For those who’ve never been, the High Times Cannabis Cup is a pot fair with no rides. even the 420nurses are just a part. So let’s tour.
Come early as a vendor because the access in is a bottleneck. Once inside, the people are friendly and the arena becomes like any trade show or consumer fair.
There were 280 booths/vendors in the medication area alone. This was the main section that was outdoors. The majority of the 100K attendees was here along with a stage. Entry here called for a valid state/Cali rec. From the look of the vendors, my guess is they also have theirs.
Inside the Citrus Building there were another 36 ‘non-profits’ aka NGOs, industry, and media groups. This was the area for the political medical patient. It is in this building that the seminars were held along with the official High Times voting in various categories.
The avenue of working a booth as a 420nurse is a great opportunity for any young woman who has dreamed of such an adventure but wondered about the risk involved. The nurses look out for each other and have a good time promoting the brand doing it, like a girl scout of pot.
Here are some of my samples, remembering I was able to hit 10% of the available vendors:
