DAY 2 OF 2017 LAS VEGAS CANNABIS CUP CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

Unfortunately due to high wind advisories from the National Weather Service, we will not be able to open Day 2 of the 2017 HIGH TIMES U.S. Cannabis Cup Las Vegas presented with Ultra Health. A high wind warning went into effect this morning and will remain in effect until 10 p.m. PST with winds reaching 40 mph, including wind gusts over and above 60 mph. Obviously, the safety of our patrons is of the utmost importance to HIGH TIMES, and we cannot put anyone in the middle of these dangerous weather conditions. After an exciting first day of celebrating cannabis in Nevada, we are deeply saddened that Day 2 cannot go on; however, attendees are encouraged to exchange tickets for passes to our SoCal Cannabis Cup in April. Please email cannabiscuphelp@hightimes.com for any help, questions or concerns. 


IMPORTANT NOTE TO LAS VEGAS CANNABIS CUP VENDORS AND ATTENDEES

Since our founding in 1974, HIGH TIMES has been deeply committed to creating safe, law-abiding events that allow the cannabis community to peacefully assemble and collectively celebrate the freedoms we've won through the national marijuana legalization movement.

After direct consultation with local and state authorities, HIGH TIMES, along with our partner Ultra Health, was confident we would have an event that was a safe celebration of cannabis within Nevada’s medical cannabis statutes. We have been in regular consultation with Nevada Medical Marijuana Establishments (MMEs), the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH), which oversees NV MMEs, and the Department of Taxation, and we have been very clear that we have always been prepared to host a compliant event.

HIGH TIMES thanks the Nevada Department of Public Behavior & Health and the Nevada Department of Taxation for their open correspondence and cooperation in allowing us to have our event within the confines of Nevada law.

Additionally, the HIGH TIMES U.S. Cannabis Cup Las Vegas is fully compliant with Moapa Tribal Law.

But now federal authorities have intervened directly with our host venue, the land of the Moapa Band of Paiutes. Subsequently, we've been informed that our upcoming Cannabis Cup event in Nevada ‪on March 4-5 can proceed as planned, but vendors, guests, performers and attendees are advised to comply with applicable law concerning the distribution of cannabis in any amount at the event. In order for the cannabis industry to continue to earn legitimacy and social acceptance, we understand that rules and laws need to be abided.

HIGH TIMES will continue to stand up for our civil liberties and advocate for our inalienable rights to cultivate and consume cannabis. We urge you to join us.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to cannabiscuphelp@hightimes.com.

HIGH TIMES and the Cannabis Cup are always working hard to help people exercise their legal rights—from freedom of speech to the right to assemble peacefully. We do so in cooperation with all local, state and federal laws and in partnership with local law enforcement. As the wave of legalization, decriminalization and normalization sweeps the nation, cannabis events will prosper. HIGH TIMES and the Cannabis Cup will continue to be the voice of the industry and foster collaboration and co-operation between all parties involved. 

For the situation in Nevada, we refer all media to our local partners at Parallax Strategies who were instrumental in shaping local laws and who are ensuring our partnership with the  local and state authorities is a success.
