The High Times Cannabis Cup is the epitome of stoner celebrations. While the main event was previously held in Denver (an awards ceremony and concert were still held in Denver on the 19), the "Cannabis Cup and Carnival," took place April 15 to 17 in San Bernardino, California. There are additional cannabis cups to come in other legal locations, such as Michigan and Portland.

Cannabis users and vendors from all over the world flocked to the three-day celebration, sampling the goods and mingling with fellow pot enthusiasts. With a ferris wheel, a medicating area, celebrity sightings and concerts, the Cannabis Cup is like the stoner baby of Election Day and Coachella.
