This summer, pot enthusiasts from across the province will gather in Saskatoon for the first-annual Prairie Medicinal Cannabis Cup.
The contest is set to run from July 8 to 10, at what will remain a publicly undisclosed location up until the day of “lighting-up” commences. According to Jeff Lundstrom, a local head-shop owner who is hosting the event, the venue will be kept private to insure nothing gets in the way of a good time for those who plans to attend.
“It’s just to keep people safe, I don’t want to see people getting arrested or hassled over the weekend,” said Lundstrom.
The competition will include an array of marijuana strains from up to six licensed local growers. Also, patrons will be allowed to participate in cannabis question and answer sessions, speeches from leaders in the pot community, and each night will wrap up with live music.
Regular weekend admittance costs $100, while a judge’s pass can be purchased for $300. A judge’s pass grants exclusive sampling rights to all competing strains, and entry to the judges’ panel that determines who will take home the first-ever Prairie Cannabis Cup.
Marijuana Medical Access Regulation card holders will receive a $50 discount off both ticket prices, which can be picked up at Skunk Funk and Undergrind in Saskatoon.
