High Times Cannabis Cup can go ahead as planned

The High Times Cannabis Cup near Las Vegas is still on for this weekend, despite an earlier letter from Nevada U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden to the Moapa Paiute Tribe warning the event would violate federal law.

The tribe is scheduled to host the large marijuana consumer-oriented event – which also attracts a large number of cannabis businesses trying to get in front of that crowd – Saturday and Sunday on Native American lands north of Las Vegas.

In a press release, High Times said Wednesday it had been told the event can go ahead 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.”

Spring 2017 MJBizConHigh Times said it consulted with local and state authorities, including licensed Nevada MMJ businesses, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, and the Department of Taxation to have “a safe celebration of cannabis within Nevada’s medical cannabis statutes.”

The news release did not mention U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden. 

The event is fully compliant with Moapa Tribal Law, the marijuana lifestyle magazine said. 

Although the Cannabis Cup is typically more oriented toward consumers instead of companies, plenty of businesses will be on hand to hawk their wares, including at least eight corporate sponsors.
