Sacramento Approves High Times Cannabis Cup

The show must go on!

So concurs the Sacramento City Council.

On Tuesday night, the dais voted 6 to 2 to approve a permit for the High Times Cannabis Cup at Cal Expo on May 4 and 5. Attendees will be able to use and purchase pot during the event.

District 1 Councilwoman Angelique Ashby and District 3 Councilman Jeff Harris voted no. They don’t believe the city is ready for what Sacramento's Cannabis Policy and Enforcement Director Joe Devlin calls a “first-of-its-kind event in the country.”
