Legal Marijuana Mellowed Outside Lands Mega-festival

Permalink Report to webmaster

The smoke has cleared and the results are in: The first-ever legal cannabis sales and consumption at the 12th annual Outside Lands music megafestival was a major hit over the weekend.

San Francisco officials report zero police calls for service to the fenced-in legal cannabis area, dubbed Grass Lands. Medics reported zero requests for medical transport. And attendees agreed that the legal cannabis portion of the 200,000-person mega-festival was the chilliest spot in the vast Golden Gate Park.

“It went very well. It was the chillest place in the park on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday,” said a city official who asked to speak on background. “In fact, it ended up being one of the safest places in all of OSL.”

“No fights and no bad attitudes. Folks were polite and abiding by the rules. Folks consumed in proper spaces, just a few had to be asked to smoke in designated spaces. Cops were quite impressed,” the official said.

An Oasis From Alcohol

California is the only adult-use legalization state that licenses on-site cannabis sales and consumption at events. Voters approved such permits as part of Prop. 64 in 2016, lawmakers expanded eligible venues in 2017, and the first permits were issued in 2018. So far, the state has licensed 16 events for cannabis sales and consumption, but none have been as big, central, or high-profile as Outside Lands.

“It’s ridiculous we can’t have this at more festivals,” said Nick, a 26-year-old from Los Angeles, who declined to give his full name. “This is probably the most peaceful area of the entire park.”
