Oct. 8, 2010 - Smokeout Safe and Secure on-site consumption for Marihuana Patients

Smokeout Safe and Secure on-site consumption for Marihuana Patients

Smokeout Festival 2010Cypress Hill and the independent promotion company, Guerilla Union, in association with Americans for Safe Access, have announced plans to secure patients’ rights at the CYPRESS HILL SMOKEOUT festival on October 16, 2010, held at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino, CA. After consulting with local authorities and officials regarding appropriate protocol, festival producers have established a consumption area on the grounds for medical marijuana patients.

This historic milestone is unprecedented in Southern California and forges another step towards every responsible patient having the right to consume medicine in a safe environment. Cypress Hill vocalist and long-time advocate for the legalization of medical marijuana, B Real, is pleased with such a landmark, “I am really happy that the patients that are coming to hear us play will also be able to have a safe place to consume medical marijuana without fear or having to hide in the shadows.” Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union agrees, “I am thrilled that our plan for the first-ever, patient-only medical marijuana consumption area in Southern California was approved today after years of hard work and positive marijuana policy. It has always been a dream for our partners from Cypress Hill to create a unique event unlike any other.”

Since the passing of the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, California patients have been allowed to possess and cultivate cannabis for personal medical use with a valid doctor’s recommendation. It has since paved the way for social and political change surrounding the decriminalization of medical marijuana use in California. Weisberg states, “This is a defining moment not only for the medical marijuana community, but also for the music industry. I hope that our work with Cypress Hill and Americans for Safe Access continues to contribute to the future success of the medical marijuana movement.”  The onsite consumption area at the CYPRESS HILL SMOKEOUT aims to create a similar atmosphere of compassion and understanding. The patients-only consumption area will be located outdoors and will feature plenty of shade, grass and compassionate vendors. Weisberg also credits a new partnership for this achievement, “This endeavor is also the result of Guerilla Union’s strategic partnership with the Medicine and Music Project, a progressive company dedicated to business development in the medical marijuana and music industries.”

A complete and comprehensive list of appropriate procedures and regulations for festival attendees will be available on the official CYPRESS HILL SMOKEOUT website by October 6.  Festival producers urge all attendees to carefully review all protocols and prerequisites prior to attending the festival.
