Will this 12 months’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Pageant viewers be extra fired up than standard? Properly, why shouldn’t it’s?
In any case, as of Jan. 1, pot is now authorized in California, should you’re 21 or older and have not more than an oz. in your private consumption on personal property.
Conveniently, Coachella — which might be headlined April 13-15 and April 20-22 by Beyonce, Eminem and The Weeknd — takes place at Indio’s Empire Polo Membership, which is privately owned and operated.
However regardless of how lots of the 125,000 day by day attendees plan to take pot to Coachella, weed remains to be a no-no on the world’s greatest annual weekend music pageant.
At the very least, it’s in response to coachella.com, whose “steadily requested questions” web page consists of the practically punctuation-free: HEY SINCE MARIJUANA IS LEGAL NOW, THAT MEANS I CAN USE IT AT COACHELLA RIGHT?
“Sorry bro,” reads the reply. “Marijuana or marijuana merchandise aren’t allowed contained in the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Pageant. Even in 2018 and past. If that modifications we’ll replace this reply.”
To strengthen this, the pageant’s Guidelines & Information web page stresses: “NO Medicine or Drug Paraphernalia, Marijuana, Marijuana merchandise.”
However the “steadily requested questions” pages signifies that some smoking units are allowed, particularly: “Single use minis (a.okay.a. cig-a-likes) are okay. Mid-sized e-cigs and vape pens are okay. Nonetheless, no liquid refills might be allowed into the venue. APVs or mods are okay in tenting, however won’t be allowed into the venue. We used Google and located this reference web page. In the event you’re nonetheless unsure in case your type is okay or not, then simply assume it’s not.”
However e-cigarettes and vape pens may be modified to vaporize marijuana, which may result in some confusion or blurring of the traces. And 2012 Coachella co-headliner Snoop Dogg simply occurs to market — amongst his many different pot-friendly merchandise — a Snoop Dogg G-pen package that’s clearly designed for consuming weed, not writing. (Considered one of Snoop’s advertising and marketing slogans is, by the way: “Let’s medicate, elevate, and put it within the air!”)
What about edible pot merchandise?
The Coachella web site signifies that these tenting on the pageant can “be happy to deliver your personal meals, drinks and coolers into on-site tenting.”
As lately, locked metallic drug “amnesty containers” might be positioned at Coachella pageant entrances, permitting festival-goers who’ve second ideas to stash their stashes.
There’s a catch, although: You possibly can solely make a deposit within the “amnesty containers,” not a withdrawal.
