The road to creating the world’s largest bong ends with two flights of stairs, illuminated by a neon Tokyo skyline. Standing tall at 24-feet, plus a two-foot stabilizer, Cannabition’s salute cannabis culture was highlighted by the Herald Mail.
Celebrating Cannabis Culture with Cannabition Museum in Las Vegas
Weighing in at more than 800 pounds, not including the bong’s 100-gallon reservoir Bongzilla’s bowl can hold a quarter of a pound of marijuana (that’s four ounces for you cannabis newbies). Each of the piece’s segments have also been dipped in uranium, illuminating the bong as it sits swathed in blacklight at Cannabition.
Jason Harris of Jerome Baker Designs worked with a team of 30 artists to help make this feat of craft and skill possible.
“I make giant bongs,” he said in a Los Angeles Times Interview. “They are my voice to make noise in the world.”
Making Cannabis History on the Most Historic Street in Las Vegas
Located on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas at Neonopolis, Bongzilla has fitting company. From street performers and a giant zipline, to live music stages and some of the best venues in Las Vegas, Downtown is the perfect home for Cannabition.
“Las Vegas will be the new Amsterdam of the world,” Harris said. “I see it as a big lighthouse and beacon that says, ‘Just smoke me.’”
While visitors can’t smoke Bongzilla just yet, they can simulate taking a hit from the giant piece along with 20 other instagrammable experiences.
