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

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.

Tiny Expo at Ann Arbor District Library—A Curated Holiday Gift Fair with Flair

The Tiny Expo is a gem of an indie arts and crafts fair for vendors with original and unexpected products that make wonderful gifts but may not be an obvious fit for Ann Arbor’s mainstream art fairs.
