LISTEN: The Holy Intersection of Pot & Synthesizers

The Vintage Synthesizer Museum is a recording studio and showroom that welcomes interchange of marijuana and music.

Since they were first incorporated into pop music more than half a century ago synthesizers and pot have gone together. From classics like the Doors and Pink Floyd to contemporary artists like MGMT and Radiohead, bands use synthesizers as a trusted means of tasking their songs to new levels of beauty and weirdness.

In this podcast Cannabis Now contributor Max Savage Levenson explores the intersection of marijuana and music through a visit to the Vintage Synthesizer Museum located in Oakland, California. The museum holds one of the largest public collections of vintage synthesizers in the world and boasts a live recording room along with a BYOP (Bring Your Own Pot) policy.
