Riffs and Reefer: Legalized Cannabis and Festivals

An increasing number of states, and Canada, are legalizing recreational marijuana. But festivals, where arguably the relaxed atmosphere towards pot began, are not all singing from the same songbook yet. Just days after the drug was legalized in California, Coachella expressly announced it would be a marijuana-free event. Meanwhile, Seattle’s HempFest and two California Coachella-alternatives – Kushella and Marijuana Oasis – may represent a vibrant new sector of outdoor music. This panel will offer a blueprint for producing a welcoming event that adheres to laws and regulations and embraces cannabis-themed social consciousness.
