Cannabis is Back at Cannabis Cup SoCal

The city was afraid of doing something wrong

Cannabis Cup SoCal, the iconic 4/20 celebration hosted by High Times, has reclaimed its celebrated cornerstone after ironing out a misunderstanding with the City of San Bernardino.

According to attorney Chris Hickok of Shevin Law Group, state law and recent regulatory changes created a sort of “gray area” in which Proposition 215 events like the Cannabis Cup are protected through January 2019. Because the Cup allows vendors to provide medicine only to qualified patients, not recreational users, it is not the sort of “commercial activity” requiring extra scrutiny. The city council, Hickok said, denied High Times’s permit request out of an overabundance of caution after receiving a memo about adult use at 4/20 events from the state days earlier.

In essence, Hickok told mg Magazine, “the city was afraid of doing something wrong.”
