Dozens of marijuana-related panels have been proposed for next year's South by Southwest (SXSW) event, and several other submissions mention psychedelics. Now the festival needs the public's help in deciding which ones make the cut.
Through Friday, SXSW is asking people to comment and vote on 48 proposed panels for SXSW 2021 that involve cannabis and four that mention psychedelics. The festival, normally a trendy annual event in Austin, will be held online in March.
Proposals for the panels span the gamut, from issues of social equity in legal cannabis to DIY healthcare and home entheogenic medicines. Most of the proposals have an industry feel—a nod to the festival's “cannabusiness” track featured in recent years—while other pitches are especially timely: More than one mentions cannabis and COVID-19.
