Las Vegas, Nevada will be home to a museum celebrating the world of cannabis, and although visitors won’t be allowed to toke up at Cannabition due to Nevada’s ban on public-use recreational marijuana, they can learn all about the plant and snap some insta-worthy pics while they visit. It will open its doors 15 months after Nevada allowed recreational use of marijuana, with sales exceeding those officials had expected.
The facility could also be a big draw for millennials, who are less likely to spend their dollars gambling, to the City of Sin.
“Our goal when people come out of this is that they don’t fear the cannabis industry if they are not believers in the industry,” said founder J.J. Walker. “Cannabition is not about just serving people that like marijuana, it’s about serving the masses that want to learn about cannabis and or just have fun and go do a cool art experience.”
The museum will be home to installations like “seed,” where visitors lay in a bed shaped like a marijuana seed, and “grow,” with artificial plants ranging in size from inches to many feet tall under bright lights to give visitors a sense of being in a grow facility.
Instarammable backdrops abound next to a glow-in-the-dark tree, a giant marijuana leaf representing an edible gummy, and by a 24-foot-tall glass bong called “Bongzilla” – the world’s largest.
Hunter S. Thompson, famed American journalist and avid drug-user, is also represented with his infamous “Red Shark” Chevrolet Caprice on display. The museum offers more than entertainment value, however. For the price of admission, guests will also get an introduction from museum guides knowledgeable about the plant, and a brief education on the making of concentrates and the different cannabis strains.
Of course, museums are not cheap to administer, and as a result, this one is sponsored by many cannabis companies, with their logos prominently displayed.
Only adults 21 and older will be allowed at Cannabition.
