Los Angeles Medical Cannabis Cup 2012 

February 13, 2012
This weekend L.A. hipsters weren't talking about their cars when speaking of hybrids. It was all about the cannabis, the very best strains competing for top honors at the first ever Los Angeles Medical Cannabis Cup. The awards were sponsored by High Times and went down at the L.A. Center Studios. There was a variety of events lined up for the eclectic crowd, ranging from an art show with live painting, how-to-grow seminars, music, foodtrucks and lounging areas. However, the highlight of the event was the glorious amount of bud on hand courtesy of the growers and dispensaries that participated. All photos by Nanette Gonzales.

The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
