Coachella Cannabis

The Coachella music festival in California has banned the use of marijuana on its grounds despite California legalizing recreational marijuana on January 1st.

Coachella’s website states, “Sorry bro. Marijuana and marijuana products aren’t allowed inside [the festival]. Even in 2018 and beyond. If that changes, we’ll update this answer,” according to Billboard.

As of the January 1, anyone 21 or older in California can legally possess and use marijuana for recreational purposes. Currently, only a few dispensaries sell recreational marijuana, but expansion is coming.

Coachella Music Festival is from April 13 -20, 2018.
