Though much of cannabis advocacy has progressed by divorcing the drug from its stoner, hippie past, there’s one holiday where indulgence is strictly encouraged. That would be 4/20, the annual day of celebration for all things marijuana.
Perhaps no pop-up experience honors weed’s psychedelic past more than the Magic Bus Experience. Never heard of it? No worries. For the uninitiated, MBE is a 60,000 square foot adult wonderland “comprised of multiple whimsical environments inspired by marijuana culture.”
The event hits all the wonderful stereotypes you might expect from an event like this. You can explore through a “Hotbox” white-out maze or snuggle up in a massive adult-size Pillow Fort. Feeling inspired or creative? Trek down Artist Avenue, where you can witness artists working and contribute to the Giant Coloring Book.
But perhaps most important of all is something called Munchie Mountain, described as a “a floor to ceiling snack bar” sure to satisfy your cravings. If you need more, purchase the event’s VIP package and you’ll gain access to an all-you-can-eat Chicken Nugget and Tater Tot Bar.
Those lucky enough to live and die in LA can attend the event on 4/20 itself, as MBE will be in town throughout the holiday weekend. You can find out more about the experience and buy tickets here.
