Calgary folk music fans will get a first look at what could become a regular appearance at festivals: a designated cannabis consumption area.
The Calgary Folk Music Festival will have a designated area for festivalgoers to smoke weed they bring to Prince’s Island Park when the event starts on Thursday.
“This is very much a pilot project,” Sara Leishman, Calgary Folk Music Festival’s executive director, told Rob Breakenridge on Global News Radio 770 CHQR on Wednesday.
“It is 18-plus only and people can go in there to consume legal cannabis. So that is smokable cannabis they have acquired by legal means.”
