THE TRUE STORY OF MARIJUANA
PROHIBITION DURING THE JAZZ ERA.
LOS ANGELES' FIRST LIVE JAZZ, BURLESQUE SHOW AND CANNABIS EXPERIENCE.
OPEN 420 VAPE BAR AND MICRO-DOSED EDIBLE TASTING.
POWERED BY GRASSFED
Marijuana Madness features world renowned Burlesque Dancer, Miss Dakota, whose effortless grace will transport you back in time and her tantalizing performance will keep you on the edge of your seat. Her unforgettable performance embodies exactly the dangerous allure that those accidentally visionary anti-marijuana propagandists were warning against.
Also gracing the stage will be Miss Marquez, innovator of Cannabis themed burlesque performances, and serves as the Artistic Director of Marijuana Madness. Miss Marquez fully embraces cannabis culture with her outlandish cannabis-themed wardrobe and the billowing clouds of smoke that envelop her signature appearances around town.
Tying together the narrative of this tale will be international and award-winning burlesque emcee, Tito Bonito aka Cuban Missile Crisis, who was named one of LA Weekly’s People of the Year 2016, and in 2017 took home the award for “most Comedic” at the Burlesque Hall of Fame.
