It certainly is a healthy haul…….Patrons at San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival bought more than $1 million worth of cannabis products from licensed vendors; it was the first time a major U.S. music festival officially sanctioned cannabis sales.
Attendees at the Outside Lands festival bought more than $1 million worth of cannabis products at the state-approved GrassLands section of the festival, the San Francisco Gate reports. The festival was the first given a temporary permit by city officials to sell and consume cannabis at a festival — it was the first major U.S. music festival to officially sanction cannabis sales.
Highland Events, the festival organizers, did not share specific cannabis sales figures but told the Gate that cannabis sales at the event reached seven figures. During the event, concert-goers were allowed to purchase up to 7 grams of flower and up to 2 grams of concentrate products, including edibles, across all vendors. Available products included infused chocolates, gummies, miniature joints, raw flower, THC-infused non-alcoholic beer, and more.
