Ten thousand medical cannabis patients and other fans of the herb celebrated America’s second favorite inebriant at California’s county fair of marijuana – the fourth annual High Times Medical Cannabis Cup San Francisco, held at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond June 22-23.
Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and GZA headlined the Cup concert Saturday night, while Sunday evening, the venerated marijuana magazine High Times awarded trophies in a huge weed competition for best Sativa, Indica, Hybrid, Concentrates and other categories. A two day-long expo and panel series also entertained guests, as well as three Medication Areas – where dozens of California dispensaries offered samples of the flowers, concentrates, edibles, topicals and more.
