Pot Lovers Totem Pole

A totem pole hand-carved with the heads of famous pot lovers Willie Nelson, Cheech and Chong, and Bob Marley outside a local marijuana store. Free to look at, but you have to be 21 to enter the building.

[Kerin Fassler, 05/05/2019]

The totem pole was carved in September 2018. It's interesting that the most iconic pot smokers, like the most iconic rock 'n' rollers, are now either senior citizens or dead.
