The World of Cannabis Museum will showcase the influence of cannabis in art, music, film, news,
medicine, and politics throughout the past century. From the early days of prohibition and “reefer
madness” to its modern-day mainstream momentum and everything in between: from the legendary
growers and breeders who created and propagated all of the iconic strains, to the smugglers who
distributed them across the globe; from the activists who have fought for legalization, to the celebrities
who have embraced it; from America’s headshops to Amsterdam’s coffee shops; from the
the counterculture of the 1960s, the excesses of the ’70s, and the Drug War hysteria of the ’80s, to the rise
of medical marijuana in the ’90s and the march toward legalization and mainstream acceptance in the
new millennium—all of this and more we plan to explore in this unprecedented exhibition. Coming
