Thousands flock to OKC for High Times Cannabis Cup
Thousands of medical cannabis cardholders descended on the Lost Lakes Entertainment Complex for the High Times Cannabis Cup on Saturday, leaving more than a mile of cars parked along either side of NE 10 Street.
But by the time the rock band 311 took the stage to perform in the evening Saturday, at least a thousand others were still in line awaiting their wristbands that would let them pass through the event gates.
“We waited in line for a good minute. They opened up the general admission doors a little early, so that was nice of them,” said Megan Carter, a patient from Lawton who managed to snag a patch of grass near the stage with her friends, Connor MacDonald and Craig Cunningham. “We expected it to be busy.”
