Happy Pizza in Cambodia is No Joke
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I decided to order a happy pizza in Cambodia. I had heard stories, of course, about the infamous “happy pizzas” that are available in some of the seedier establishments in Phnom Penh. But I figured, hey, I’m a daredevil. I can handle it.
I was wrong.
Happy pizza is no joke.
The happy pizza experience started innocently enough. I spotted a place called “Happy Pizza” while walking down the street and decided to give it a try. I went inside and ordered a small pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms. The price was reasonable, so I figured I had nothing to lose.
The pizza arrived quickly and looked delicious. I took a bite… and then another… and another. It was only after the third bite that I realized something was wrong. This happy pizza was making me feel… happy. Too happy. Elated, even. The world around me started to look brighter and more vibrant. The colors seemed more intense. I was getting lightheaded and giddy.
I knew I had to get out of there before things got too out of hand, so I quickly paid for my pizza and left the restaurant. As I walked back to my hotel, I could feel the happy pizza working its magic on me. By the time I got to my room, I was practically bouncing off the walls with happiness.
It’s been a few hours now and I’m happy to report that the happy pizza effects have worn off. But man, that was a wild ride. If you’re feeling adventurous on your next trip to Cambodia, be sure to give happy pizza a try.
What is happy pizza, exactly?
In case you’re wondering, happy pizza is a type of pizza that is laced with marijuana or other drugs like magic mushrooms. It’s popular in some tourist areas of Cambodia, as well as in other parts of Southeast Asia. If you do decide to try it, be sure to go to a reputable place and start with a small amount. Happy pizza is no joke. Trust me, I learned that the hard way.
Is happy pizza legal?
Happy pizza is technically illegal in Cambodia (and in most other countries), but it’s widely available if you know where to look. Just keep in mind that you’re taking a risk when you consume any illegal substance, so proceed with caution.
