Judge says no to HighTimes Medical Cannabis Cup convention

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, February, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Thursday granted a temporary restraining order to block a two-day medicinal marijuana convention from operating this weekend in Glendale.
Two days before the scheduled Medical Cannabis Cup — a trade show organized by High Times magazine that was expected to draw up to 3,000 people each day — was set to open at the sound and film production studio in the 1200 block of South Glendale Avenue, officials said event organizers still hadn't pulled permits to host the event.
City Atty. Michael Garcia said the city was pleased with the judge's decision to grant the order.
“Not only would the event have violated multiple code provisions, but we were also concerned that the facility could not handle an event of this magnitude,” he said. “The potential that this event could have had significant public safety and traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhood was very real.”
Organizers initially tried to put on the event at the Los Angeles Center Studios in the 1200 block of West 5th Street, where they held it last year, officials said. But they were unable to acquire a “one-night dance permit” and were forced to abandon their plans, according to a Los Angeles County Court complaint for the injunction.
Organizers turned their sights to Glendale, and decided to host the event at Glendale Studios.
City attorneys alleged in their complaint that the only explanation for why organizers did not apply for permits is that they wanted to “fly under the radar” and go ahead with the event “at all costs, whether it was legal or not.”
The two-day convention was to showcase local dispensaries, hydroponic businesses, marijuana paraphernalia and clothing companies.
Rappers The Game and Redman were scheduled to perform Saturday, which raised issues with city officials because they said the venue was not zoned for concerts, only for broadcasts and recording.

HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup in Seattle

Category: Events | Posted on Wed, September, 12th 2012 by THCFinder

In the world of cannabis, West Coast products are internationally renowned for their superior quality. However, often lost in the praise is the fact that the West Coast grow scene also includes Oregon and Washington, which have been turning out top-grade ganja for decades. The roots of the West Coast cultivation scene were sown back in the 70s when hippies, back-to-landers and Vietnam vets, who swore never to be under the thumb of authority again, fled to rural areas with their seeds. In time, Northern California became the nation’s pot capital. Although overshadowed by the Golden State, Oregon and Washington were just as committed to growing top-grade pot and the strains that have flowed out of the Pacific Northwest are among the best in the world.

On Sept. 14-16, the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup will roll into Seattle, WA. Once again, we’ve assembled an expert panel of judges to sample the strains, concentrates and edibles of Washington. And, as always, our event will feature top names in the cannabis industry and unlimited opportunities to network with the medical marijuana community – whether you’re a patient or an entrepreneur. Get educated on your cannabis rights. Hear the merits and drawbacks of I-502, Washington's ballot initiative that could legalize pot in November. Plus, visit our sensational  "medication area" where medical marijuana patients can sample the top cannabis products of the state. And, of course, our VIP welcome party on Friday night, Sept. 14, featuring Conspirator, will kickoff this amazing weekend.  Come to Seattle on Sept. 14-16 for this stellar event!

Some Great Speeches from Seattle Hempfest 2012

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, August, 24th 2012 by THCFinder

The largest pro-marijuana rally in the world took place last weekend, and there were some great speeches from a wide variety of people, something Seattle’s Hempfest is known for.


Speakers in the videos below include Keith Stroup, legal counsel for and one of the founding members of NORML; Rick Steves, travel writer and marijuana law reform activist; Ngaio Bealum, a comedian who provides some great comic relief; Dan Rush from the United Food and Commercial Worker’s Union in CA; and Libertarian Party Vice Presidential candidate Judge Jim Gray.


They all bring different life experiences to the issue of marijuana legalization, and therefore they all come at the issue with different perspectives and from different angles. But they all agree in the absolute failure of marijuana prohibition, and what a destructive force it has been.


In the end, the marijuana law reform movement is nothing more than the people who comprise it; luckily we have a lot of good people fighting out there.
