Go big or go home! That’s the Mint’s approach to the “Big Game” hoopla unfolding across the Valley. The Mint dispensary plans to set up a 4,800-square-foot “Mint Mall” from Friday, Feb. 10 through Sunday, Feb. 12, at the Cannabis Consumption Park near State Farm Stadium.
Akin to a beer garden, the Cannabis Consumption Park will be open to adults ages 21 and older. Highlights include infused foods, cannabis vendors with complimentary samples, live musical performances, comedy skits, celebrity appearances, and more.
“Having a cannabis-friendly celebration at the nation’s biggest sporting event of the year is a big testament to how far our industry has evolved in a relatively short time,” said Eivan Shahara, Co-Founder and CEO of Mint Cannabis, which is Arizona-based. “Our large set up will be a reflection of our five dispensaries in the Valley, where our expert budtenders cater to the needs of medical patients, experienced recreational users, and curious first-timers.”
The “Mint Mall” will feature dozens of the industry’s leading cannabis brands offering products to sample and purchase; a podcast booth featuring live interviews with Jim McMahon, Kyle Turley, Raul Molina, Red Man, and other promoters; surprise acts; and local and California-based cannabis brands and artists.
Located at the Fear Farm grounds (2209 N. 99th Ave. in Phoenix), the Cannabis Consumption Park is close enough to State Farm Stadium to be a convenient stop for ticket holders. It is also close enough to the action, so those not attending the game can still feel the energy and excitement. Attendees will find the Mint’s set up in the middle of it all.
