This weekend the Michigan medical marijuana industry will be taking over the Auto City Speedway in Clio for the annual Midwest Cannabis Cup.

“There will be NO out-of-state submissions allowed due to the fact the federal government has the authority to regulate interstate commerce. Thus, they can prosecute individuals for transporting cannabis across state lines, even from one legal state to another,” promotional material for the event states.

The tradition carried on, exclusively in the Netherlands, until 2010 when the magazine decided to branch out and try its hand at a stateside marijuana-bash. In the states, there are two types of cannabis fests, a Medical Cannabis Cup in states like Michigan with medical marijuana laws and a Cannabis Cup in states like Colorado, where marijuana is legal for all.
The event is going on its fourth year in Michigan and is hosted by the iconic counterculture magazine High Times. According to promotional material, the two-day expo is an opportunity for medical marijuana users to test out new strains of cannabis and for dispensaries to show off their goods.
High Times, which was sold earlier this month for $42 million to a Los Angeles-based investment fund that counts Damien Marley as one of its principals, has been sponsoring Cannabis Cups since 1988. That year, magazine editor Steven Hager hosted a cannabis variety competition in Amsterdam.
In addition to trying out marijuana-related swag, attendees have the chance to catch various artists in concert such as 50 Cent, Wu-Tang Clan, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Atmosphere, Danny Brown, Devin the Dude, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Nelly.
