An outdoor Prop 215 section of the expo facility will be available and will accommodate the needs of California medical marijuana patients. Medical professionals will be available on site.

In accordance with California law, which does not recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards or certifications, only California residents with a California doctor’s recommendation or California medical marijuana card will be allowed to enter the Prop 215 area.

Do I get any cannabis as part of my ticket price?
Due to California law we cannot give away cannabis, which is why we’ve kept the ticket price as low as possible while still putting on a world-class event.

What?! It’s the Medical Cannabis Cup and I don’t get any free cannabis?
Sorry, that’s a promise we just can’t make, but we do promise you an event celebrating the incredibly diverse and emerging medical marijuana movement, including a two-day cannabis and hemp expo that will feature cultivation seminars with HIGH TIMES editors Danny Danko and Nico Escondido, activism sessions with leaders of the medical marijuana movement and major cannabis celebrities, an all-star awards ceremony, and an unforgettable pot party with surprise musical guests.

Will I get to judge the strains, and vote for the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup?
All ticket buyers will receive a list of California dispensaries participating in the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup. State sanctioned medical marijuana patients can visit those dispensaries on their own and sample each dispensary’s entered strain in the weeks leading up to the Cup.

The HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cups will be awarded by a panel of independent experts based on extensive sampling in a blind tasting. This expert panel will be at the expo on Sunday evening to announce their decisions and award the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cups to California’s top medical marijuana providers.

Is the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup wheelchair friendly?
Daytime events at Concourse Exhibition Center are definitely wheelchair friendly, though you should contact the venue directly with any specific questions or concerns. As the Saturday night party is as a yet to be determined location, we don’t have any details, though we will update this FAQ as soon as we know more.

Do you offer any travel packages or hotel recommendations?
Not at the moment, but possibly in the future.

Is HIGH TIMES still hosting the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam?
Yes, of course. Those interested in making the ultimate pot pilgrimage to Amsterdam this November for the globe’s premiere marijuana event should head to cannabiscup.com now for more info!

    The Dutch government has partially implemented its banning of foreigners from marijuana shops. The ban started in border cities. The government claims it will phase the ban in for the rest of the country by the end of 2012!

    Yeah, yeah, we hear that Amsterdam marijuana shops and the mayor will fight back and refuse to follow the ban, but as I keep telling people, now’s the time to go to Holland, if there ever was a time, this is it, kids.

    Borrow money if you have to and GO TO HOLLAND NOW! If the ban does go into effect and you can’t legally get into Amsterdam’s legendary marijuana shops, you’ll regret it if you don’t go now. You’ll be sorry for the rest of your life.

  2. If you support prohibition then you are a member of a rapidly shrinking unconscionable and misguided minority!

    Prohibition insures Job Security for the sheer incompetent, vast corporate profits for the greedy and unconscionable, and absolute power for the despicable authoritarians that now pervade the corridors of both our main political parties, happily promoting a bipartisan Police State while providing unlimited funding for millions of ruthless criminals and terrorists.

    Every single Prohibitionist is a willing servant of tyranny and hate, having but one sole purpose – to make the rest of us suffer their putrid legacy of incalculable waste and destruction. Hand in hand with a Corporate controlled, propaganda-spewing mass-media machine, they continually connive to ensure that the inevitable consequences of their ‘not fit for purpose’ policy (the vast increase in corruption, mayhem, economic and moral decay) are all attributed to the prohibited substances themselves rather than the actual obvious and historically proven cause: the very prohibition of these substances.

    Prohibition is not simply a ‘War on Reason’ it is a dire threat to the very fabric of our nation, a slow but relentless degradation (death by a zillion cuts) of all our cherished national institutions, inclusive the nightmare of new and far more deadlier substitute-concoctions (bathtub-meth, crack-cocaine, crocodile-heroin-ersatz, and synthetic marijuana) that will leave us crippled for numerous generations.
