Marijuana Dispensaries and Music Festivals
Discussions about marijuana have been all over the place recently. The legal marijuana industry has evolved significantly over the past few years. Most of the American population is fighting for federal legalization of Marijuana and their effort is showing success at the moment. How marijuana is going to be received at music festivals is yet to be seen as we are still not sure whether it is going to be classified as a hard drug or whether it is going to be allowed just like alcohol. The future success of the music festival industry depends upon this decisions when you consider the impact that legalization could have on the live events industries.
Music festivals would need to put in a great investment to address the concerns so that men and women using cannabis can go unharmed and help them alleviate some costs by allowing marijuana to be treated like alcohol. Marijuana dispensaries could be put up on site instead of it getting the same treatment that hard drugs get. While you need to be over twenty one years of age to purchase or use marijuana in the states where it has been legalized, the age limit for music festivals is eighteen. It could, however, be a reason for worry where alcohol is involved.
There are a lot more considerations that need to be taken on the business side of legal marijuana. The comparisons with alcohol should have given you an idea. Cannabis companies are able to engage in the market like any other ordinary companies with the continued legalization.
The possibility of marijuana exploring the same route is still unknown. Most of the concerns have been directed to the marijuana companies and not the music festivals themselves. they have seemingly given the companies the permission to use them without minding about it. In future, the music festivals may need to be more proactive. The most important requirement of the music festivals is to ensure that all the laws are followed and the interests of all the attendees are well taken care of. The orientation should not be any different to that of advertising associated with the sale and consumption of alcohol and tobacco. The same path is likely to be followed by the marijuana industry and music festivals therefore need to stay updated with this. Festivals in Canada are having a relatively easy time advocating for responsibility in this area, something that other music festivals may not be able to do.
If the regulations put in place are followed to the latter and the security buffed up a little bit, there would be no problem. Selling marijuana at music festivals will not only improve the profits but also enable companies to reach a larger target market.
