Alcohol gross sales have been permitted at live shows for years. However this weekend brings what’s believed to be a primary for an additional sort of managed substance – for the primary time, cannabis could be legally offered and consumed at a present.

The emphasis, after all, is on the phrase legally, as anybody who ever attended a Grateful Useless present can let you know.

San Francisco’s Exterior Lands Music and Arts Competition has introduced they are going to provide onsite gross sales and consumption of cannabis merchandise at this weekend’s competition in a separate, 21+ space will function two dozen cannabis distributors.

Whereas California regulation doesn’t allow cannabis smoking the place cigarettes are banned, the San Francisco Dept. of Public Well being is issued a short lived waiver on that no-smoking ban, at the very least for cannabis (common tobacco continues to be banned).

The San Francisco Chronicle stories festival-goers might be permitted to buy as much as “7 grams of non-concentrated cannabis, like dry plant materials, and a pair of grams of cannabis concentrates, that are present in vape pens and edibles.”

Whereas smoking is restricted to a confined space, cannabis infused edibles or drinks could be consumed wherever inside Grass Lands. Followers may even deliver their very own paraphernalia, until it’s made from glass or has sharp edges.

Exterior Lands options Blink-182, Think about Dragons, Lil’ Wayne, Paul Simone, and the Lumineers, amongst others. The competition runs Friday by Sunday.
