Humboldt’s Marijuana Museum

Welcome to Humboldt’s Marijuana Museum.  Although Humboldt County is justly famous for its cannabis production, there has been very little done to collect the history of the plant in the area nor to document how prohibition has changed the character of the area and its inhabitants.  This page (and may there soon be more) is an attempt to gather at least a photographic and written record of this very unique slice of history.

Here is a link to the story of the first marijuana grower arrested in Humboldt County.

Anyone wishing to offer photos or other memorabilia may contact me at

Here’s to watching stuff grow– be it marijuana or museums.
