Spoiler: The Narcos weed maze is made of fake (sad face) cannabis and there wasn’t a stitch of the good stuff anywhere on the premises, but the large-scale canna-maze, built on the roof of the City Winery at Pier 26, reminded me of a seasonal corn maze—except, you know, made of fake weed. Slogans, such as “The future will find you!” and large mirrors decorated the walls, while sound clips and the show’s theme song played over the speakers, giving the vibe that you were on your couch at home, Netflixin’ and chillin’. But we were on a rooftop in 36-degree windy winter weather—the most literal form of chillin’.
My son was perplexed by the maze and was curious about the plastic cannabis leaves that adorned the tall walls. I, too, was perplexed. How did they find that much artificial cannabis, and where? There must have been thousands of dollars worth of fake pot there. What a waste. Why not use the money on actual cannabis? Hello?!
