This is a stop as part of my tour. You can find out all related information such as history, usage and etc. Just take it as an educational tour to enrich your knowledge.

This museum offered information on cannabis that I never knew before. The multiple uses for this drug, plant information and variety as well as legalization was all discussed. Neat stop for the naturally curious

They even marked on our map the best coffee shops to go to, and where to buy grinders etc. It's FREE to get in, and they'll tell you anything you want to know. There's a mini tour... More
