the proprietors of this alternative KFC decided to incorporate the design of the previous tenants. They have removed the official Kentucky Fried Chicken logo, but the rest of the building remains mostly intact.
Chicken lovers, you can grab your Original Recipe down the road at National and Sawtelle. Though some might argue what this KFC serves is also finger lickin' good.
