‘Breach of Contract:’ Why the Ohio Cannabis Festival Has Been Canceled

“Breach of contract ” was the reason given

One of two festivals planned on the eve of recreational marijuana sales in Ohio has been canceled, part of a dispute between organizers and local officials.

A Pennsylvania-based company, Zick Productions, said its team spent six months preparing to launch the Ohio Cannabis Festival at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge. The event was set to run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, but by June 11 its website had been locked down to a solitary message.

“Summit County Agricultural Society has decided to cancel the upcoming Ohio Cannabis Festival contracted to be held Aug. 31 – Sept. 1 in a statement received by mail to organizers,” Zick Productions wrote. “This breach of contract was in accordance with city and county officials’ direction who cited ownership of the land, our commercial speech and state law.”
