The Ron English x High Times POPAGANJA pop up opens to the public on 147 Orchard Street on October 25, 2016 and runs until November 8, 2016.
In the pop up cannabis bodega, Ron has taken his signature parody style and given it a cannabis twist. Think a KFC container that says THC, or the words “Shredded Weed” emblazoned on a Shredded Wheat cereal box. Slated to run at Manhattan’s Lower East Side until the first week of November, plans are already underway to bring the pop up to the West Coast and beyond. The pop up bodega in NYC, however will be the launch of Popaganja and will include one-of–one Ron English x HIGH TIMES clothing items designed by HIGH TIMES merchandise creative director Brian Wood.
POPAGANJA is Ron’s first major endeavor to thrust cannabis and decriminalization into the forefront. Teaming up with the newly established HIGH TIMES Lifestyle and Apparel the partnership is two-pronged:
1. Popaganja Cannabis Bodega, The Wood Shoppe (NYC) – a bodega-themed pop up to be launched in the Lower East Side, NYC on the 25th of October;
2. Popaganja High x English Collection Launch– the launch of the High x English collaboration which was simultaneously made available on the 25th of October on the newly launched shop.HIGHTIMES.com
