California’s Chalice Festival to be First to Allow On-Site Recreational Marijuana Use and Sales
Taking place July 13 to July 15, the California Chalice Festival will be the first in the state to allow recreational marijuana to be sold and consumed on-site.
The festival is slated to take place at the San Bernadino County Fairgrounds in Victorville starting July 13 and going through July 15. Launched in 2014, this year’s Chalice Festival will feature performances by Bassnectar, Ludacris, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Sizzla Kalonji, Curren$y, Cut Chemist, Pharcyde, and Thriftworks. LiveforLiveMusic.com notes that while past events have catered to medical marijuana users and paraphernalia aficionados, this year’s event will, for the first time, allow on-site marijuana consumption and purchases for adults aged 21 and older.
“On-site product vendors will be on hand to take advantage of the post-prohibition reality that legally mashes up recreational cannabis products with the large-scale music festival concept,” representatives from the festival said in a recent press release. The event will also showcase glassblowers and hash makers.
Organizers are anticipating a crowd of around 50,000 – 60,000 people for this year’s event. Those wanting to buy tickets for the marijuana-centric music festival can do so by clicking here (please note you must be 21 to attend).
