One idea I've heard is to have a place that's sort of the equivalent of a bar or coffee shop but for cannabis, a business where you can legally hang out and smoke.

That's exactly what they used to do in Amsterdam, but they've tightened it up recently under general smoking crackdowns. (And also because there started to be a backlash against drug tourism - when Amsterdam first introduced its policies, I believe the assumption was that everybody else would see it was a good model, and follow suit. But in fact neighbouring countries mostly said "well, Amsterdam's done it so if you want to smoke you can go off there and we don't need to do any work"). I think that's still basically the model though.
As detailed by noted social scientist Vincent Vega in his dialogue with senate prosecutor Jules Winnfield.
