High Times Plans 1st US Cannabis Cup. Slightly Stoopid & Cypress Hill to Play VIP Party at Red Rocks on 420!


UPDATE: Tickets are SOLD OUT!

We’ve received word that High Times is planning the First Annual High Times US Cannabis Cup to take place this April during 420 weekend at Denver’s Exdo Event Center! From what we understand, you do not need to be a patient to attend this historical event, but like past Colorado High Times’ Cannabis Cups, you can expect an amazing competition, informative seminars, great music, activism info, an expo and plenty of parties.

The 4/20 Saturday night VIP Party “Hotbox at Red Rocks” will feature performances by Slightly Stoopid and Cypress Hill. This should be a weekend to remember, get your tickets at MedCanCup.com! Enter to win a trip to the Cup and the VIP Party at 420flyaway.com.  (Please note, that tickets may not be available yet, and the giveaway site is coming soon… this is all preliminary info. We will update this post as we learn more, stay tuned!).

  • bryguy82

    Looks like there could be a glimse of freedom afterall. I will see you all there from chicago. Are there any specic worries as far as driving while high? How do they test ? is this type of law enforced ? Been waiting for this since 1994 . I just wish my state would at least let us vote on this at some point. Im tired of being a law abiding criminal.

    • http://coloradocannabisblog.com ColoradoCannabisBlog

      There is no way of knowing how our law enforcement will react… we recommend taking a cab, riding the bus or finding a designated driver if at all possible. Denver is a very cab-friendly city. Have fun, we hope you enjoy the Mile High City!

    Ill becoming from Texas and staying for a week. Are there places outside the event where i can buy marijuana without being a resident of Colorado?

    • http://coloradocannabisblog.com ColoradoCannabisBlog

      Sorry, but until the regulations are set up, it will still be illegal to sell/purchase cannabis. Pretty sure that it is legal for people to give away cannabis, so maybe you’ll get lucky ;) Either way, please travel safe and have an amazing time in Denver!
