Coachella Says No To Legal Marijuana

Coachella 2018 Still No-Go on Weed Even Though Cali Says Yes

Coachella 2018 Still No-Go on Weed Even Though Cali Says Yes

Coachella isn't allowing marijuana or marijuana products on the festival site either.

Californians voted in 2016 to legalize recreational marijuana and establish a system for taxing and selling the plant, paving the way for state-licensed pot shops to commence retail weed sales starting earlier this month. "Even in 2018 and beyond".

The website does leave open some possibility that the concert promoters' policy could change someday, noting that if the marijuana rules at Coachella change, "we will update this answer".

According to reports, weed won't receive any law enforcement salutes when the event goes down this spring.

A section on the festival's FAQ page declares, "Sorry bro".

Despite California's reputation as a oasis for marijuana lovers, its most famous music festival has banned the substance entirely from its iconic green, grassy fields.

State law aside, however, Coachella's organizers are free to limit what's allowed within the festival's grounds, said Indio police Sgt. Dan Marshall.

The new law in Calif. - which went into effect on January 1 of this year - allows people to smoke on private property and have about an ounce of pot on them, as long as they're 21-years-old. America's preeminent music festival returns for its 19th edition on April 13th-15th and April 20th-22nd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
