I was unable to attend the last medical Cannabis Cup, but you better believe I'm going to the legal one in Seattle. After all, I live in the Pacific Northwest, and it will be the first legal Cannabis Cup on the West Coast. The first ever legal United States Cannabis Cup was held in Denver on 4/20, and it was nothing short of fantastic. I'd imagine this one will be just as good, or even better. Below is more information about the event. You can buy tickets by clicking here:
- Expo doors open Saturday and Sunday at 12 p.m.
- Expo closes at 8 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday, with awards show to immediately follow.
Can I smoke at the event?
Yes. A private facility to use or medicate, in compliance with RCW 69.50 and RCW 69.51A, will be available for those 21 and over.
What's the deal with buying weed?
While possession of up to an ounce of marijuana is now legal in Washington for adults ages 21+, it is still illegal to purchase marijuana.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
You must be at least 18 years of age to attend and 21 or over to access the RCW 69.50 and RCW 69.51A compliant private area. All attendees and vendors will need identification as it will be checked at the door.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We would prefer if you would use the Eventbrite app on your iPhone or Android device and we will check you in using the app. We may also scan your printed ticket or look you up by name/email if necessary.
Once you are checked in, you will receive a wristband. This wristband is your ticket in and out of the Cannabis Cup so it is very important that you DO NOT remove your wristband until the end of the Cup.
If I have a two-day ticket and can only attend on Saturday, can someone else use my ticket on Sunday?
No, once the ticket has been scanned, you will receive a wristband which is non-transferable. If someone else attempts to enter on Sunday with a broken wristband and/or a ticket that has already been scanned, it will not be valid for entry.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
No weapons or alcohol may be brought to the venue. You and your bags will be searched upon entry. Paraphernalia, cameras, and your own stash (provided it's within the legal limit) are OK.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes, if you cannot attend, you may give or sell your ticket to someone else simply by forwarding them your ticket confirmation email. However, once your ticket has been scanned, it is no longer transferable.
What is the refund policy?
Tickets are non-refundable, but they are transferable so you may give or sell your ticket to someone else.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Please don't drive impaired by alcohol or anything else.
