SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A cannabis industry entrepreneur is teaming up with a former football star to open a marijuana-friendly gym in San Francisco.

Jim McAlpine, who co-created the 420 Games – an athletics competition for marijuana users – said the new gym will be called “Power Plant Fitness.”

According to a blog post on the 420 games website, McAlpine is opening the gym with retired NFL star Ricky Williams, who was served a number of suspensions by the league over his marijuana use.

New members would be required to undergo a “cannabis performance assessment” so they can figure out how much marijuana they should have before working out. Members will also be allowed to eat edibles and vape at the gym.

The gym is expected to open in 2017.
