A Birmingham nightclub is set to go under the microscope after police launched an investigation into claims the venue reportedly hosted a “Wily Wonka-style” cannabis chocolate fountain.
According to a report from the Birmingham Mail, as many as 200 marijuana fans descended on the PST private members’ club in Digbeth as part of an event hosted by the Birmingham City Cannabis Club.
With tickets priced at £25 a head, partygoers travelled from as far as Brighton to sample a variety of cannabis products on Easter Sunday.
The pièce de résistance, however, came via the aforementioned chocolate fountain with bananas, strawberries and grapes on hand for dipping.
Reportedly sponsored by Medi Monkey, an internet-based cannabis products company, the party even featured a special cannabis cake.
That, funnily enough, proved to be the icing on the cake for police in Birmingham with Inspector Will O’Connor, confirming to the Mail that an investigation is under way.
He said:“It has been brought to our attention that this event took place in Digbeth last weekend and are looking into the information we have been given. I would urge anyone with information about drug use or supply to call us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
A wide range of weed-related products can be purchased via the Medi Monkey website, with cannabis chocolate and bottled syrup both on the menu.
But, with police closing in on the culprits involved, those in attendance could be hit with a double dose of paranoia in the wake of this latest development. Still, at least they won’t have the munchies.
Weed products of this kind are increasingly popular in America, where the drug has been legalised in several states. Most recently, a weed-infused vodka and marijuana Nutella hit the market in the US with more innovations likely to follow.
