Grass Lands: The future of cannabis at music fests?

Outside Lands' cannabis area got to sell product this year. Here's what it looked like.

At last year’s Outside Lands, a new area was introduced—Grass Lands, a showcase and safe space for cannabis users. Which, come on, it’s a giant music festival, the idea had truly come. This year, a last minute city permit approval allowed Grasslands to actually sell the stuff, and Outside Lands made history. Now you didn’t just have to listen to your favorite budtender expound on the miracles of this or that dab. You could walk away with some for later use.

Now that Grasslands has tested the water, will other fests like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass follow? (There is no Treasure Island Fest this year.) If they do, Grass Lands will have shown a way. The edition that was unveiled this past weekend featured dozens of products, vendors, and demonstrations—plus its own music stage, massage station, chill-out areas, and more. Photographer Jon Bauer was on the Outside Lands scene all weekend. Here’s what he saw at Grass Lands. — Marke B.
