What Makes This A Very Special Kind Of Festival For The Amarillo Area

While it feels like the rest of the country is leaving Texas in the dust when it comes to cannabis legislation, it is nice to see something like this take place. Especially in the way that it is being planned.

While everyone wants to go out and have a good time, which there will be plenty of opportunities for, it's also a chance to learn. A lot has changed over the past several decades, especially when it comes to what is legal and what isn't.

Of Course, There Are Rules That Must Be Followed

They're pretty basic, to be honest. No weapons. No bringing in anything that is illegal in the state of Texas. In fact, there will be "Texas legal" products there, and plenty of information.

Everyone will need to show ID. There will be a bag check. All pretty standard stuff.

The point, is that not only is it going to be a lot of fun for the family, it's going to be safe. Security at the event is being taken very, very seriously.

There's A Monster List Of Vendors That Will Be There

Aside from all of the entertainment, there will be vendors of all types there. There's also going to be a lot of food trucks present.
