Here's Your Guide to the 2018 National Cannabis Festival

April 19, 2018

The 3rd Annual National Cannabis Festival is right around the corner! The event is all about "celebrating progress on cannabis legalization in D.C. and across the nation."

The festival starts at high noon and ends at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, at RFK Stadium.

Food, drinks, games and music are on tap for the festival. Cypress Hill will headline this year's event, which also features reggae artists See-I, D.C. Go-Go legends Backyard Band, up-and-comer Beau Young Prince, DJ Ayes Cold, and local favorites Oh He Dead, Names, and MARLEE. 

Those interested in growing their own weed (which is legal in the District) can pop over to the Grow School, while legalization advocates and budding "ganjapreneurs" can check out the Education Pavilion. Yoga classes, meditation sessions and more are available over at the Wellness Pavilion. 

Festival-goers can also visit dispensaries on site to become a member or find information about getting a medical marijuana card.

Caroline Phillips, co-chair and co-founder of the festival, visited WPGC to talk about the event and issues surrounding marijuana legalization.

General admission tickets are $42 each and can be purchased here (tickets will be available on the day of the festival for $50 while supplies last). Keep in mind, you must be 21+ and have a valid government issued ID to attend.
