CANADA: Puff, puff, pass: Vancouver’s very own homage to the art and history of pot has closed up shop.
The Herb Museum, located in the B.C. Marijuana Party building on West Hastings–”in the famous Pot Block of ‘Vansterdam’” as they describe–has opted to pack it in to make room for a seed sanctuary.
Launched a decade ago, the museum’s David Malmo-Levine, told Vancouver 24hrs of late they were getting about a dozen visitors daily to their five rooms of exhibits boasting over 1,200 artifacts.
The Herb Museum has sold off much of their collection on pot and herbal medicine to a forthcoming marijuana museum opening in Detroit, Michigan. On Facebook, The Herb Museum explained to fans that the collection will be “installed in a much larger location where it will be exposed to much more traffic” than they were getting Vancouver.
