No cannabis or cannabis products will be sold at the festival, but organizers hinted that cannabis sales could be a future addition, should the festival become a regular event. Festival organizers took note of AB 2020, which goes into effect Jan. 1 and allows cannabis consumption and purchases at certain special events.
"KMF salutes California's progressive stance on cannabis and its updated recreational/medical laws that go into effect on Jan. 1, 2019,'' the site reads. Organizers said they plan on making onsite cannabis sales ``a reality in the near future!''
