Falling somewhere between the “museum of” Insta-ready experiences and an actual museum, the Weedmaps Museum of Weed is setting up a series of educational exhibits about cannabis in Hollywood this summer.
Hosted by marijuana-focused tech company Weedmaps, the Museum of Weed’s goal is to demystify the substance through a chronological telling of its history and politics, starting with the early use of hemp and continuing into modern-day hysteria, hippie culture, the war on drugs and contemporary legalization efforts—all accompanied by what we expect will be fairly photogenic, shareable visual aids. The exhibition culminates in the Plant Lab, which looks toward the future of weed tech.
Just a heads up: Though there’s a cafe and gift shop, no cannabis or CBD products will be sold on-site.
The museum will set up at 720 North Cahuenga Boulevard, just a couple of blocks west of the Paramount Studios, from August 3 to September 29. Tickets (18+) cost $35, or an eye-popping $200 for an after-hours VIP experience.
