For those of you that do not know, The Emerald Cup is the world's only outdoor organic cannabis competition. This year's event took place December 15th, 2012 at the Mateel Community Center in Redway, California. Redway is located in the heart of The Emerald Triangle, an area of Northern California known throughout the world as being the center of the outdoor marijuana cultivation universe. In it's ninth year, The Emerald Cup has moved from it's humble beginnings at Area 101 to the much larger Mateel Community Center. It has added sponsors such as WeedMaps, SC Labs, and Skunk Magazine. It has gone from twenty three entries to over two-hundred and has become a true public event. If you get a chance, visit the Emerald Cup which takes place every year after Fall harvest!
