The Los Angeles High Times Cannabis Cup is less than a month away! What better way to get rid of your winter blues than to plan your trip?
This year’s Los Angeles Cannabis Cup will take place February 8-9 at the National Orange Show (NOS) Events Center in San Bernadino, California. Like the Amsterdam event, the LA Cannabis Cup includes an expo for marijuana-related products, live music, and the infamous cannabis competition. The expo will also feature cultivation seminars with High Times editors, activism sessions with leaders of the medical marijuana movement and major cannabis celebrities, and a pot party with surprise musical guests! Of course, a fabulous awards ceremony will end the weekend on a “high” note.
Obviously recreational marijuana is still illegal in California, making the event a little different from Amsterdam’s. The competition is limited to legally operating, licensed medical cannabis dispensaries in the state of California. While Amsterdam offers strains from a variety of international sources, the California cup is more limited.
Anyone 18 or older can attend the event, but no toking unless you are a valid California medical marijuana patient. High Times knows this is a bummer for some, but they have kept the ticket prices as low as possible to make up for it – a 2-day VIP ticket is only $85. Plus, the extra seminars and sessions with some of the world’s leading cannabis activists and celebrities will really make this event unique.
Please let us know if you plan to go! And happy toking, everyone!
