Event Producer Alleges That Cannifest Had to Be Postponed Because of County of Humboldt’s ‘Lack of Policies’
Press release from Cannifest:
Humboldt Green announced today that “Cannifest 2018” a cannabis festival event scheduled to be held on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds in Eureka will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced shortly.
Cannifest 2018 has been postponed due to lack of policies written by the Humboldt County Planning Division Redwood Acres Fairgrounds and Humboldt County Fair Grounds.
“In establishing Humboldt Green’s desire to host a fully regulated and legal event, it is clear that even with applying for our Cannabis Event Organizer License from the state, there are other elements that would need to happen first which are out of our control,” said Stephen Gieder, Founder of Humboldt Green. “Cannabis events in general will take on a new identity this year such as all attendees will be 21 and over, all licensed vendors and only dispensaries may sell to consumers. Knowing this, we have done what we could to gear up, but it seems that the county is not ready which in turn has slowed us to a halt. We will continue to work towards the goal of producing events both locally and afar that shine the light on the small farmer, the environment and our community of educators and innovators. We appreciate all of your support as we readjust. Stay tuned for an update soon.”
