Missouri music festival afraid of marijuana reform? Cannabis group says theater blocked access


Is the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis, Missouri afraid of marijuana reform? Advocacy group Show-Me Cannabis says the management at the theater denied the organization’s vendor application for the Pointfest music festival — specifically because it worried about damaging its reputation. The venue apparently didn’t want to be associated with “illegal” activities.
It was especially frustrating for the group, because Show-Me Cannabis isn’t even pushing for legalization at this time — just local decriminalization reforms. Volunteers just wanted to hand out pamphlets and sell t-shirts. Riverfront Times has the story.
