High Times Premieres the Country Fair Cannabis Cup

. July 25, 2016.

The Cannabis Cup returns to Michigan, back this August after the event’s progenitor, High Times, found enough support from Michigan’s MMJ community to book a second event for 2016. This time it’s called the High Times Medical Cannabis Country Fair Cup and it’ll take place at the same racetrack venue past Cannabis Cup attendees are used to, Clio’s Auto City Speedway. Stock the van with Visine and Ozium before heading about an hour north for a weekend of heady art, music and culture in addition to pristine cannabis.

The cup is not just a celebration of cannabis, but the vast culture that’s sprouted from the herb over the decades. Jam to weekend-long live music featuring cannabis friendly artists like Royce Da 5’9”, Shooter Jennings and Ann Arbor’s own Laith Al-Saadi.

The event is only open to medical patients, which means that patients can openly medicate anywhere inside the festival gates. Not a patient? Doctors will be on site to evaluate whatever it is that ails you. Patients from other states will be admitted with a valid medical marijuana qualification.

Day passes are going for $55 and weekend passes range from $135-$165
